Datical 5 Released
May 03, 2018

Datical announced the general availability of Datical 5, its enterprise-class platform for automating database releases to deliver efficiency, speed and risk reduction for database deployments.

Unveiled through a beta program in early February, Datical 5 speeds software deployment by providing a central command center to achieve a unified pipeline for application and database changes, freeing up time for development, test and database administration teams to create and deliver better application experiences — faster. With Datical 5, Developers are empowered to continuously manage and rework database code changes, allowing for seamless and efficient collaboration across the DevOps pipeline.

New Datical 5 capabilities:

- SSIS Support: Datical has new capabilities to support Microsoft SSIS, one of the industry’s most popular ETL solutions. Specifically, Datical 5 can version SSIS packages and orchestrate when SSIS jobs are performed alongside schema changes. With these capabilities, organizations can effectively manage database releases and simultaneously coordinate ETL workloads to ensure that no data is lost in deliberating important business decisions or in meeting audit and compliance requirements.

- Integration with Development Automation Tools: Datical plugins for XebiaLabs’s XL Deploy and IBM’s UrbanCode Deploy have been updated so that teams relying on Datical 5 and either of these deployment automation solutions can immediately bring the database into view as they orchestrate software releases.

“As enterprises continue to look for new ways to solve deployment challenges and modernize automation, Datical is at the forefront, empowering development teams with the tools needed to streamline the entire software development lifecycle,” said Pete Pickerill, co-founder and VP of Product Strategy, Datical. “Our new capabilities make it easy for application teams to focus on what is most important — the data.”
Availability

Datical 5 is now generally available.
