Datical Rebrands as Liquibase and Updates Product Portfolio

Datical, a provider of database release automation solutions, has rebranded and will be conducting operations under the name Liquibase.

Liquibase is an open source project that was created to solve the problems associated with manually updating database schemas. Datical acquired Liquibase by bringing on the project owner in 2012, and will operate under the name Liquibase moving forward.

In conjunction with this announcement, Liquibase is also unveiling a new and updated product portfolio. In addition, Dion Cornett, president of Datical, has been named president and CEO, Liquibase, and Todd Barr, CMO of Gitlab, has been named to Liquibase’s board of directors. The company has also expanded its resources for Liquibase community members, including a streamlined process and new tooling to make it easier for everyone to contribute code. Liquibase is also now part of the Amazon RDS Ready Program, under the AWS Service Ready Program.

"Our name change reflects a fundamental pivot in building value for our customers, partners, and communities,” said Cornett. “We believe in open source collaboration and are realigning our product development efforts around community-driven innovation. This means being both a good steward of our community and a trusted enterprise vendor. Our customers and community are already benefiting from a broader array of supported databases, enhanced ease of use, and faster time to value across a more flexible range of solutions."

Liquibase offers Liquibase Community for free to encourage its open source community to explore database schema change management and drive innovation. Contributions from the Liquibase community have created a foundation for the portfolio of products detailed below.

In addition to Liquibase Community, the new Liquibase product portfolio consists of:

  • Liquibase Enterprise (formerly Datical DB) helps enterprises and businesses in regulated industries conduct fast, safe database deployments that make it easy to enforce governance and stay compliant.
  • Liquibase Business provides enhanced visibility into all code changes across the pipeline to improve team workflows and maximize business impact.
  • Liquibase Pro empowers developers with advanced features for database schema changes, allowing them to evolve their database quickly and reliably.
