Database management

SQL is a programming language used to manage and manipulate relational databases, making it a powerful tool for data analytics.

SQL is widely used in data analytics and is a valuable skill for anyone working with data.

Programming languages

Its ease-of-use and wide range of libraries such as NumPy, Pandas, Matplotlib, Seaborn, and Scikit-learn make it an excellent choice for data manipulation, visualization, and machine learning. Python also offers interactivity, which allows users to explore and manipulate data in real-time, making it an ideal tool for data analysis.

Cloud Computing
