The Structure Query Language (SQL) was developed in early 1970s. It was developed by the IBM researcher Raymond Boyce and Donald Chamberlin (Horner & Hyslip, 2017). In his research, Raymond Boyce proposed that all the data stored in the database has relation among them. Using this theory, both Boyce and Chamberlin introduce SQL. Initially. It was named as SQUEL and later renamed as SQL. In 1980’s SQL has established in the market place to get warrant by the ANSI (American, National Standards Institute). Thus, ANSI released the first standard SQL in 1986 (Batra, 2018). The later updated were also provided in the year 1989, 1992 and 1999 by the ANSI. In 1979, oracle introduced its first SQL for public use.
Currently, SQL statement are able to handle the large and complex data easily while other fail to do so. Today, SQL has been accepted as the standard RDBMS language.
SQL is the most popular and important language that is used to work and communicate with the data. There are several purposes of using SQL programming language. These are that SQL allow the user to query the database in several ways. It is also used in the website to store data at backend and process it (Date, 1984). Despite having large dataset, SQL can process the query quickly. Thus, it saves time while ensuring accuracy.
SQL also provide the CRUD functionality for the database. that is, the user can Create, read, update and delete the data or tables form the database (Kießling & Köstler, 2002). SQL is also used in the machine learning. The ML engineers work with the large data set to build an accurate model. For example, Goggle cloud is a Big Query ML.
SQL Programming language is important and valuable skill that most of the business desire. It is also used in analytics and business intelligence to create visualization. It helps in analyzing the data and can also be integrated with to the programming language.
