Database developers: Does it feel as though everyone else gets the productivity benefits and fun from agile development, but not you?
In most organizations, agile is taking hold in application development, operations and even marketing. Meanwhile, database developers observe other teams leveraging scrums, sprints, feedback-driven work and automated unit testing and wonder how they’re supposed to keep up.
I’d like to tell you that the brave, new, agile world for database developers begins as soon as you’ve read this blog post and our new e-book, Getting Agile with Database Development, but that wouldn’t be the whole truth. The fact is that some of the things we like the most about databases simply aren’t amenable to the agile mindset.
Still, automation has a big role to play in bringing database development into parity with application development. Have a look at our new e-book, Getting Agile with Database Development, to start the agile wheels turning on your database team. You’ll find that there are ways to reduce risk and shorten database development cycles so you can catch up with the applications team.
It’s a big step toward making your entire organization more agile.
