A recent press release states, “Datical, the leading provider of database release automation, today announced the results of an independent survey that found enterprise application teams are more hindered than ever by database teams to accelerate application updates. Additionally, the manual nature of database deployments create a bottleneck for business innovation and improving customer experiences. According to The State of Database Deployments in Application Delivery survey, a research study conducted by Dimensional Research, 90 percent of enterprise application teams face pressure to release applications more quickly, 93 percent have application delivery challenges because of database deployments, and 71 percent report more than half of all significant application changes require database changes. Ninety-one percent of respondents report that database release automation would accelerate and improve the overall application release cycle.”
The release continues, “Incredibly, a majority of enterprises are still manually reviewing, validating and deploying database changes. Ninety-three percent report challenges accelerating their database deployments, and 91 percent admit the need to rework database changes multiple times to make sure they are production-ready. Without database release automation, updating a mission-critical database to support an application change is a laborious, risky and time-consuming process that relies too heavily on human intervention.”
