TitleBuilding an automated database deployment pipeline BioAlex Yates has worked with database change management tools for four years, collaborating closely with users and dev teams along the way. As a pre-sales engineer, he gets to see a huge variety of server and dev environments, and helps folks solve their database development and delivery problems in whatever way works well for them. Ever the sharer, he also blogs about the lessons he learns: http://www.workingwithdevs.com AbstractThe pace of business accelerates fairly continuously and application development moves right with it. But we’re still trying to deploy databases the same way we did 10 years ago. This session addresses the need for changes in organizational structure, process and technology necessary to arrive at a nimble, fast, automatable and continuous database deployment process. We’ll use actual customer case studies to illustrate both the common methods and the unique context that led to a continuous delivery process that is best described as a pipeline. You will learn how to customize common practices and tool sets to build a database deployment pipeline unique to your environment in order to speed your own database delivery while still protecting your organization’s most valuable asset, it’s data.
SponsorFarm Credit Services of America, based in Omaha, Nebraska, is dedicated to serving the agricultural credit, risk management and financial needs of farmers and ranchers in Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming.
We are a part of the Farm Credit System, a nationwide agricultural network providing credit and affiliated services to farm and ranch operators across the United States. Overall, the Farm Credit System supplies the nation's agricultural industry with nearly one-third of its credit needs. For more information on the Farm Credit System and other Farm Credit Associations visit www.farmcredit.com.
When we were established: Farm Credit Services of America is part of the Farm Credit System, a $248-billion nationwide network of lending institutions, chartered in 1917.
How we operate: The Association operates on a cooperative basis. Farm Credit Services of America is owned by its more than 50,000 stockholders/customers and is governed by a 17-member board of directors. The customer-owners of the Association elect 14 directors — three directors are appointed by the board.  
Where we get funds: Unlike commercial banks, Farm Credit institutions do not take deposits. Instead, money is raised by selling system-wide bonds on Wall Street. The proceeds are then channeled through Farm Credit banks and Associations to agricultural producers and cooperatives. Because of the market acceptance and attractiveness of Farm Credit securities and the volume of funds raised, Farm Credit Services of America is able to offer competitive interest rates and unlimited amounts of capital to the agricultural sector.
Where we are located: Farm Credit Services of America has a network of 42 retail offices within Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wyoming. The corporate headquarters is located at 5015 South 118th Street, Omaha, Nebraska, 68137.
