In this article, I am going to explain how we can enforce the SQL database best practices using Policy-Based Management. The policy-based management feature of SQL Server was introduced in SQL Server 2005. This feature was useful because it helps database administrators to define and enforce the database policies based on the organizations’ requirements.
Back when I was a DBA, I really appreciated Policy-Based Management. Unfortunately, although my job has changed a few times since then, Policy-Based Management hasn’t.
