Datical Integrates with CA/Automic Release Automation
June 05, 2017

Datical announced integration with CA’s Automic Application Release Automation (ARA) solution.

The new plug-in allows users easy access to Datical’s database release automation functionality directly from the Automic cloud-enabled automation and orchestration engine.

With the combined power of Datical and Automic, organizations can achieve non-stop, fully automated deployment of both application updates and database changes, supporting continuous delivery and DevOps initiatives. This translates in the ability to deliver innovative, error-free application experiences faster and safer by breaking the application release logjam created by today’s manual database deployment processes.

To meet the need for accelerated release cycles in today’s digital world, companies are modernizing their application release automation capabilities. Movements such as Agile, DevOps, and CI/CD have brought major innovation in application development and deployment. However, practices around database releases have not made the same evolutionary advance.

Datical helps ARA tools deliver on the promises of automation by removing the heavily manual database change management and deployment processes that have slowed software delivery and taxed already overworked database administrators.

Datical automates the process of packaging, validating and deploying database changes in support of application delivery by employing a model-driven approach that treats database code like application code during the release cycle.

In addition to the new Automic Release Automation plug-in, Datical enables database continuous delivery through integration with other ARA solutions such as Jenkins, IBM UrbanCode Deploy and XebiaLabs XL Deploy.

“By offering integration with the Automic’s release automation capabilities, Datical continues to advance its strategy to make database code deployment as fast and easy as application release automation while eliminating risks that cause application downtime and data security vulnerabilities,” said Pete Pickerill, co-founder and VP of Product Strategy at Datical.

The push to make banking products digitally ready (and very quickly) has spurred the old “buy vs. build” debate in bank IT departments: Should we build our own software from scratch in-house? Or do we buy off-the-shelf solutions from third-parties? And while this dichotomy may have been a suitable mentality years ago at the start of the digital transformation revolution in banking, it simply no longer fits with the reality of today's more complex development landscape ...

What to automate? Which parts of the delivery process are good candidates? Which applications will benefit from automation? At first, those sound like silly questions. Automate all your repetitive processes. If you think that you'll do the same thing manually more than once, automate it. Why would you waste your creative potential and knowledge by doing things that are much better done by scripts? Yet, an average company does not adhere to that logic. Why is that? ...
