Version control may be the first step to continuous delivery

Version control may be the first step to continuous delivery

Date: Sep 12, 2013

At Agile 2013, James Denman interviewed David Pond, a software engineer for Red Gate, to find out what new tools they have for enterprises that aspire to continuous integration. Pond said one of the components that organizations are frequently lacking is a solid version-control system for their databases.

According to Pond, Red Gate believes continuous delivery in the database is really important for continuous development of applications and that the process starts with version control. Backups and upgrade scripts just don't seem to be enough anymore. Red Gate's tools, according to Pond, allow developers to build applications and their databases in parallel and still deploy them together in a unified automated build process.
