“If you want speed, you need automation. If you want deployments, you need automation. If you want basic security, you need automation. If you are building a nuclear reactor, and need surety, you still need automation. Automation accelerates multiple practices. Simply management theory demands if you can automate and remove lower-level costs to add higher-level solutions, you do so.”
Manual work is largely replaced with automated processes driven by open-source DevOps tools designed specifically for database work. This not only frees up a great amount of time but also makes the results more reliable, as there is less room for human error.
As is often the case with popular ways of doing things, both Agile and DevOps are often treated as buzzwords, typically by organizations that want to enjoy the benefits but do not understand what either approach entails, let alone whether they would make suitable choices.

In short, a version control system will store the date and times changes were made, in addition to previous versions of a project and a record of the environment, tools, and team members that were present at different stages. Anything needed to recreate or refer back to previous versions will be present, along with collaborative tools to let team members explain their work (such as annotations).
