Appending Data periodically to a SDE Feature Class

Hi all,


I'm pretty new to this but we have a ArcGIS database with many Feature Classes.

I have one Feature Class with around 65,000 objects which I want to update on a monthly basis.

I need to be able to compare records from one month to the other.

What is the best practise to do this?

I was thinking of utilising a date-loaded field so that I can compare the months?

Or should I be using versioning?


The Feature Class will eventually have > 1,000,000 records if I keep appending new monthly data to this feature class each month.


I am hoping to compare changes in objects across many months.


Any advice would be appreciated.
