North Dakota Entrusts Datical With Aiding In Deployment Of Vital Human Services Application
Automating Database Changes Streamlines Rollout of New Application for Citizens
Austin, Texas – October 15, 2015 – Datical, the leading provider of agile database automation solutions, today announced that the State of North Dakota is using Datical DB to help ensure the successful rollout of a new Department of Human Services (DHS) application. The integrated application system, used to determine eligibility for critical core programs such as Medicare, children’s health insurance, assistance for needy families, nutrition assistance and the Child Care Assistance Program (CCAP), has been modernized to drive service and cost efficiencies for the State and quickly meet the ongoing needs of its citizens.
Today’s tech-savvy consumers have high expectations for simple, functioning apps and services, regardless of whether they are coming from a government organization or any other type of business. With Datical’s support, the North Dakota IT team has been able to overcome database deployment obstacles often associated with the application release process and quickly get the application in the hands of the people whose lives it impacts daily.
“We have adopted agile methods and tools to quickly develop and test this robust application for our users, but that doesn’t mean anything if it all breaks down when we get to the deployment part of the process,” said Gary Lipp, database manager for the State of North Dakota IT Department. “Thanks to the guidance and recommendation from our advisors at Deloitte, with Datical on board, we can make sure to get the app across the finish line without any setbacks or errors that could adversely affect those citizens in need of DHS’ programs.”
“A critical part of launching any application is the update and deployment of database changes across complex sets of data environments,” said Dean Yeck, vice president of sales for Datical. “This has historically been an error-laden, laborious and time intensive process. With Datical automating the last mile of application release, North Dakota can launch the new DHS app to its constituents faster and without worrying about loss of data, overlooked security gaps and other common issues.”
In addition to supporting North Dakota’s current initiative, Datical automates database management for many agile enterprise organizations, including Wells Fargo, eBay Enterprise, Fidelity, GE Transportation and McKesson.
