Omaha SSUG – October 2014 – Building An Automated Database Deployment Pipeline

Our next Omaha SQL/BI User Group meeting will be Wednesday, October 8th, 2014 at 6PM. We will be sponsored and hosted by Farm Credit Services of America, 5015 South 118th ST, Omaha, NE 68137, in their North building.

Our April 2014 speaker will be Alex Yates from Red-Gate Software.  He joins us all of the way from the United Kingdom to give a dazzling presentation on automated database deployments!  This is an event you will not want to miss.

Alex Yates has worked with database change management tools for four years, collaborating closely with users and dev teams along the way. As a pre-sales engineer, he gets to see a huge variety of server and dev environments, and helps folks solve their database development and delivery problems in whatever way works well for them. Ever the sharer, he also blogs about the lessons he learns:

The pace of business accelerates fairly continuously and application development moves right with it. But we’re still trying to deploy databases the same way we did 10 years ago. This session addresses the need for changes in organizational structure, process and technology necessary to arrive at a nimble, fast, automatable and continuous database deployment process. We’ll use actual customer case studies to illustrate both the common methods and the unique context that led to a continuous delivery process that is best described as a pipeline. You will learn how to customize common practices and tool sets to build a database deployment pipeline unique to your environment in order to speed your own database delivery while still protecting your organization’s most valuable asset, its data.
