    Session Description

    Larger projects often require deployment in several environments. These environments are typically development, test, and production. Data in each environment may need to be preserved, partially preserved, purged or overwritten. In this session, you’ll watch a slick way of automating the import and configuration of data between project builds, in a safe and reliable fashion. Ensure consistent and efficient upgrades to production deployments. You will see how scripted data imports, system resets and serial updating will eliminate critical errors and tedious, manual importing. You will be given a simple wizard template to implement in your solutions, which will save you lots of time when rolling out upgrades.
