Abstract

Though the concept of sharing good practices regarding database development is not new, many organizations lack an effective sharing mechanism. A typical problem occurs when a work assignment is concluded without properly gathering and storing good practices. Good practices that have been identified during development work may be lost or become inaccessible for future use. Ideally, there is an organizational process whereby good practices are gathered, stored, and disseminated. This may include organizational meetings where good practices are shared among personnel. It may also require a final report that gathers learning experiences from developers that are made available for future reference. The overall goal is to disseminate good practices in order to promote “what works” in terms of fewer defects, improved performance, and enhanced functionality, among others.
