This course takes up where the Optima Train Excel 2016 Pivot Tables Deep Dive course leaves off. It all revolves around the fairly new suite of Microsoft “Power” tools, often referred to as Power BI. The course has three primary themes. First, it teaches you a number of methods for importing data (from a database, text files, or other sources) into Excel. The primary emphasis is on Power Query. Second, it devotes considerable time to the Excel Data Model and Power Pivot for analyzing data with pivot tables. These take traditional pivot tables to a whole new level. Third, it shows how Power View and Power Map can be used to create insightful reports and maps with very little work.
