Customization could be better. When you need to modify or write some custom code, it can get a little messy. Performance can also be better. It would be nice to have synchronicity when integrating multiple tools.

Project-based searching of data objects in the data warehouse browser needs to be improved. When processing stage (work) tables if there are a lot then one has to scroll through a larger list. There is an ability to have projects or subject areas for processing that if applied to source tables would speed development. On a separate note - those who have criticized this project for having a row based cursor and thus inefficient approach have not understood how the product works. I have used it for 10ish years and >99% of my processing is set based and efficient and supported by the product. It explicitly asks for set based vs row-based processing.

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.

Hello, I'm working at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees.  I'm trying to understand the way to host/use WhereScape RED on the Cloud. How do I implement it? Do I need a VM (IaaS) or just a DB (PaaS)?  Should I worry about any difficulties or disadvantages of using Wherescape RED on the Cloud?

Hey guys, how are you?  In this post, I’ll talk about my preferred tips and tricks that I use in ODI (any version). I’m always using these pieces of code for pretty much everything I do in ODI especially because it makes the code more elegant, dynamic, and easier to change later. First, let’s talk about my all-time preferred, Loops. Normally we learn to loop in ODI using a count variable and ...
