WhereScape RED: an Introduction and Demo of Data Warehouse Automation Tools

Please join us for an introduction and demo of  WhereScape RED presented by Douglas Barrett of WhereScape

WhereScape RED is a mature data warehouse development product that employs extensive metadata driven automation to reduce the manual overhead of building and maintaining  a data warehouse.  WhereScape originates from New Zealand – which has first world reporting requirements, but where IT budgets are small and specialized IT staff scarce.  RED was developed to overcome this shortfall by amplifying the output of the few data warehouse developers available without sacrificing control or quality.

Schedule of Events

We will start gathering for drinks and conversation at 5:30. Mr. Barrett will begin speaking at 6:15.  Strata Pass raffle immediately after the presentation.  More information below. Please come prepared with questions; this sounds very interesting!

 -Beer, wine, pizza and snacks will be provided by our sponsors:  Advantis Global (Thank you Scott!) and QAnalysts (Thank you Natalie!)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
