Compliant Database DevOps and the role of DevSecOps DevOps is becoming the new normal in application development, and DevSecOps is now entering the picture. By balancing the desire to release code faster with the need for the same code to be secure, it addresses increasing demands for data privacy. But what about the database? How can databases be included in both DevOps and DevSecOps? What additional measures should be considered to achieve truly compliant database DevOps? This whitepaper provides a valuable insight.

This week’s short code snippet shows how to list all the user table objects in a SQL Server Compact database file. Notice that a SQL Server Compact database can also contain a number of system tables, these can be created by the Merge Replication/RDA/Sync Framework APIs.
