SQL is a programming language used to manage and manipulate relational databases, making it a powerful tool for data analytics. It allows users to extract, manipulate, and analyze data from large databases quickly and efficiently, by providing capabilities for querying and filtering data, aggregating and summarizing data, joining multiple tables, and performing calculations on data. SQL is widely used in data analytics and is a valuable skill for anyone working with data.

Python is a high-level programming language used in data analytics because of its simplicity, versatility, and powerful libraries. 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.
