companies think that SQL is somehow easier than programming


Well 'technically' that is true.

For the most part, especially the way companies use it the vast majority of time ANSI SQL is not that difficult.

However PL/SQL, TSQL, etc are not in fact ANSI SQL.
Nor for that matter is database design, optimization, etc.

Not sure where you are going with this.

Bad code is just back code. Bad designs are just bad designs.
The language is not the problem for either of those.
And ignorance of those problems certainly is not the fault of the language.

Basically a simple web app that just executes stored procedures on GET and POST requests....The stored procedures are usually written by "IT professionals", "consultants" and managers.


But for most businesses, most of the code should in fact be simple. It should not require much more than that. It is pointless that everyone be a database DBA because there is generally no need for the expertise all of the time. So there will be some stored procs because that is all that is actually needed.
