Overall Satisfaction with Liquibase

We use Liquibase to manage and keep track of our DevOps. We use it to release software by integrating it directly in our CI/CD. It has taken the human factor out of changes and that has decreased our error rate. Currently we are using the open source variant, considering to get a subscription if the next couple of months appear to be valuable.

Pros

  • Track changes
  • Rollback if something went wrong
  • Version control
  • Deployment

Cons

  • learning curve / onboarding
  • price
  • improve ease of configuration
  • team can spend time on other tasks
We use it to maintain and control our database versioning and deploy various staging versions. By automating a lot of database related tasks, we have less problems and our team can focus on other tasks
I have not directly been in touch with customer support
To be honest, the option of having a free community plan to start testing in a test environment, followed by taking it in production a few months is a great way to evaluate wether or not to do the subscription based plan.

Did implementation of Liquibase go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Liquibase again?

Yes

Where Liquibase helped us the most is reducing the human factor. Being the middleware between our team and our DB gives us a layer of protection from errors. We use it to maintain and control our database versioning and deploy various staging versions which are quite complicated to manage manually and has gone wrong for us in the past.

Evaluating Liquibase and Competitors

  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Reputation
we decided to try it after having had an issue with multiple versions gone wrong. this and the open source availability is what made us give it a shot.
in the future i'd request multiple demos, also from competitors to get a better overall idea of what it can help me do and what it should be helping me do.
