DevOPs and the DBA – sponsored by Hewlett Packard Enterprise

You may have heard the word "DevOps" and wondered whether it is just another buzzword and/or what it can do for you. In this session I will demystify the concepts of DevOps and we will look at two aspects of DevOps - Continuous Integration & Continuous Delivery. Continuous Integration is the practice in which software developers frequently integrate their work with that of other members of the development team. It also involves automating tests around the integrated work. Continuous Delivery is the next step after Continuous Integration in the deployment pipeline and is the process of automating the deployment of software to test, staging, and production environments. Database migrations/changes are an area that may not be typically automated or utilise Continuous Delivery. Through the use of a comprehensive live demo to a running production database the audience will learn the benefits and how to implement Continuous Delivery in their database systems deployment pipeline.
