Czech startup SQLdep is hoping to simplify database changes and troubleshooting with its code analytics tool.
SQLdep’s founders wrote the first line of code about two years ago, and like so many startups the idea for founding the company came from personal experience.
“I was part of the data warehousing team at a bank and had wasted months of my life just doing SQL code analysis. When I got the opportunity, I quit and we started coding,” said Martin Masarik, CEO at SQLdep.
However, there were no hard feelings, since the bank (which Masarik doesn’t want to identify) became SQLdep’s first customer.
SQLdep’s tool automatically analyzes and maps a database’s lineage, which describes how different parts are related and what impact they have on each other. Knowing the data lineage helps prevent problems when changes are made and, if something goes wrong, speeds up the troubleshooting.
