DataOps is a strategy for managing the increased complexity of modern data estates, but training, education, and tooling are cited as the primary barriers to successful DataOps implementation, according to The SolarWinds Query Report 2021: Database Priorities and Pitfalls. Database Mapper and Task Factoryare designed to help data pros master their data environments, streamline data warehouse management, and develop and run data-centric apps in the cloud, enabling organizations to reap the benefits of DataOps.

“To remain competitive, increase market share, and drive growth, enterprises must ensure they’re extracting sufficient value from data. This includes receiving insights faster, improving data integrity and resilience, implementing automation, and reducing human error—all while juggling data privacy regulations,” said Rohini Kasturi, chief product officer, SolarWinds. “However, without the right tools and processes, managing large, diverse database environments can be laborious and time-consuming. With Database Mapper and Task Factory, SolarWinds delivers powerful, easy-to-use solutions for implementing successful DataOps strategies so organizations can maximize the value of their data and cloud migrations faster and more efficiently.”

SolarWinds Database Mapper

SolarWinds Database Mapper simplifies DataOps implementation by providing a one-stop shop for data teams to easily maintain current documentation and visually track data dependencies and comparisons across the environment, streamlining business-critical data projects. The latest release of Database Mapper includes support for Oracle®, MySQL®, and PostgreSQL® databases, increasing the tool’s platform coverage.

Available as an on-premises and software as a service (SaaS) solution, Database Mapper enables data teams to do the following:

  • Automate Database Documentation: Automatically document Microsoft® SQL Server® and other data sources, including Salesforce®; generate metadata snapshots to compare over time; and create searchable data dictionaries with custom annotation and personal identifiable information (PII) tagging to help manage metadata, including adding business definitions and key data attributes
  • Analyze Data Lineage: Visually analyze how data moves through an environment to help ensure data integrity and demonstrate compliance with data regulations, set relevant alerts specific to their environment with Advisory Conditions, and predict future database storage needs with Storage Forecasting
  • Understand Dependencies Across SQL Server: Map the applications, users, clients, and processes connected to servers in their SQL Server environment, filter object types in a lineage graph, and analyze data lineage at the server level

SolarWinds Database Mapper preinstalled software is available in the Azure® Marketplace, making it easier for new users to try the solution.
