Survey Reveals that the Database can be a Roadblock for Continuous Integration
BOSTON, MA, May 16, 2018 – DBmaestro, the pioneer and leading database DevOps solution provider announced today that it has expanded its database automation platform to enable CI/CD (continuous integration/ continuous development) through version control and release automation for Microsoft SQL. Now DBmaestro’s database automation platform speeds up release delivery, improves productivity, minimizes errors, and increases security for SQL and ORACLE databases.
DBmaestro’s database automation platform is designed to enable database changes to be made quickly, easily and with confidence enabling successful end-to-end CI/CD. Many enterprises worldwide struggle with bringing their databases into their agile work processes.

“Many enterprises invest in DevOps tools for app development and testing, only to find that the database is inflexible and holding them back,” said Yaniv Yehuda, CTO at DBmaestro. “DBmaestro is the DevOps platform that provides databases with both agility and security, enabling IT to streamline releases faster and more frequently while managing risk. DBmaestro helps databases keep pace with business change.”
