Transcript

Automation is the cornerstone of any good development pipeline. It allows you to manage away repeated tasks that don't drive innovation or create value. Allowing you to create workflows that remove obstacles from your way and save time.  

Where do you want to put your energy, in design or in implementation? Do you want to find yourself hand creating the same kinds of things over and over again?

Automation also finds a key position in your organization when dealing with tasks that can not afford to be affected by the human element. 

Because even the best database administrators can accidentally type in the wrong information, forget passwords, or fail to deploy their cloud resources in the right order or way.  

With all this in mind lets take a few minutes to talk about how to use automation to deploy your AWS databases in a safe and efficient way.
