SSW SQL Auditor
Maintaining consistent quality code across a large team can be a challenge. Even when standards are in place, Developers can make mistakes that will slip through Quality Assurance. SQL Auditor is a part of the range of database tools designed by SSW to help to check best practice standards and optimize SQL Server performance. It was developed to assist in performance tuning in SQL Server 2000 and SQL Server 7.0 by performing a SQL Server audit on your database. It allows Developers to check their database design against common SQL Server design rules and report on the elements that do not conform to those rules.
SSW SQL Auditor not only reports on design issues and areas where SQL performance could be improved, it also has wizards that generate SQL scripts to correct common problems.
If you are looking for a DB Tool that can perform a SQL database audit and assist with SQL Server performance tuning, download a trial of SSW SQL Auditor today.
SQL Server and MSDE
How many times have you deployed an initial version of your SQL Server or MSDE Database application to your clients or departments, then wondered how you are going to make updates to the Database schema in the future without hassle?
SQL Deploy solves this problem by automatically performing Database updates as a part of your application deployment. When you distribute a new version of your application to your clients using SQL Deploy, it automatically applies any pending SQL scripts and Database updates.
It is common practice to save Database schema changes as SQL script files to apply at a later stage. SQL Deploy works with this practice by applying all of the scripts in a directory and adding versioning information to the Database after it applies the SQL scripts.
SQL Deploy can be used directly via its user interface or called from your application. It can be used with SQL Server, MSDE, .NET Windows Forms, ASP.NET Web pages, ASP, Access applications and more.
You can use trickle down deployment for front end, now you can use SQL Deploy for the backend.
SQL Deploy means you never have to worry about your Clients data when deploying applications again!
