The Database: The Elephant in the ALM Room

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many teams and individuals are still building their databases and maintaining them through old-fashioned manual processes. This, even as these same teams move towards an automated Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) through the adoption of DevOps best practices. These manual processes are hurting the ability of your databases to keep up with modern development. Is there a technical reason for this slow adoption of ALM best practices in the database world, or is there a cultural problem preventing a reassessment of these manual processes? Or, could it be both?This session will address these questions as it explores the challenges presented by continuous delivery for databases. These challenges need to be addressed by small teams and the enterprise. We will discuss the necessary first steps required to move from a manual database deployment process to a fully automated one. You will learn about tooling that can assist you in implementing these new processes. Your database deployments can take advantage of the methods and best practices already in use within the ALM processes used by your organization in order to achieve Database Lifecycle Management.
