Database DevOps for SQL Server - Development


When all changes to a developed SQL code have been made, developers commit them to a shared repository which is further synchronized with the central code base. Then the application or feature is being built from the extracted code and goes through the process of unit testing. Database Continuous Integration is a key to automation of each and every step that follows database development process.

Database DevOps for SQL Server - Continuous Integration

Continuous Integration

Database Continuous Integration is a development practice that implies that each tiny addition to the code is tested each time when the changes are being made. SQL Server Continuous Integration allows detecting and eliminating bugs on early stages of development, which drastically cuts the gap between development, testing, and the release.

Database DevOps for SQL Server - Continuous Delivery

Continuous Delivery

The Database Continuous Delivery practice ensures smooth and frequent releases of updates. With the database release automation, you can always feel certain of each code alteration is releasable. Thus, the database release management becomes less risky and stressful, and at the same time, the frequency of updates boosts drastically. The higher frequency of rolling out updates makes a product more flexible, reliable, and, consequently, more attractive to customers. Even if some issues somehow penetrated into production, they can be easily eliminated with a timely and simple update that won't be a nightmare for developers.

Database DevOps for SQL Server - Operation


Proactive and intelligent SQL Server monitoring and reporting ensures that you can detect, analyze, and eliminate any performance-related issues before they end up in the computers and servers of your customers. As a result, your teams spend less time and efforts, while you get more customers who are happy with the product they can rely on.

dbForge SQL tools take part
in DevOps Automation

Our tools can help you with extending the DevOps approach
to your SQL Server database development and deployment.

SQL Complete

Benefit from a wide range of code completion features that relieve users from memorizing long and complex object names while writing code. The tool allows focusing on high-quality SQL code with fine formatting that is easy to understand and interpret.

Source Control

Version-control schemas and reference data, roll back changes, and maintain the referential integrity of your SQL databases. Source Control can also solve other database challenges, including deployment without data loss.

Schema Compare

Manage diffs between live SQL Server databases, snapshots, script folders, and native backups. The tool can quickly compare your SQL Server databases, analyze differences, and perform error-free schema synchronization using generated SQL scripts.

Unit Test

Develop a stable and reliable code that can be tested regressively at the unit level. Since Unit Test is based on the open-source tSQLt framework, SQL developers can benefit from writing unit tests in a regular T-SQL.

Data Generator

Emulate column-intelligent random data, generating demo data for databases already filled with data, and creating your own custom test data generators. The tools can generate demo data by populating SQL Server tables with millions of rows of sample data that looks just like the real one.

Data Pump

Fill SQL databases with external source data and migrate data between systems. The tool supports import and export from 10+ widely-used data formats (Text, MS Excel, XML, CSV, JSON, etc.), and includes a number of advanced options and templates for recurring scenarios.


Automate the creation of your database documentation and customize your documentation according to your needs. With dbForge database documentation tool you can eliminate tedious and time-consuming manual documentation and satisfy audit requirements by keeping complete documentation.

DevOps benefits for Managers, CIOs, CEOs

Release new features and improvements faster with no bugs

As a rule, managers tend to take care of the product releases and performance most. Working under the DevOps approach discovers the following benefits to managers:

  • Make product delivery faster and less costly
  • Fix bugs as soon as possible
  • Decrease time to bug fixing
  • Improve product quality
  • Better performance of the tool
  • Accelerate operational processes
  • Reduce failure rates of the tool
  • Allocate the lower amount of resources

High-quality product with fewer costs

For CEOs, introducing the DevOps approach to the company mainly focuses on higher revenues and fewer expenses spent on the product. The benefits can be outlined as follows:

  • Produce higher gains from product sales
  • Increase the number of satisfied customers
  • Establish reliable processes between teams
  • Fix bugs and defects faster and more efficiently
  • Make business more agile to modern demands of customers
  • Reduce the number of bugs
  • Maximize product quality
  • Minimize costs on security aspects

Improve staff collaborative relationships

When implementing the DevOps approach into the company, CIOs start thinking about how it can influence the company processes and help attract, hire, and keep from leaving skilled IT professionals. DevOps gives CIOs such benefits as:

  • Build the collaborative workplace environment
  • Ensure a variety of skills and qualifications for staff
  • Make teams more flexible
