What will you learn at the Redgate Summit: The Future of Database DevOps?

Join us this February for our Redgate Summit: The Future of Database DevOps, where you’ll discover the latest trends in DevOps, brand new insights from the 2021 State of Database DevOps report, an introduction and technical demos of Redgate’s solutions for database DevOps, and more.

Who is it for?

Redgate Summit is designed to bring together like-minded IT leaders and database professionals from across the SQL Server and Oracle space. You’ll be in great (virtual) company to learn from and engage with industry and community experts, Redgate customers and product teams.

Why should you attend?

As Microsoft Data Platform MVP and Redgate DevOps Advocate Grant Fritchey puts it: 2021 is a big year for database DevOps. To back this up, we’ll be sharing the brand new data from the 2021 State of Database DevOps report around DevOps adoption and performance, database technology trends, and the impact of COVID. Pramod Sadalage, Director at ThoughtWorks, and Redgate’s Chief Product Office Jakub Lamik will also look at trends, developments and roadmaps in their sessions.

To predict the future, we need to understand the past. These sessions will not only reveal the latest trends from our industry-leading research on database DevOps, but will also explore how the pandemic has impacted DevOps. And for a discussion on why the database is key for an IT transformation, we’re joined by the amazing Kellyn Pot’Vin-Gorman, Samir Behara, John Martin and Kamil Nowinski.

But that’s not all. Carlos Robles and Kendra Little will show you two database DevOps solutions in action that suit every development team and software organization. And finally, we‘re giving you the chance to ask our experts Grant Fritchey, Kathi Kellenberger and Steve Jones your top database DevOps questions.

Sounds too good to be true? Don’t take my word for it! Our speakers are thrilled to be sharing their experience and knowledge with you – here’s what they have to say:

I’m so jazzed about the data in the new State of Database DevOps survey results that I’m ready to pop.
Grant Fritchey, Microsoft Data Platform MVP and Redgate Advocate

I’m looking forward to helping people understand the mistakes and mis-steps I have taken over the course of my journey to adopting DevOps culture and working practices. If they can learn from my mistakes before they make them, then that would be great.
John Martin, Consultant

The number one question I hear is: ‘As a DBA, how do I get started with DevOps?’ Let’s get to that in the panel session.
Kathi Kellenberger, Data Platform MVP and Simple Talk Editor

My top tip for implementing database release automation? Include the data and objects in the database as part of the deployment. When releasing, if something goes wrong, there is a simpler way back than restoring a database/objects or having to figure out what was touched as part of the release inside the database.
Kellyn Pot’Vin-Gorman, Senior Cloud Solution Architect, Microsoft
