Logical Operations Expands Business Intelligence Curriculum Portfolio With New Collection of Courses Covering Microsoft Office Excel, SQL Server, and SharePoint

ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwired - April 27, 2016) - Logical Operations, the world's leading provider of information technology instructor-led courseware, is pleased to announce an expansion of its business intelligence curriculum portfolio with exciting new titles covering Microsoft Office Excel, SQL Server, and SharePoint. 

According to a recent Gartner report, the business intelligence and analytics market is currently shifting from IT-led, system-of-record reporting to business-led, self-service analytics. Because of this, business intelligence platforms are becoming an increasingly popular choice for gaining deeper business insights in a faster and more agile manner. With this surge in business intelligence usage, there will be a shortage of professionals who are skilled in working with business intelligence tools. In fact, by 2018, there will be a projected 1.5 million shortfall of data professionals in the U.S. alone.

Logical Operations' new line of business intelligence training curriculum, brought to the market through a partnership with Blue Buffalo Press, will help professionals gain the skills needed to successfully work with business intelligence tools such as SharePoint, Microsoft SQL Server, and Microsoft Office Excel to provide deeper insights and more value to their organization. The curriculum, available now, comes in both print and digital formats, and includes a high percentage of hands-on activities and videos that enhance the learning experience. In addition, the curriculum qualifies for Microsoft Software Assurance Training Vouchers (SATVs), which make it easy for organizations to claim money from Microsoft for this type of training.

The 19 new business intelligence titles are available for immediate purchase on our online store at

"Corporations and the employees who work for them are increasingly making decisions based on data analysis," said Bill Rosenthal, CEO of Logical Operations. "Our curriculum library now provides a clear path for our customers, whether serviced by our training center channel or by ourselves directly, to gain the skills necessary to be competitive in today's economy."

"As the founder of Blue Buffalo Press, it has been gratifying over the years to see our offerings expand and our sales continually increase. I knew we had uncovered a significant opportunity when the premier courseware distribution company, Logical Operations, agreed to partner with us. This was the event we had been waiting for and we had turned down several suiters beforehand. With Logical Operations distributing and actually enhancing our courses, we are able to concentrate on development and expansion into new topics. A great day for all of here at Blue Buffalo Press!" said Ron Davis, Owner, Blue Buffalo Press.
