Presentation: Automating Your Data Warehouse by Christ Stewart/WhereScape


Some would say that the data warehouse is dead. Too costly, takes too long, hard and expensive to change.  If the data warehouse pain was reduced, would you not see it as a valuable asset to corporate operations and decision making?

In this presentation learn about a BI product segment know as data warehouse automation. Chris shows how data warehouse automation can handle repetitive and mundane development tasks to allow you more time to focus on meeting business requirements and deadlines. He will discuss how automation embraces and facilitates agile development as well as highlight its deployment and documentation capabilities. Chris will close the session demonstrating an automation tool in action.
