      Presentation Overview

      Topic: Database Change Management and Compliance Made Easy with DB Maestro

      Presenter: Dan Davis

      Abstract: Software Configuration Management (SCM) tools were developed in the mid 1980's to provide a process for software development and maintenance, automatically provide a complete audit trail of changes during an application's life cycle and minimize risk during the development and change processes. As database technology developed and the database became a more integral part of delivering application functionality, these tools were not extended to provide the same value to the database developers and administrators. Various software tools, under the general label of `Compare and Sync' were developed to help the database specialist cope with their change processes. With the advent of various compliance requirements on the change process, this void of complete SCM functionality became more apparent. The presentation to the Central Alabama OUG will review this area from a functional and value standpoint and introduce a new generation of database change technology that fills this need.
