Effectively managing SQL Server databases requires administrators to adopt tried and true best practices, while also leveraging automation and proven tools.
SQL Server database management encompasses numerous skill sets that administrators can't afford to ignore. However, administrators are quickly discovering that mastering those skill sets is becoming more complex, especially in cases where multiple servers, databases, and SQL Server versions are involved. That complexity is making chores that were once straightforward and simple much more difficult to accomplish.
Take, for example, the basic process of comparing and synchronizing databases to address changes in schemas and data–something that was relatively easily accomplished in the past in single server environments. However, once you add multiple servers, different versions, and extensive schema changes to the mix, what was once simple becomes far too complex and time-consuming to execute using scripts and bundled tools. The answer to that dilemma lies with tools that bring automation to administrators striving to effectively manage the lifecycle of a SQL Server database.
