SQL Server is a complex system that involves many different types of objects and requires almost daily changes to server configurations, security, databases, etc. It’s very hard to keep track of changes and enforce fine-grained delegation rules for environments managed by multiple DBAs and operators. A hot topic today is compliance with government and industry regulations, which adds challenges to all types of IT infrastructures-especially SQL databases that store business-critical data and that support business applications.
