Why you should care

Transactions are vital in SQL as one of them is the representation of one or more changes to the database. For instance, anytime a record is created, updated or deleted in the database, a transaction is performed in that database.

Therefore, it is recommended to manage transactions as they ensure data integrity and handle database errors as well.

Business Impacts

More often than not, Code is plagued with insecurities. These security risks can be prevented by having data validated so that the program can be healthy and secure.
