Chapter 3 - Review Meetings

Oracle Database Design Review Meetings

The intent of this chapter is to help administrators design and standardize on a formalized design review process.  The goal of the design review process is to identify and address application design, process flow, program logic and SQL statement problems early in the development lifecycle.   Identifying these issues early in the development lifecycle allows them to be more easily addressed than if they were to be identified during later stages.

The database administration team should invite representatives from the development and business units to assist in the creation (and enforcement) of the standardized review process.   Application development teams will be able to help tailor the design review process to satisfy their specific design and implementation needs.  Business users who will be impacted by the production turnover will provide valuable input on implementing new applications for their specific business areas.  Customized checklists are created to ensure that all application and business specific issues are addressed during each meeting of the design review process. 

It is recommended that the database administration team then communicate to all application development and business areas that any internal applications created without following the standardized review process will not be migrated to production.   Having the application teams and business units participate during the creation of the standardized review process allows the DBA team to enforce the policy without being viewed as dictatorial or making rules in a vacuum.  In addition, every effort should be made to “sell” the standardized design review process in all communications to application development teams and business units.
