Dynamic Rules Engine

Ensure database standards and compliance requirements are being met with the database rules engine.

Across the enterprise, database standards and compliance requirements such as naming conventions, data type usage, index configuration and privilege management need to be enforced for every change in every change script. Datical’s Dynamic Rules Engine ensures proposed database code changes are safe and in compliance with your organization’s database standards before they are deployed.

Automatically Enforce DBA Rules Across All Proposed Database Changes.

The database rules engine automatically inspects Datical’s virtual database model to make sure that proposed database code changes are safe and in compliance with your organization’s database standards. The dynamic rules engine checks SQL code and makes it easy to identify complex changes that warrant further review. Database administrators are empowered to efficiently focus only on the changes that require their attention, creating more time to work on other important tasks.

Provide Application Developers with Instant Feedback on Database Code.

Relying on DBAs to manually review and execute SQL scripts created by application developers introduces costly delays in a software delivery lifecycle. The dynamic rules engine enables application developers with a self-service validation capability that uses the same automated build process established for the application. Instant feedback is delivered to developers on changes that violate rules, while database changes that pass the rigorous checking performed by the dynamic rules engine are propagated to the target environment immediately. With instant feedback database deployments are no longer the bottleneck.

Help Application Developers Write Better Database Code.

When it comes to approving database changes and database change management, every DBA is a little different. Two DBAs will often make different decisions during the approval process based on their previous experience, understanding of their organization’s database standards or the time they have to process the request. The inconsistent nature of the review process leaves application developers unsure of what constitutes an acceptable change leading them to make avoidable mistakes over and over again. The consistent evaluation provided by the dynamic rules engine removes uncertainty about what is acceptable and empowers application developers to write safe, compliant changes every time.
