In my opinion we exist only to serve the business. We need to know what people are doing and why in order to match the best solution to their needs.
I never allow a new application to get a foot hold in the databases unless they send me the data on the intended application. Thats means: who asked for it, what is the business need what is the intended solution etc.
We also assign each new application to a member of the dba team who sits in during the design stage and then follow up until the system is in production.
