The features I found most valuable about this solution is the Drag and Drop function in the tables and table information. That is a quite useful feature to quickly see the metadata for the tables that you're interested in. It's easy to bring that in and start working on it right away. View full review »

Documentation (both user and technical): With so many moving parts, it is hard to keep track of the gazillion databases, tables, columns, and sources. RED generates comprehensive documentation and regenerates it as quickly as things changes, but it also provides impact documentation (quickly indicating where and what objects derive from and where they are consumed downstream).

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. This allows us to easily work as an agile team. At deployment time, WhereScape determines how to make the objects in the selected destination match the objects in the deployment application (through create and drop, then create and alter, etc.). Therefore, regardless of the state of the destination, we can be confident that the deployed objects will match the objects that we intended to deploy without disturbing anything else in the database. This is a huge benefit to our process because we can quickly create these packages, handing them off to teams who will be deployed to testing and production environments. All they have to do is deploy the package as-is. View full review »
