IBM Cloud SQL Query at Think 2019

Cloud-based Structured Query Language and IBM Cloud SQL Query

Cloud-based Structured Query Language (SQL) services provide capabilities that enable highly elastic and affordable cloud-native data persistency and analysis.  Solutions that traditionally required a relational database instance, can now be delivered using serverless cloud functions, object storage, and serverless SQL. We believe SQL has a bright future on the cloud.

SQL is a widely adopted mechanism to interact with data. SQL was originally developed by IBM Research, and IBM’s version of SQL became the foundation for ANSI standard SQL, which was adopted in 1986 and used by a generation of application and database developers.

IBM Cloud SQL Query is a serverless SQL service that enables cloud data-driven applications to come online faster with less specialized expertise and a lower cost. The SQL Query service enables a unified ecosystem for using SQL to query any data in the cloud.
