WhereScape, a provider of an Integrated Development Environment for data warehousing, last week said that United Rentals has purchased WhereScape RED to ensure that the structure of its data continues to meet the evolving needs of its business and markets.
“WhereScape’s rapid prototyping process enables us to quickly understand our data, get aligned with our business users, and build our Teradata data warehouse more rapidly, with the added benefit of metadata-based documentation automatically produced for our end-users and technical staff,” said Dan Mosher, director of enterprise data warehousing for United Rentals. “We are delighted with the productivity afforded by WhereScape RED, and the more automated, repeatable and documented development environment it supports.”
“WhereScape RED ensures that organizations like United Rentals are not only developing data warehousing solutions quickly, but that these solutions are easily adaptable and integrate into the existing IT infrastructure as well.”
WhereScape has head offices in Auckland, New Zealand; Portland, Ore.; and Wokingham, U.K. The rental industry’s largest company, United Rentals is based in Greenwich, Conn.
