New PowerPivot 2010 for Excel course launched.

News item added on Monday 30 April 2012


For some time now it's been possible to analyse large sets of data using SQL Server Analysis Services.  The problem was that it was hard to get to grips with this complex and unfamiliar software, which was also - dare we say it - a little dull.

At the other end of the analytical scale, business users have been butting up against the limitations of pivot tables for some time now (such as their inability to bring in data from several different sources, and the Excel row limit constraint). 

PowerPivot is aimed at Excel business analysts who have large datasets and are power-users of pivot tables.  It includes the DAX expression language, which allows you to ask questions such as:

  • "Compare total sales of chocolate frogs with the previous quarter"; or
  • "What is the year-to-date figure for all regions, for one particular product".

If all this sounds of interest, have a look at our new two-day PowerPivot 2010 training course.  The first one is scheduled for September, although we will be able to give onsite training courses earlier than that if required.
