Automated database development process.

Survey says:

How often do you make changes to our development databases? 44% few times per week, 39% daily, and 17% once every few weeks.

How much automation do you have in your database development? 45% writing scripts manually and running automatically, 28% none, and 11% fully automated process.

60% of these manually building scripts have to fix or tweak them regularly as part of a deployment process.

The issues with manual process.

Manual version control process is the #1 challenge for manual database development.

Risk for manual version control process: (1) Working on the wrong versions. (2) Hard to locate outdated updates. (3) Out of process updates go unnoticed.

How do you change your version control database? 67% manually save scripts to an application code source control, and 14% use automated database source control solution.

Best practices for development and version control process.

Version control process: Check out script, modify script, get updated script from DB [database], and check-in script.

Database development process: Debug script in database, and compile script in database.

Integrated best practice process: Check-out object, modify object in database, run application’s tests, and check-in object.

Why adopt and automated process for databases? 29% increase in productivity, 24% reduction in risk, 23% quicker time to market, 17% increase in quality, and 7% reduction in cost.

Database systems are critical to the success of the business of all sizes, which is why more organizations adopting automated database development process in order to increase overall efficiency and reduce the risks that are associated with recurring changes to their databases.

Automated Database Development Process

More and more organizations are adopting automated database development processes in order to increase overall efficiency and reduce the risks associated with recurring changes to their database. According to our survey, 44% of DBAs make changes to their development databases a few times a week compared to 39% who make changes on a daily basis. Additionally, only 11% of DBAs have fully automated database development processes while 28% of DBAs have no automated process in place.

The number one challenge for manual database development is manual version control processes. Manual version control risks include working on the wrong versions, difficulties locating outdated updates, and out of process updates going unnoticed. In this infographic you’ll learn a best practice for version control process and why you should adopt an automated process for databases.
