What is the difference between the GETUTCDATE and SYSUTCDATETIME functions?

These functions return data as UTC time (Coordinated Universal Time). In case of the GETUTCDATE(), the precision is in milliseconds. SYSUTCDATETIME() has a default precision of 7 digits after the seconds (aka nanoseconds).

SYSDATETIME( ), SYSUTCDATE( ), and SYSDATETIMEOFFSET( ) can be assigned to a variable in anyone of the date and time datatypes.
