What is Change Data Capture (CDC)?

Change Data Capture (CDC) is a method of capturing and tracking changes made to a database over time. It involves tracking and recording changes to data as they occur, rather than periodically taking a snapshot of the entire data set. This allows for real-time monitoring of changes, and enables organizations to quickly detect and respond to issues. CDC typically captures the following types of changes: Inserts, updates, deletes and DDL(Data Definition Language) changes.

CDC is commonly used in data warehousing, data replication, and real-time reporting scenarios. It is also used in auditing, disaster recovery and other use cases where it is important to maintain a complete historical record of changes made to a database.
