Datical Wraps Up 2017 with Record Customer Growth, Product Innovation and Partner Expansion

Leader in Database Release Automation Continues Dramatic Growth

AUSTIN, Texas – Jan. 18, 2018Datical, the leading provider of database release automation solutions, announced it closed 2017 with tremendous growth, nearly doubling annual subscriptions to its flagship product – Datical DB, and increasing customer growth by 30 percent. Datical continued to see large enterprises rollout Datical DB to help accelerate their digital transformation and DevOps initiatives.  

According to Forrester’s Principal Analyst Robert Stroud in a recent blog[1], 2017 was projected to be the year of DevOps. Forrester states that “with our data confirming that 50% of organizations are implementing DevOps, DevOps has reached ‘Escape Velocity.’”

While organizations have realized the benefits of deploying DevOps across their enterprise and begin to embrace automation in an effort to accelerate the pace of software delivery, a large hurdle still remains – bringing data into the continuous delivery process. This past year, Datical helped its customers remove this barrier via expanding its support for new database platforms, releasing new features that foster communication and collaboration across applications teams and building a DevOps ecosystem through the Datical Partner Program.

“We are excited to announce another year of phenomenal growth for Datical.” said Derek Hutson, CEO of Datical. “As we start 2018, we will continue delivering innovation to our customers to help them increase the velocity of software releases by removing the barrier of the database. As our customers continue pursuing digital transformation, migration to the cloud and DevOps, we will ensure their database release process is fast, safe and secure.
