SQL stands for Structured Query Language. It is most often pronounced "sequel" or sometimes pronounced by spelling out the letters "S-Q-L". SQL is a query language that is used to interact and perform tasks with relation databses. This language was originally developed by IBM in the 1970s.

T-SQL (Transact SQL) is a proprietary SQL extension used by Microsoft SQL Server and Sybase SQL Server. T-SQL adds extensions for procedural programming.
