Introduction

One of the challenges facing the IT departments of many organizations today is who pays for the operational support of the SQL Server databases that are used by the business? Organizations are continually introducing new applications that assist in improving and streamlining business processes. It was not that long ago that an office looked very similar to a classroom with long rows of desks and on each desk there was an in-tray and also an out-tray. Documents would move along the row of desks from one person's out-tray to another person's in-tray. These manual business processes and workflows have now been replaced with line-of-business applications such as CRM, ERP and HR systems.Which each new application that is adopted there is a corresponding database that also needs to be managed. Hence, IT departments continually have to increase the number of databases that they support without having an easy way to recover the costs associated with this additional management. In other words IT departments are continually being asked to do more with less as a result of their inability to recover the costs associated with database management.
