Proactive Action

The first and most important step in PLM involves in the proactive initiation of action.  In upcoming chapters, each of the activities that make up this step will be covered in detail; however, this phase can be boiled down into three key tasks:

  • Creating winning physical database designs.

  • Stress testing database designs and accompanying system components.  According to information compiled by Gartner group, only 10% of IT professionals are actively performance testing their database servers prior to the first day of production.

  • Instituting change control to protect proven physical designs and configuration settings. 

  • Success in these three endeavors can lead to great performing SQL Server systems.  Conversely, failure to carry these activities out can yield a ticket to disaster.
