Datical Increases Deployment Speed for Business Critical Applications on Oracle

AUSTIN, Texas – May 31, 2017 – Datical, the leading provider of database release automation solutions, today announced support for Oracle Exadata, the most powerful database platform engineered for fast, reliable performance for the most demanding, business-critical database workloads.

Software is reshaping industries – from healthcare to finance to retail. Given this, the pace of change is accelerating, and organizations must master their applications in order to survive in this digital era. As companies have adopted automation to help increase the pace of software delivery, a new constraint has emerged – the database.

“Oracle Exadata is a robust Database Machine that consolidates and simplifies workloads into one combined unit, a unique combination of hardware and software for optimizing operations and lowering costs,” said Josh Turnbull, senior vice president of business development at Infolob, an Oracle Platinum Partner with deep expertise on Exadata who supported Datical on the testing efforts. “Datical’s solution is well suited for Exadata and brings a long overdue solution to the market that solves a very complex problem.”

Industry analyst firm IDC [1], who interviewed eight organizations using Oracle Exadata Database Machines, projected that these Oracle customers will “realize average annual business benefits worth $157,712 per 100 users, which would result in a five-year ROI of 429 percent.”

With Datical’s support of Oracle Exadata, DevOps teams will be able to increase the velocity of application releases by removing database deployments as a barrier to delivering new applications. The database has become the bottleneck in the overall digital transformation initiatives and has long been the neglected discipline, the weakest link in the tool chain. Most companies – even those using the latest DevOps automation tools – are still anchoring development teams by using decades-old processes to manage and deploy database changes.

“Organizations adopt Oracle Exadata to achieve exceptional database performance and availability for mission-critical applications. This also means that they require a database release automation solution that maximizes their investment by ensuring that database changes can be deployed at the same fast-pace mission critical applications are being updated. For companies adopting agile and DevOps, the ability to deploy database schema and logic changes fast without compromising data integrity and security is everything,” said Pete Pickerill, co-founder and vice president of product strategy, Datical. “We’re excited to bring Datical to a new platform. Organizations that use Oracle Exadata will now be able to modernize their database deployment process, and realize even more benefits– shorter application release times, better data security, and more productive application developers, testers and DBAs.”

The team behind Datical has been pioneering database and application deployment evolution for more than a decade. Datical strategically guides some of the world’s most admired companies through their 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.
