Read a case study about a shared services group at a Fortune 50 financial institution, where the DBA team ended up spending 70% of its time manually deploying database changes. By introducing database release automation with Liquibase, they saw marked improvement:

  • Reduced the Database team’s workload by 80%
  • Cut annual operating expenses by more than $7 million
  • Reduced their SLA for database deployments with QA/Test by 95%
  • Created an automated database deployment pipeline to increase productivity and reduce operating expenses for new applications
