    Add to Cart

    Power Pivot has been called ďthe best thing to happen to Excel in 20 years.Ē It is a revolutionary piece of software that brings everything that is good about enterprise-strength business intelligence (BI) tools directly to you right inside Excel, and without the negative time and cost impacts you would normally expect from big-scale BI projects.

    Excel pros are used to working with unstructured data. This ability is what has made Excel so successful, but itís also this freedom that makes learning Power Pivot challenging. Why? Because Power Pivot requires structured data, something weíre just not used to.

    Learning how tools work is great, but if you canít figure out how to apply it to your own work, it doesnít help. And that, right there, is why this book is so essential. Not only does it teach you the concepts of how to build your DAX measures, this book clearly works through how DAX calculates those measures. ...
