Datical, a provider of agile database automation solutions founded in 2012, has added $8 million in Series B funding, led by S3 Ventures with participation from existing investors Mercury Fund and Austin Ventures. The company plans to use the funding to expand its platform, which provides automation to help enterprises keep up with the speed of application rollouts. In addition to growing its product development team, Datical will continue to ramp up global sales, marketing and support resources and activities.
The Datical DB solution automates database change management in application release cycles, which are becoming more frequent as organizations shift toward continuous delivery models and DevOps methods to meet demands from the digital enterprise.
According to the vendor, automation at every level is a key element of DevOps, but the database is often overlooked or becomes an afterthought when companies adopt this modern approach to software delivery.
“Whether our customers are using cloud or on-premise databases, we enable them to increase the speed, accuracy and security of database change,” said Derek Hutson, CEO of Datical. “As the market turns to Datical to solve this problem, partnering with S3 enables even greater investment in our technology and provides our current and future customers with ever increasing value.”
