5 Reasons Why You Need SQL

July 17, 2017

There are a number of reasons why it makes sense to gain a working knowledge of SQL. Here are the top five benefits:

  1. Scalability–SQL is the language used by relational databases, and is used throughout the world in both proprietary and open source databases and its syntax is controlled by an international standard. Once you learn the SQL language, you can successfully use it with any relational database.
  2. Enhanced job skills–Because it is so widely used, knowledge of SQL is a highly sought after job skill by recruiters for any computer-related job. Not just programming or systems analyst jobs, but many other jobs that deal with the data stored in databases.
  3. Quick–SQL gives you the ability to retrieve the information you want from a database quickly and easily with simple English-like statements. No programming required. Retrieving answers quickly will make you more valuable to any organization.
  4. Better decision making–Understanding how the technology in your office works is valuable. The more you know, the better your decisions.
  5. Logical--Aside from all the “practical” reasons for learning it, SQL is intuitive and logical, and thus fun to use.
