I don’t know about you, but after the pandemic I was really left with a newfound appreciation for attending in-person events and connecting with people in real life. Don’t get me wrong, I love the flexibility that comes with hybrid events, and I attend my fair share of virtual meetups throughout the year, but they never seem to have as much of a lasting impact on me. Shortly after joining the Events team at Redgate in 2023, I was very lucky to be able to attend my first PASS Data Community Summit. There was something very special about seeing the data community come together to connect, share ..read more

Deploying database code using pipelines in various CI/CD tools is a common practice among our customers who use Flyway.

In this article, I’ll demonstrate how to use environments inside your pipeline commands both with and without creating an environments section in the toml configuration file.

You may have heard of test data management (TDM). It’s part of the software delivery process – some would say a crucial part, involving the creation, management, and maintenance of environments for software development and testing. By provisioning fresh, production-like data, it allows developers to test their proposed changes early, thoroughly, and repeatedly with the right test data, when they need it and where they need it. All of which results in robust, reliable database deployments, fewer bugs, and shorter lead times for changes. It’s not new either. As far back as 2016, the definitive ..read more

We recently sat down with James Phillips, CIO at Rev.io, to talk about test data management (TDM) and the growing attention it’s getting from the C-suite. It’s been prompted by the recognition that provisioning test and development environments with realistic production-like data improves the quality of code being developed, reduces errors, and deliver new features to customers faster. But what do development environments look like without test data management in place, what challenges does that present, what are the real quantifiable benefits and, most importantly, how do you introduce it?
