Microsoft SQL Server is a relational database management system developed by Microsoft. It is a software product with the primary function of storing and retrieving data as requested by other software applications which may run either on the same computer or on another computer across a network. There are many versions with different features and fixes supporting the needs of different audiences and workloads.

To give the date format or to convert from one format to another the commonly used function or command is CONVERT function. Using this standard date format as well as some additional formats can also be given. The output of this function will be of VARCHAR date type. SYSDATETIME () function can be used to return or display the desired date format after using the CONVERT function. This is the SQL statement – SELECT CONVERT (VARCHAR(26), SYSDATETIME(), 23) and the output will be displayed as 2016-01-01.

The Microsoft SQL Server or simply SQL Server is an RDBMS or Relational Database Management System developed by Microsoft intended for enterprise environment. It runs on Transact-SQL or T-SQL which is a set of programming extensions from Microsoft and Sybase that puts in a number of features to traditional SQL. This includes exception and error handling, transaction control, declared variables, and row processing.

An example is SQL Server 2005 which is code named Yukon during its development stage. It was released in November 2005 and is said to offer enhanced flexibility, scalability, dependability, and security to database applications making them easier to create and deploy therefore decreasing the difficulty and dullness involved in database management.

Its initial release was the 16-bit SQL Server 1.0 in 1989 which is code named Ashton-Tate / Microsoft SQL Server. Its creation was a partnership between Ashton-Tate, Sybase, and Microsoft which is aimed at creating a variant of Sybase SQL Server for IBM OS/2. It served as Microsoft’s entry to the enterprise-level database market which competes against IBM, Oracle, and later, Sybase.

The latest version of the SQL Server is Microsoft SQL Server 2016.
