Seamless database version control
SQL Source Control makes database version control seamless. It links your databases to your existing source control system straight from SQL Server Management Studio, so you can source control databases without disrupting your workflow.
Use your preferred development model
It doesn't matter whether your development team works with a central database or individual, local copies – SQL Source Control supports both development models. Just pick the one you work with and carry on as normal.
Track and share changes
You can keep track of who changed what, when, and why, improve change management and auditing, and easily share or revert changes.
SQL Source Control also stores a complete history of your updates to simplify database versioning, and provides a sandbox for risk–free experimenting.
Repeatable, accurate deployments
SQL Source Control can also be combined with SQL Compare to rationalize your deployment process, making deployments repeatable and accurate without any loss of visibility or control over the change process.
