Quick to set up, flexible, and stable

What is our primary use case?

We are a typical manufacturing company. We have around 65 to 70 manufacturing locations all over the world, and we hold down 60 different sources of data coming from ERP, CRM, and other applications kind of thing. We have eight different data source types, such as Oracle, SQL, et cetera. It really helps in terms of automation. We have a template and we have data type matching in place. It's even configured to be a drag and drop and helps you to segregate all the objects in types of projects and tools.

Pros and Cons

  • "WhereScape is really helpful in terms of architecture data. Everything is one of automation. Two people can do thousands of tables in one day or two. It saves a lot of time."
  • "Technical support isn't the best."

What other advice do I have?

We tend to use the latest version of the solution. We are considering the cloud. We are currently debating whether we need to go to WhereScape or drop WhereScape and we go to the cloud. I've been asking about their host-ability and version controllability if we move to the cloud and they were not giving too many promising answers. Basically, when we go to cloud viewer, we want it to go completely on a platform as a service, not infrastructure as a service, as IaaS is a little more costly than PaaS - The Chinese PaaS.

  • "Project-based searching of data objects in the data warehouse browser needs to be improved."

What other advice do I have?

For the cost it has a very effective bang for buck. See comment about new owners.

Automation tool - spend less time writing code

Pros and Cons

  • "I found the initial setup very easy."
  • "The solution can be a little more user-friendly on enterprise-level where people use it."

What other advice do I have?

I would not hesitate to say that if someone has really limited time for a project it can make a difference and you can have the data ready for use in a very short period of time. This can be a lifesaver. I will rate this solution a seven out of ten.
