I've been looking into DML solutions lately but have really struggled to find any off the shelf products that could manage a DML.

Has anyone had any experiences with creating DMLs (formally DSLs) that they could possibly share? Tools used? Any COTS tools/platforms which are available?

Any experience, advice or just pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated :D

Are you talking about Definite Media Library ?

DML is the most important Component of service continuity plan & Release and Provisioning .

Please keep below points in mind and create an Excel which should be enough

1.Release & Deployment Management as a foundation and the central storage area for all releasable deployment packages
2. Availability and Service Continuity by providing the source of all packaged applications and raw media for use in service restoration and Disaster recovery procedures
3. Automated server provisioning and rationalisation through the storage of gold builds
4. Asset Management by providing metadata records and licence keys relating to COTs software licence provision. Instances of media and the authorised media set stored together with licences and licence conditions will allow optimised management of software allocations and external compliance in terms of Sarbane-Oxley and BSA recommendations.
5. Catalogued request fulfilment, either in terms of single-user client-end product requests or repeated requests for deployments of an existing multi-user service/application to other hosting locations.
