    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 ...

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


    Add to Cart

    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.

    Itís 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 wouldnít be equipped to teach courses on Power Pivot.

    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 ...

    Way back when this book was nothing more than a concept, we knew that it needed to be approached in a specific way.

It had to be written to keep you engaged, and to take you on a guided journey, learning from someone who understands you as an Excel pro, how you work, and what you face on a daily basis.

    In this hands-on course we are going to look at the most important Excel features that will turn you into a quick and efficient data master in Excel.

Itís with that feature weíll start, showing you how and why this little feature should form the foundation of every solution you build.
