Datical 5 Brings Continuous Automation and Delivery to the Database

Datical, a provider of database release automation, has introduced Datical 5, the latest version of its enterprise-class platform for automating database releases.

Datical aims to bring continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) processes to the data layer, helping enterprises to achieve a unified pipeline for application and database changes—from development to production.

As the DevOps market continues to mature and evolve, enterprises must look for ways to modernize and automate their software development processes—including the database, which for years has been a bottleneck for innovation, according to Pete Pickerill, co-founder and VP of product strategy, Datical. Datical, he said, has invested in capabilities that make it easier for application teams to include the database in their development activities while better protecting the enterprises most valuable asset – data.

With Datical 5, developers can continuously manage and rework database code changes just as they would application code changes without having to go through a tedious and manual process. This allows for efficient collaboration across the DevOps pipeline and frees up time for development, test and database administration teams to create and deliver better application experiences faster. Additionally, Datical 5 delivers enhanced security to provide better protection of database credentials to safeguard enterprise-wide data, improve database auditability, and ensure regulatory requirements are being met.

Key capabilities of Datical 5 are improved communication and collaboration between development and operations teams through a collection of real-time views and dashboards that illustrate the status and velocity of database deployments. In addition, supporting overburdened DBAs, Datical automatically backs-out unwanted database changes and intelligently applies the updated changes to speed the application development process.  And, finally, Datical 5 reduces the risk of managing security credentials with a new centralized credential store to enable a safe and standard approach to managing database credentials across the enterprise.

Datical 5 is currently available in beta and will be generally available in Q2 2018.
