When (& Why) You Should Use Change Data Capture

Change Data Capture (CDC) can simplify and improve both your application and data architectures. The trick is to figure out the most effective use cases where employing CDC will have the desired impact.

By no means are these the only two use cases for change data capture, but they are excellent examples for demonstrating the ways that CDC can simplify application and data architecture.
