In its ongoing quest to offer clients expert on-the-ground advice as well as software to introduce DevOps to database development, Redgate Software has added the Channel Islands-based Nexus Technology to its worldwide partner roster.
Over the last two years, Redgate has expanded and extended its portfolio of database development software to enable clients to include the database in their DevOps processes.
By integrating with and plugging into the software already in use for applications, the faster development and release of features that DevOps promises can be delivered upon without the database being a bottleneck.
Faster development & releases
At the same time, IT consultancy Nexus has been building a reputation in the Channel Islands for its skills in delivering technology solutions, from software development to project management, particularly in the banking and financial sectors.
Dave Edge, Nexus Co-Founder and CTO commented: “Every company has data, but not all of them know what to do with it and they may be ticking along, unaware of how data can take their business up a gear.
“That’s why the new partnership is good news. It matches our skills in data analytics, forecasting and predicting, with Redgate’s software solutions that make database development faster while keeping data safe.”
Data privacy legislation
New legislation like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as well as increasing customer concerns about data breaches, also mean banks and other financial institutions are seeking ways to protect customer data while still being able to improve the services they offer.
Conversely, perhaps, introducing DevOps to the development of the database as well as applications helps companies to stay compliant with data privacy legislation while streamlining the process.
Laborious tasks are also automated in a reliable, repeatable manner to remove human error from the equation, and an audit trail of what changes were made, who made them, and when they were deployed is provided that can be used to demonstrate compliance.
