ROI Calculator

While many think of DevOps as an unstoppable force in the modern IT landscape, more often than not, it stops at the database. Smart actors are examining this issue in search of a competitive advantage. So, is the erstwhile absence of DevOps in the database simply an oversight or is database administration somehow immune to the charms (that is, the benefits) of DevOps?

Rather than trying to answer that question based on abstractions and generalities, this page was built to tackle the question head-on and in a tailored fashion, examining the topic as it uniquely relates to you and your company. Please input as much information as you can as accurately as you can in the fields below. This information will be paired with industry norms to calculate an estimate for your expected database DevOps ROI.
