WhereScape Software, provider of the first lifecycle management software solution specifically designed for data warehouses, announced today a technology agreement with MicroStrategy, a leading worldwide provider of business intelligence software.
WhereScape will deliver a version of WhereScape RED that integrates with MicroStrategy and enables users to easily create new data warehouses and data marts at least 30 percent faster, or in a matter of hours or a day, compared to traditional methods which take weeks and months. Not only does this make developers more productive but it slashes data warehouse development costs by as much as half. With WhereScape RED, MicroStrategy users also will be able to quickly and easily create meta data for new MicroStrategy â€œprojectsâ€ that will help minimize the complexity and time to create business intelligence reports. A â€œprojectâ€ is a mapping that communicates with MicroStrategy business intelligence tools on what data will be available to the users and how to access it.
WhereScape RED addresses the growing need for an Integrated Development Environment that supports the entire data warehouse lifecycle and provides enterprises with far more productivity, flexibility and speed in building, prototyping and enhancing data warehouses. WhereScape RED provides a complete and integrated data warehouse lifecycle management environment for data warehouses developed on Oracle, SQL Server or Teradata.
â€œThe data warehouse industry needs products like WhereScape RED, which are designed to reduce data warehouse development time and maintenance costs,â€ said Sanju Bansal, MicroStrategy COO. â€œWe are pleased that WhereScape Red has developed a version of their product that makes it easier for our customers to build new MicroStrategy business intelligence applications.â€
â€œWe are excited to have one of the worldâ€™s leading providers of business intelligence solutions as our technology partner,â€ said Michael Whitehead, president and CEO of WhereScape. â€œThe upcoming integrated solution between WhereScape RED and MicroStrategy will provide a powerful data warehouse and business intelligence solution for users.â€
