DBSignOff is an evolution in the database change management process. It is the intent of the engineering team at Logic for Data to create software to simplify database development and maintenance. This tool will hopefully bring this goal closer to realization by enhancing the process by which database modifications are handled. We will explain how this is a methodology that the DBSignOff tool enforces and also automates.
Source control tools are vital in keeping track of source code changes. Generally however, standard source control principles cannot be applied to database changes. Source code is a stateless representation of objects in the form of classes. Only the latest version of a class matters when compiling the code, i.e. it will either compile or it will not. Once it's in a working state the compiler doesn't care how the latest version of the code came to be, nor does the target environment where the compiled code will be deployed.
