Book by Rensselaer Lally School Faculty Serves as Resource to Make Data More Efficient in Business

  Dr. Pindaro Demertzoglou

As the demand for data in business and the ability to obtain, analyze, and share it grows, resources that showcase how a user can accomplish those tasks more efficiently are needed.

The book titled, Microsoft Access SQL Comprehensive Version 2010 (AlphaPress), by Pindaro Demertzoglou, lecturer and senior systems administrator at the Rensselaer Lally School of Management, was written with this purpose in mind.

The book is plentiful with case studies from real life projects and exercises and written for the student learning Microsoft Access SQL, based on Demertzoglou’s 14 years of experience of teaching information systems and operations management. The published work is conducive to a classroom environment, but applicable to interested individuals or businesses.

“This book is a reflection of a topic that I have enjoyed immensely during my years of teaching, and is a skill in demand by business students and the marketplace,” said Demertzoglou. “The ability to retrieve, analyze, and understand data can make businesses more efficient – ideally allowing them more time to focus on other value-added activities.” 

The book’s approach is very comprehensive as it takes the reader from the basics of Microsoft Access SQL and develops them to the level of a skilled professional who can use databases resourcefully for real business tasks.  The work can also be used by those who work with the exchange of data, conduct data mining, or do online analytical processing.

“I wanted to assist students in becoming SQL experts,” said Demertzoglou. “I included a multitude of case studies and exercises on real business scenarios so students can appreciate the strengths of SQL and be competitive in the job market.”
