WhereScape’s automation software is recognized for its ability to quickly build, extend and manage data warehouses, analytic systems and big data platforms.

Portland, OR -- January 12, 2016 -- WhereScape, the data warehouse automation pioneer with software solutions for profiling, building, extending and managing data warehouses, analytic systems and big data platforms, announced today that Database Trends and Applications magazine has named WhereScape RED to its third annual list of trend-setting products in data management and analysis for 2016. DBTA Trend-Setting Products for 2016 recognizes products such as WhereScape RED that are both unique and effective in meeting the current and future needs of customers.

WhereScape RED is an integrated development environment (IDE) for building, deploying, managing, and renovating data warehouses and big data solutions. WhereScape RED builds native database objects optimized for Teradata, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2, Oracle, Greenplum, Netezza and Microsoft’s Analytics Platform System as well as Hadoop and Hive big data environments.

WhereScape RED enables practitioners to access source data from multiple environments, create procedural code, scripts, and tables, build cubes, schedule updates, and generate documentation in HTML format, all while maintaining existing BI front-end compatibility. WhereScape RED requires fewer resources to profile, build and deploy a data warehouse or analytic platform, creating a simplified infrastructure and dramatically reducing total cost of ownership.

“Today, more than ever, businesses rely on IT to deliver a competitive edge. They want efficiency, agility and the ability to innovate through better collaboration, visibility and performance,” remarked Thomas Hogan, Group Publisher of Database Trends and Applications. “However, it has become very difficult to sift through all the hype and identify products that produce results in the real world. We created this list to do the heavy lifting for you and point out the products that are really transforming enterprise data management and analysis.”

 “We are honored that WhereScape RED, our flagship automation software, has been recognized by Database Trends and applications as a trend-setting product for 2016,” said WhereScape President Mark Budzinski. “With more than 700 installations, including Tesco and United Rentals, WhereScape RED is far and away the leading and most mature automation solution available today.”

Budzinski added that data warehouse automation liberates an IT organization to pursue strategies for differentiating the company through data-driven decision making. “It’s a strategy for shifting resources—human and capital— away from repetitive tasks to value creation, and restoring data warehousing teams to relevance and leadership in their organizations," he said.
