    Course Description

    The sad reality is that not all data we need for our reports is stored in nicely curated databases. While some of the data may be, the reality is that we also need to piece together data provided in text files, Excel files, web pages and even the body of emails in order to build the complete business intelligence solutions we need. Until now this has been a ...

    Learn to Write DAX:
    A Practical guide to learning Power Pivot for Excel and Power BI


    Add to Cart

    Power Pivot has been called “the best thing to happen to Excel in 20 years.” 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. Analyses that you would never have considered viable in the past are now easily doable tasks within the current business cycle.

    But to unleash the enormous power of Power Pivot, you will need to learn how to write DAX. Power Pivot is very learnable, but it also very different from Excel so you need some structured learning if you want to use the tool effectively.

    The Excel User's Guide to DAX, Power Query, Power BI and Power Pivot in Excel 2010-2016

    It’s for this reason that we HIGHLY recommend Power Pivot and Power BI as an essential part of the learning journey. In fact, had it not been for the material in this book, Ken says he wouldn’t be equipped to teach courses on Power Pivot.

    Learning how tools work is great, but if you can’t figure out how to apply it to your own work, it doesn’t 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 ...
