Keeping Pace with the Speed of Business – PASS Marathon 2018

Review this 15-minute online presentation given to members of the Professional Association for SQL Server (PASS) discussing the benefits of data warehouse automation and how it can help IT teams to better address the challenges currently faced in getting data insights into the hands of business leaders.

Learn how automation software eliminates the redundant, time-intensive steps and the gap-filled handoffs commonly experienced within the traditional data warehousing lifecycle. By addressing the entire lifecycle through automation tailored for Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft Azure or other on-premises and cloud platforms in use, WhereScape automation provides IT teams with more ability to keep up with business requests and respond quickly to business change.

“It took the architects a day and a half to solve all four use cases. They built two Data Vaults on the host application data, linked the two applications together and documented the whole process. This was impressive by any standard. After that it was an easy process to get all the documents signed.”
