Organisational Benefits

We all know there is a lot of data in the World and SQL databases are often the backbone of an organisation's IT architecture.

SQL Has A Proven Track Record Of Producing The Least Vulnerable Databases - Your organisation can rely on a database with the least vulnerabilities of any major platform while being the most widely used database on the planet.

SQL Delivers A Consistent Experience Both On Premises And Cloud - Your employees can tackle your mission-critical workloads with larger virtual machine size and use the skills already have with common development and management tools.

Individual Benefits

SQL Is One Of The Most Sought-After By Hiring Employers - Employers are seeking out individuals who know SQL and you will be able to earn a higher salary. If you are looking to move to another organisation, learning SQL makes you a highly sought after prospect.

You Will Be Able To Get An To Any Question That You Ask - Think about all of the question you ask about your precious data on a regular basis. Once you identify the database that stores the data you want, SQL empowers you to answer your own questions and you will no longer wait on colleagues to send you a report.

You Will No Longer Have To Deal With Excel Crashing - Ever crashed your Excel spreadsheet because you had too many rows? SQL allows you to perform operations on this vast amount of data without having to worry about crashing a program not designed for that amount of information. Microsoft Excel is a great tool but relational databases are designed for those larger operations and SQL is the language that allows you to complete them.
