The way we think about data and databases must adapt to fit with dynamic 'cloud' infrastructure and Continuous Delivery. The need for rapid deployments and feedback from software changes combined with an increase in complexity of modern distributed systems and powerful new tooling are together driving significant changes to the way we design, build, and operate software systems. These changes require new ways of writing code, new team structures, and new ownership models for software systems, all of which in turn have implications for data and databases. In this talk, we will look at the factors driving increased deployability, the pattern of microservices as a way to improve deployability, changes to
data models that microservices bring, and changes to team structures and responsibilities required to make these new approaches effective in a Continuous Delivery context.
