SQL, Short for Structured Query Language, is specifically designed to store, manipulate, query, request, and access data stored in specific relational databases. The technology giant IBM created SQL to operate its early relational database prototypes in the mid-1970s. Today, SQL helps users interact with the databases that power vital infrastructures, such as global cell phone networks, and important institutions, such as the world’s largest banks.

SQL has served as the standard for relational database systems around the world for more than four decades. Specific benefits of this targeted but versatile computer language include its efficient CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) capabilities. For high-tech professionals who want to provide database solutions for industry leaders such as IBM and Microsoft, SQL proficiency is a must.
