The very nature of a database system is to be dynamic, rarely static. The applications that use databases tend to change, thus requiring changes within the associated databases. The totality of pieces and parts that comprise this “change” will be combined into a “release” that will be applied to the system. Controlling this change is not rocket science, but it is not without its complexities. In this chapter, we will discuss various terms, processes, and ideas, and suggest tools to assist you in performing this necessary function, while minimizing risk, and impacting your system in a graceful fashion.
