Perforce and Red Gate Announce New Integration

May 24, 2011—Perforce Software has announced a new integration with SQL Source Control, the popular tool from Red Gate Software for controlling SQL database schema and data from within SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS). For the first time, developers can apply the full power of Perforce’s version control capabilities within the SQL database application development environment.

"Now database developers will have access to the same powerful version control tools available to software developers," said Randy DeFauw, technical marketing manager for Perforce Software. "With this integration developers can quickly and easily view the evolution of database objects. In addition, once under version control, database assets can be fully integrated into modern development processes including continuous integration and issue tracking.”

“Database development has always fallen behind application development in terms of source control,” said Michael Francis, Red Gate Software. “With SQL Source Control, you can easily connect your existing source control system, including Perforce, to SQL Server and bring all the benefits of working in a source controlled environment to database development. With an audit trail of who changed what, when and why, database administrators will also be assured of quality before pushing changes up the development chain.”

Download and evaluate Perforce free from the Perforce website. This offer includes free technical support during evaluation. Visit the Red Gate website for a free 28-day fully functional trial and use a new evaluation repository to start source controlling your SQL Server in less than five minutes.
