Are you trying to get a better understanding of the challenges associated with bringing database operations into DevOps, what other companies are doing, what the key factors are for success and what solutions are out there that can help you automate some of your database processes?

I recently had the privilege of working with Melinda Ballou, research director for IDC's Application Life-Cycle Management (ALM) program to discuss what IDC and Quest are seeing in the market and to provide some insights into why bringing database into the DevOps workflow is so important to business.

In this video, you will hear Melinda and I discuss some of these topics and then hear how Quest's solutions can help you transition many of your manual database development processes such as unit testing and code reviews so that they can become part of an automated build and delivery system. https://www.quest.com/video/enabling-database-development-agility-for-devop8131009  

Also, make sure you read the accompanying IDC Analyst Connection White Paper entitled "Integrating Database Development into DevOps for Maximum Value" https://www.quest.com/whitepaper/analyst-connection-integrating-database-development-into-devops-for-ma8130938/
