Reliably deploying changes to SQL code is one of the hardest things to get right in the development life cycle and things can easily get messed up.
We’re here to make sure that they don’t.
You could be the best coder in the world but getting your stuff out there and working is only as good as the weakest link in the chain
- if that's your SQL change management process then we can help.

"You guys have a great product. Over the last 3 or 4 years all I have done is made a few little tweaks to our project which synchronized databases all over the world. Nothing more. It just works great."
"We evaluated DB Ghost internally. We use it to package up the sql schema which is stored in version control and maintained by the programmers. For our current workflow this is sufficient and perfect for our needs. In fact our build server is powered by FinalBuilder7 and the Packager Plus command line integrated really nicely into it.
The Packager Plus product is quite simply amazing and solving a lot of our “upgrade script hell” issues and feedback from our technical consultants who helped us trial it (running the installer) over the last month has been universally positive. ? Our software is currently being moved from Ansi to Unicode and to upgrade the database schema from VARCHAR to NVARCHAR we had a manual process in place which took about a day to complete on the client’s site and always ended up with some issues at the end such as missing constraints. With DB Ghost Packager Plus the client runs the installer and 5 minutes later everything is working!

"Thanks – that helps out a bunch. You guys have the best Support I have ever seen in my 23 years in IT - Regards"

"It seems you're one of the few companies that really "get it" with version controlling databases (not just the lame compare schema/data and sync graphical tools). I'll be sure to recommend you in any SQL Server projects I come across.
The DB Ghost Process
How the DB Ghost Process can save your business time and money.
Let me take you on a short journey to where I believe we can get you.
Developers making changes to files within source control, never having to worry about anything outside of their desktop.
Build processes taking all the source code, creating baseline versions and verifying that the code is sound.
Deploying those known versions to test or UAT where bugs can be raised against them.
Back to developers to fix those bugs.
Developers being able to quickly get the exact code base the testers were using and re-creating the bugs.
Now it’s easy to fix the bugs within the files, test against the latest code and check in.
Finally, when the green light is given – a baseline of code is delivered to the live systems and
everyone knows exactly what is in the system because anyone can get the exact same code base from source control.
And the process can repeat again, and again and again and no matter how much time has moved anyone can get any
version of the software at any time with a full audit trail.
Sound familiar? Maybe, but probably not for SQL code.
We aim to change that and make SQL code control easy, intuitive and fast. From developer through to live...
...in the words of one of our customers – “it just works”
Mark Baekdal – CEO and co-founder of Innovartis.
We help developers to:
- Leverage their source control for all their SQL code
- Bring SQL code into their repeatable build process
- Deliver SQL code to all the other parts of the software development life cycle
- Create a framework that is repeatable, fully auditable and robust
- Avoid wasting time using visual database comparison and synch tools
