Database Release Automation
Implementing a fully automated, continuous application delivery process requires that ALL configuration items, including those that are stored in a database, be version controlled and deployed as part of the full cycle.
Unfortunately, a recent survey showed that many companies which implement continuous delivery for their application code do not do the same for their database code.
Here are some of the database configuration items that Clarive is capable of managing:
1) DDL, schema
3) Application Configuration stored in the Database
Why is Clarive concerned about managing data? Well, the answer is rather simple: a great number of applications, be it in-house or closed ERP products, store their configuration in the database. Configuration that affects how the application logic and interface behaves. Usually this means inserting or updating a few rows of data from one environment to the next.
