IBM Cloud SQL allows us to access a variety of information from databases, including information about products, stocks, orders, and makes the retrieval, sorting, and analysis of this data much easier. Also, we are able to combine data from several data sources. A table usually displays data that it stores. View records that meet our criteria.

I know it but have used very little in my work yet. I hope in the very near future to find the opportunity to dedicate more time to the experimentation of this facility and to recognize its requirements and advantages, then to be able to get more out of the IBM Cloud for my clients and organizations.

I am using IBM Cloud Object Storage to work on projects that will enable me to obtain a Data Science Certificate from Coursera in order to expand the consulting capabilities of the company. I plan to continue using it professionally in my consulting work. IBM Cloud Object Storage is awesome for storing data from web pages that you need to manipulate or display in different ways. Your data is stored with the latest security measures. The time to load your data is incredibly fast for the price point. Backup versions in the cloud are extremely valuable.

We have been using SQL queries to monitor customers' tickets on regular basis to identify workload and tracking. It helps us [create] reports, analytics, and presentations. Further, we [have] not used it in depth because [the] organization has assigned these specific tasks to HR/Audits teams and gives them full access to IBM Database for SQL queries only.
