If your goal is to enter the world of BI, Data Mining and or Data Analysis you have to take this course. All of these environments and roles demand the skills you are about to learn
Microsoft PowerPivot is an add on for Excel that provides Business Intelligence functionality and reporting within the familiar environment of Excel.
This capability enables manipulation of hundreds of millions of rows of data with the capacity to provide business insights and shorter decision making cycles laughing in the face of the million row threshold of regular Excel
To start with the course focuses on importing data into Power Pivot to create the Data Model. You will learn about calculated columns and other DAX related concepts that will show you how to “shape” the data.
Next, you will create relationships between tables of data negating the need for VLOOKUP. Reducing the time it takes to “shape” your data - is one of the major benefits of this awesome tool.
With the data model in place, next you delve into the world of DAX measures. These are Data Analysis EXpressions functions that build the formulas to provide the business insights that decision makers and stakeholders dream of.
There is no programming involved with DAX - your Excel formulas experience has set you up nicely for the next step in your Excel journey.
Throughout the course we work together building the data model and measures. At the end of each step you have an opportunity to practice creating your own measures to help you consolidate, embed and reinforce everything you have learned. I provide a solutions video lecture before moving on to ensure you’re on track and ready to move on.
I provide all the files you need to follow along and a fully supporting, screen-shot enriched 78 pg. user guide pdf packed with all the steps and practice exercises with solutions.
Power Pivot is the perfect tool for those working in finance, statistics, project, business and market analysis or any data reporting role who have a need to create and produce Business Intelligence style dashboard reports.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my course. I can't wait to help you take the next step in developing your Excel skills. I have used Excel 2016 to demonstrate this fantastic tool but you can follow along in Excel 2010 & 2013 - I'll do my best to point out the differences.
