Datical Brings Continuous Delivery with Jenkins to the Database

New application developer friendly plug-in makes it easy to take advantage of Datical DB's database release automation capabilities directly from Jenkins

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 30, 2017) - JENKINS WORLD - Datical, the leading provider of database release automation solutions, today announced integration with Jenkins 2.6 at Jenkins World, the annual gathering of DevOps practitioners using open source Jenkins.

"Today's database deployment processes are painfully slow, risky, error-prone and can take days to complete. With the combination of Datical and Jenkins, application development teams can now manage database releases in the same way they manage application releases," said Pete Pickerill, co-founder and vice president of product strategy at Datical. "This means database deployments can be transformed and automated into a simple, repeatable process completed in a few minutes."

With over a hundred thousand users worldwide, the Jenkins community and open source users can now reap the benefits of bringing DevOps to the database and round out their CI/CD capabilities to meet the demands of the digital enterprise. This technology combination provides application developers with easy self-service access to database release automation functionality from within the Jenkins automated build platform.

Datical DB is the only database release automation platform that allows developers to check-in database change scripts to source control, along side application changes, and automatically kick off a fully automated build and validation process using existing application build and deploy tools like Jenkins, to complete the process quickly and safely. Jenkins is the leading open source automation server that enables developers around the world to build, test and deploy software.

"A common challenge I see from Jenkins users transitioning to continuous delivery is 'what do I do about the database?' It's great to see Datical integrating their technology with Jenkins Pipeline to give Jenkins users the tools to solve one of the harder problems in continuous delivery," said Kohsuke Kawaguchi, Jenkins founder and CTO at CloudBees.

In addition to Jenkins, Datical works with the most popular DevOps tools and has a library of plug-ins that enable database continuous delivery through integration with other ARA solutions such as Atlassian Bamboo, CloudBees (via the Jenkins plugin), IBM UrbanCode Deploy, Microsoft Team Foundation Server, Puppet and XebiaLabs XL Deploy.

The Datical team has been pioneering database and application deployment evolution for more than a decade. The company strategically guides some of the world's most admired companies through their digital transformation and database deployment modernization efforts. The Datical database release automation solution is designed to break the application release logjam created by today's manual database deployment processes. Datical improves productivity and performance, allowing development, test and DBA staff to focus on more important projects and initiatives.
