Issue 4

The database DevOps magazine from Redgate Software explores the new world of compliant Database DevOps, and how to protect against data breaches without turning the database into a deployment bottleneck.

Welcome to the new world of compliant database DevOps

The temptation to include the database in DevOps has been around for a while now, as have the tools that enable it to happen. In a way, it was inevitable. The faster speed of delivery and automation which DevOps encourages streamlines processes, reduces errors, and gets new and better features into the hands of users faster. Exclude the database from the conversation and it acts as a counterweight to the advantages that can otherwise be gained.

Balanced against the appeal of integrating application and database development into the same workflow, however, is the requirement to keep data safe. Particularly at a time when the privacy of personal data and the damage that data breaches can cause is in the news on a weekly, if not daily, basis.

Step in compliant database DevOps. A way of safely including the database in DevOps by matching the desire to deliver software faster with the requirement to protect data and preserve privacy. It gives developers the freedom to keep on developing in the most productive way. It makes sure operations remain in control with review steps included in the process. And perhaps most importantly, it reassures IT management that compliance with legislation is a natural and demonstrable part of the workflow.
