Getting Agile with Database Development

Once an organization becomes convinced of the advantagesof agile development, there is no going back. Shorter time to value, lower risk and greater flexibility are among the most frequently cited benefits of the agile mentality.

Although most application developers now consider agile a mainstream approach, database developers — especially those working on relational databases — have been slower to embrace it because of the need to understand and respect the state of a database when deploying changes. Thus, database professionals have had to rely on manual processes that do not scale up to the faster development cycles at the heart of agile.
