About This Class

This course covers one of the most useful add-ins in Microsoft Excel, PowerPivot, and the Tabular model in SQL Server Analytical Services.

We'll activate PowerPivot if you have the right version of Excel, and if not, then we'll install SQL Server on your computer, which can do the same job. We'll install the Developer edition, which used to cost $100, for free.

After PowerPivot is activated, or SQL Server is installed, we'll create our first analysis in Excel in just a matter of minutes.

After only these first few minutes, you will be streets ahead of anyone who doesn't know anything about Power Pivot.

After this introduction, we'll go into some detail into PowerPivot or SSAS - the initial data, and the various options that are available to you. We will go into advanced options that most people don't even know about, but which are very useful.

Then we'll develop DAX formulas, to further extend the model. A lot of the formulas are based on Excel formulas, but there are several additional things too.

By the end, you will be an Expert user of both PowerPivot and SSAS, able to create reliable analyses which are able to be drilled-down quickly, and you'll be able to help others with their data analysis.
