We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
I found the initial setup very easy.WhereScape's deployment package is a fantastic feature. The application allows for selecting specific objects that you would like to deploy from one environment to another rather than deploying the entire database.WhereScape RED has improved our business's ability to generate needed reporting without requiring a large team of developers to manually code all of the necessary plumbing.Their support staff are very knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. I feel their support staff go above and beyond to assure their customers are satisfied.RED has provided us the ability to integrate, stage, and transform data from diverse sources into an enterprise-grade data warehouse which meets the needs of my organization, but it also enables us to easily and quickly make ETL or DW changes.RED generates comprehensive documentation and regenerates it as quickly as things changes, but it also provides impact documentation.Data transformations and rollups are easy to accomplish.Quickly develops a data warehouse for our organization with documentation and can track back/forward features.

The connection between Facebook lead forms and MailChimp integrations is the most valuable feature.The ability to connect web applications to trigger actions in another app after having enriched, formatted, delayed, grouped, and filtered is really valuable for many businesses.

Cons
The solution can be a little more user-friendly on enterprise-level where people use it.The scheduled jobs which are run by the WhereScape scheduler seem to be a strangely separate animal. Unlike all other WhereScape objects, jobs cannot be added to WhereScape projects. Also, unlike all other objects, jobs also cannot be deleted using a WhereScape deployment application.Jobs cannot be deleted via the deployment package. When deploying from dev to QA or production, a job has to be retired. The job has to be manually removed from the target environment.The ability to execute SSIS projects within WhereScape would be nice because we have a lot of packages that are too cumbersome to recreate.They need a more robust support center. It has been a bit difficult to find solutions to problems that are out-of-the-box.It could use a tool to diagnose what is missing from the environment for WhereScape to install successfully.Improve the object renaming ability (it works, but it could be more automated).No support for change data capture or delta detection - that must be custom coded .

Some apps are not available yet. For instance, a connection with Joomla! would be great. In general, all the most-used apps are available, but I bumped into Joomla! with a client.Being able to share Zaps and organize them with teammates would allow sharing and refining scenarios and even combining steps that require different people's credentials.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Speed to market of a warehouse solution at a relatively inexpensive price point.ROI is at least 10 times.Factor in the price of specialized consulting who know this product. They're hard to find and expensive.

Think your Zaps through to make sure you don't use more Zaps than you need.There is a free plan that is, of course, limited. However, it allows you to understand and check true scenarios for a while.

Overview
WhereScape RED is data warehouse software to help build data warehouses faster. But it is more than that. It also helps you to build data warehouses that are easy to support, change and extend. It is an integrated development environment, or IDE, especially designed to build great data warehouses faster in SQL Server, Teradata, DB2 and Oracle.

Zapier is a tool for primarily non-technical users to connect together web apps.

An integration between two apps is called a Zap. A Zap is made up of a Trigger and one or more Actions or Searches.

Whenever the trigger happens in one app, Zapier will automatically perform the actions or searches in another app in order.

Zaps are very lightweight and easy to set up. Zaps do not import or export old data (they only operate on new items created after the Zap is enabled). Zaps are also not kept in sync ("two way syncing") after the Zap is triggered.

Zaps are deceivingly simple if you're used to dealing with complex and difficult integrations. Their simplicity is what enables anyone to create them.
