DevOps and the Database: Why Developers Need to Quit Making Messes for Operations to Clean Up

For too long, Development has created no shortage of problems for Operations teams. The newest mess is DevOps. With the adoption of DevOps tooling Development is faster than ever in releasing applications. But, this is lower-case application and certainly not full-stack Applications that include database change. By not enabling self-service for database schema and stored logic changes, DevOps initiatives are accelerating application releases leaving DBA’s with only one option: work harder and faster. This is a recipe for disaster. We will discuss how DBA’s, Developers, and Management should view this problem and how to find common ground to deliver outstanding customer experiences. Also, we will walk through a reference architecture that will support both speed and safety and identify key questions that database professionals should be asking prior to adopting DevOps for the Database.
