New Tool: ApexSQL Audit Viewer

, 2007-04-11

ApexSQL has announced a new viewer tool for ApexSQL Audit. ApexSQL Audit does a lot of the dirty work of building audit structures for you as a huge time saver. In addition, it provides the trigger scripts for review prior to execution (they are built from templates which you can customize), so that you know exactly what's going in. The tool also gives reporting capability so someone can generate a SQL Server Reporting Services style report of what has been audited or it can export the audit information to an Excel file or a standard text file. However, if you wanted to use the reporting capabilities you had to have the whole tool or develop reporting on your own.

The ApexSQL Audit Viewer gives the reporting capabilities without all the other functionality of ApexSQL Audit. So Audit can stay in the hands of your DBAs and Audit Viewer can go into the hands of management and audit/compliance staff. You can download it here:

This is a first release, but I didn't have any problems with the install. Also, I ran it through some light reporting and didn't encounter any issues. However, if you do encounter any problems, you can always report them in the ApexSQL Audit forum.

Speaking at Community Events - More Thoughts

Last week I posted Speaking at Community Events - Time to Raise the Bar?, a first cut at talking about to what degree we should require experience for speakers at events like SQLSaturday as well as when it might be appropriate to add additional focus/limitations on the presentations that are accepted. I've got a few more thoughts on the topic this week, and I look forward to your comments.
