A recent press release states, “Datical, the leading provider of database release automation solutions, today announced that Colonial Life, a market leader in financial protection benefits for the workplace, has selected Datical as its partner to automate the deployment of database changes and accelerate DevOps. For nearly 80 years, Colonial Life (a subsidiary of Unum Group) has been an industry-leading voluntary benefits provider in the U.S. Colonial Life serves more than 4 million people at more than 90,000 companies and organizations with a comprehensive package of voluntary benefits including disability, life, accident, dental, critical illness, cancer and hospitalization insurance.”
The release goes on, “In today’s increasingly competitive insurance market, providers must remain innovative with fast, frequent benefits updates and new application releases to deliver better customer experiences. To achieve this, organizations such as Colonial Life have turned to Agile and DevOps practices to deliver software innovation to market quickly and with high quality. However, despite investments in new technologies to automate the build, test and deployment of application code, organizations can struggle with incorporating the necessary speed and quality of database code changes into their software delivery process. This is because Agile and DevOps improvements have not been applied to the entire software development stack.”
