DBmaestro's TeamWork Pushes DevOps Into Microsoft SQL Server Shops
The company's database change management product brings DevOps to SQL Server environments, putting a huge chunk of the database market within its reach.DevOps is hot, and now one company is bringing the collaborative, agile development strategy to organizations with SQL database server deployments. DBmaestro, a DevOps software specialist, has launched a version of its TeamWork product for Microsoft SQL Server, enabling the company to address 65 percent of the database market. DBmaestro TeamWork is already available for Oracle. A mash-up of software development (Dev) and operations (Ops), the term "DevOps" describes a methodology that promotes communication and collaboration between software developers and IT professionals, uniting both camps under integrated processes. The aim is to produce better, revenue-enhancing software at an agile pace while avoiding turf wars, which have a habit of erupting at IT organizations. DevOps is gaining in popularity as enterprises embrace the rapid pace of software innovation that has come to characterize the cloud computing era. Last week, during its Build developer conference, Microsoft launched a new Azure portal preview that provides a cloud-enabled DevOps experience for developers. "Developing for a mobile-first, cloud-first world is complicated, and Microsoft is working to simplify this world without sacrificing speed, choice, cost or quality," stated the company's new Cloud and Enterprise chief, Scott Guthrie.
DBmaestro is hoping to bring some of those same benefits to SQL Server shops.
