  • the tables in which the data resides
  • the server IP address
  • the database names
  • user id's
  • the business rules
  • the history of their applications
  • why things were done a certain way
  • the gotchas
  • the exceptions

    • staging
    • edw
    • domain server
    • SharePoint server
