DCT was of great help for migrations to 8 and also 9. Unfortunately it has not been updated in a long time and a lot of new settings and best practices are missing. Not many companies use it though because they don't know it exists.
Add DCT to the default set of created databases and have a prominent link in Help and in the startup page of the Admin client. Since it should run on local, maybe add a simple "create db" link to the description as well.
