WhereScape RED Other Solutions Considered

Data Architect at a non-profit with 1,001-5,000 employees
The existing traditional mainstream ETL tool and the previous one have been functioning without problems but the concept of a self-documenting tool that provides a common framework and shared metadata repository was a compelling alternative. This tool was already in use in our shop in a limited way so it begged the question on whether it could serve an expanded role. Advice: Before choosing any tool it is best to do your homework and compare features to competitors and test the tool in a real life volume scenario. Software is never what its advertised from any vendor. Don't take other's word for it, especially if they have a vested interest in you using the tool. I know of testimonials about this tool and others that are based on wishful thinking and not reality. Caveat Emptor my friends. So the real question is how far off is it and does it have show stoppers that will prevent it's use in your environment? Fail to take this precaution at your and your organization's peril.
