SQL is an acronym for Structured Query Language. This is the coding language that we use to interact with a website’s database. Common SQL statements are used to add, update or retrieve data from a database. Some of the most popular relational database software that uses SQL are Oracle, MySQL, DB2, Microsoft SQL Sever and MS Access, though there are plenty more.
While most database systems are fluent in SQL, many also have additional proprietary extensions that are individual to their systems. Proficiency in SQL allows developers and report analysts to achieve any task that needs to be done within a database.
