Subj:   Re: Anyone using Teradata Warehouse Builder?
From:   Thomas Buehlmann

I looked into the tool and was not particularly impressed for the following reasons:

1) very verbose ETL definitions reminding me of the Cobol days

2) there is no environment abstraction support, i.e., I can not abstract the code develop and test in some environments and run it in another one w/o the need to make changes.

3) developers are basically forced to load all the data to TD to perform internal ETL. (the road to external ETL seemed very arduous.) This does not always make sense....for a great many things external ETL processing is a lot faster and cheaper...
