According to the 2018 State of DevOps Report, database changes are often a major source of risk and delay when performing application deployments. The research team at DevOps Research Assessment (DORA) set out to investigate which database-related practices help when implementing continuous delivery to improve both software delivery performance and availability. Please join Dr. Nicole Forsgren, founder and CEO, DORA and Robert Reeves, co-founder and CTO, Datical to learn more about the survey findings and explore the database practices that were identified as essential to successful software delivery.
