Applying DevOps practices to advance digital transformation is top of mind for many enterprises, but there can be questions about whether it makes sense for every aspect of the IT landscape. The possibility of introducing DevOps to database deployments is a relatively new notion that is emerging and trying to cement its place in the process.
Redgate Software, provider of solutions that include database DevOps, recently released its annual report on the pace of such adoption with input gathered from some 2,000 database management and other IT professionals. The report includes perspectives from enterprise organizations on challenges and conflicts they face on this front. Many respondents typically use databases that are some version of Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, MariaDB, or PostgreSQL on-prem or in the cloud.
