Organizations across the globe are being inundated with regulatory requirements. They also have a strong need to better manage their IT systems to ensure they are operating efficiently and staying secure. Microsoft is often asked to provide guidance and technology to assist organizations struggling with compliance. The SQL Server 2008 Compliance Guidance white paper was written to help organizations and individuals understand how to use the features of the Microsoft® SQL Server® 2008 database software to address their compliance needs. This paper serves as an accompaniment to the SQL Server 2008 compliance software development kit (SDK), which provides sample code and guidance for understanding SQL Server 2008 compliance features and using them for developing solutions.
For more information, please refer to the whitepaper Reaching Compliance.
