Presentation Title: Bringing Oracle Database Development Into Your Continuous Integration Processes
Speaker: Mr John Pocknell
Company: Quest
Presentation abstract: With business driving the increasing adoption by IT of agile methodologies such as Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment, the need for agile database tooling has become even more important. In many companies, the database development lifecycle has become the bottleneck in an otherwise agile delivery process. As such, database professionals are under increasing pressure to shorten delivery timelines even further, only increasing the stakes within an already high-stress, risk-averse environment. With little room for error in an environment where downtime can cost millions of pounds, the need for an agile database deployment process that can simultaneously reduce risk and deliver consistently reliable results is more important than ever.

Based on actual customer use cases, this session will cover the following challenges using live product presentations to illustrate an effective solution.
