Microsoft SQL Server PowerPivot for Excel is a new technology aimed at providing self-service Business Intelligence (BI). This tool, an Excel add-in, puts the power of expensive and complex business intelligence tools in the hands of strong Excel users, free of charge. PowerPivot is a powerful in-memory database that allows the user to join data from multiple sources, create relationships, and develop calculations in a way previously out of reach to non-technical users.
This class is intended to help you begin to cross the chasm between analyst/Excel user and business intelligence professional. Microsoft has also expanded into Big Data and this class will include a demo on using Big Data in a PowerPivot solution and a GeoFlow demo if time permits.
