[nycphp-talk] Being notified when something changes in the database

So I'm developing an application that will work within a larger supply chain
system. There is a table in the database called 'Items' which holds a list
of all items and how many of those items are in stock at a particular
location.  Fairly regularly, another system will change that table (for
example, when a new shipment of items come in) and I need to notified of
that change and fire a script to process those changes.

How can this be done effectively and reliably?  Is there a 'standard' way of
doing it?
