ApexSQL Log vs. SQL Server Change Data Capture (CDC)

Common SQL Server database auditing goals include the ability to

  • achieve compliance regulatory standards,
  • perform data flow checkups, complete internal/external investigations of who changed what,
  • perform post-disaster analysis when data is unintentionally changed and to discover why did it occur, when, etc.
  • maintain history of data changes (before-after auditing)

ApexSQL Log gets non-profit robotics team back in the game

We are proud of providing help to our friends from the FIRST Robotics team (www.firstinspires.org)

These guys were at the competition against 35+ other teams. The goal of the game was to get through the defenses in front of the robots and take over the castle by getting enough boulders (grey balls) into the holes. The kids had to design/CAD their robots from scratch (that’s why they all look so different), then program them in Java, etc.  Also, they were writing software that tracks all the robots and how they do during each match in great detail.
