Abstract

SQL Server 2014 is the latest release of Microsoft’s enterprise-class database management system (DBMS). As the name implies, a DBMS is a tool designed to manage, secure, and provide access to data stored in structured collections in databases. Transact-SQL (T-SQL) is the language that SQL Server speaks. T-SQL provides query and data-manipulation functionality, data definition and management capabilities, and security administration tools to SQL Server developers and administrators. To communicate effectively with SQL Server, you must have a solid understanding of the language. In this chapter, you begin exploring T-SQL on SQL Server 2014.
