Organizations are struggling to manage and standardize an ever increasing number of database
deployments. This presentation shows how scripting and automation tools can be used to
provision databases and to manage resources like users, tablespaces, instance parameters and
settings in general. With this setup one can manage a large range of systems from a very small
set of descriptive text based configuration files. Moreso, these configs are easily managed in a
revision control system like git enabling agile workflows for database change management.
