Presentation Title: Bringing Oracle Database Development Into DevOps Without Compromising Quality, Reliability & Performance
Speaker: Mr John Pocknell Sponsored Session
Company: Quest Software
Presentation abstract: With businesses increasingly driving the adoption of DevOps and consequently the need for automated processes such as Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment in IT, the challenge of including the database into these processes has become even more important. In many companies, the traditional database development lifecycle has become the bottleneck in an otherwise agile delivery process. As such, database professionals are under increasing pressure to shorten delivery timelines even further, only increasing the stakes within an already high-stress, risk-averse environment. With little room for error in an environment where downtime can cost millions of pounds, the need to automate database development and deployment processes that can simultaneously reduce risk and deliver consistently reliable results is more important than ever.

Based on real engagements with customers who are tasked with achieving these goals, this session will first highlight the shortcomings of the traditional waterfall method and identify the typical challenges we see organisations have in attempting to automate essential database development and deployment tasks.

This session will cover the following challenges using live product presentations to illustrate an effective solution:

• Tracking code changes with source control

• Automating PL/SQL unit testing and code reviews

• Automating SQL and code optimisation

• Integration within an existing CI/CD build/deployment workflow

At the completion of this session, you will have a much clearer idea how to bring your Oracle database development operations into DevOps without compromising quality, reliability and performance.
