Finding a GUID needle in a pile of database haystacks

Our client was providing consulting and training services as well as custom integration for a poorly-documented database application, which used GUIDs to map nearly every data type.

"Trying to find relationships between tables was a monumental task," according to Christopher Shipley, one of the company's principal officers. We provided them with a query tool to locate all tables and columns with a specific GUID, thus helping to map out the data relationships. This application saved countless hours of manually sifting and searching through the database to look for the proverbial needle in the haystack.
