In addition, a lot of effort went into the creation of a seamless experience in loading data from many different cloud sources and building the infrastructure needed to provide all BI enthusiasts with a framework with which they can grow their reports, share them with their teams, and refresh the data in a simple yet effective way. To make a long story short, Microsoft heard the feedback of users and built a great set of tools for the adoption of Self-Service BI.

Suddenly, in the last few months, Power BI has become the hottest topic at conferences, webinars, talks, and courses. As expected, people like you gathered interest in Power BI and began to search for resources to learn it.

This book is one of these resources and its goal is to provide you with an effective introduction to the features available in the new Power BI. We wanted to write an introduction to Power BI that covers the basics of the tool and, at the same time, shows you what the main capabilities of Power BI are.

Thus, it is fair to say that the content of the book is somewhat unbalanced. At the beginning, we go for an easy introduction of the concepts along with an educational approach that lets you follow on your PC the same steps we show in the book. However, if we continued with that same mindset for the entire book, its size would quickly vi Introduction become intimidating. Thus, after the first chapters, we begin to run a bit faster, knowing that we are no longer guiding you step by step.

Instead, we show you available features; if you want to learn the details, you will need to read and study more. This book is targeted to a variety of readers. There are information workers and people who are totally new to the BI world.

For those readers, the book acts as a simple introduction to the concepts that are the foundation of BI. Yet, another category of we wanted to target is that of IT professionals and database administrators who might need to drive the decisions of the company in adopting Power BI, because their users are asking for it. If this is you, this book acts as both a simple introduction to the basic concepts, to help you understand why users are so interested in Power BI, and as an overview of the capabilities and tools available in Power BI, so that you can make educated choices in adopting it.

The last chapter of the book gives you an overview of these capabilities. We hope you enjoy reading the book as much as we enjoyed writing it. Keep in mind that this is probably your first step in the fascinating world of Self-Service BI, the first step of a long journey in gathering insights from your data.

PowerPivot For The Data Analyst: Microsoft Excel 2010

Few users have control over how they apply Excel in businesses. Excel is easy to start using, but it is very difficult to apply it correctly.

Excel now has excellent BI tools which are becoming better integrated with each version. However, since they seem to be aimed at enterprise customers who, in my experience, tend to have their own tools in place and whose IT departments tend to guard access to the data sources with an almost religious fervour.

Book Description

The real benefit of self-service BI to my mind is in the SME sphere but they now need to pay for more expensive ProPlus subscriptions or stick with Office for the time being and hope for the best. Finally, Microsoft needs to stop changing the names of the tools! With this in mind, where does Excel fit in the future?

But the development will be in the seamless integration into every part of the process. If you look at Excel , one of the biggest features is a so called Quick Analysis button.

If you selected data, Excel started figuring out that data for you. It started to see patterns and if you selected the Quick Analysis button, Excel had already prepared the Charts that fit your data, the Pivot tables, Calculations, it already did that for you and it was no more than a click away from every user of Excel. And that struck me as a revolution, since a user with no Excel knowledge could now create a pivot table on the fly.

But in the Power BI world, they took it even one step forward. If you learned how to speak its language just as you once had to learn how to use encyclopedias any information you wanted was now at your fingertips.

Sometimes it took a bit of time to sink in, but this was true empowerment of each and every user. You no longer needed an SQL or Excel experts to get to a number you wanted. All you had to do, was to ask a question, and not ask your coworkers or your analysts, but rather ask SharePoint or Power BI which to me kind of is Excel. This is the route I see Excel taking in the future.

Truly empowering a user to do amazing in depth analysis without writing a single equal sign if you know what I mean. Maybe even taking it a step further and anticipating future events by just analyzing data without any human intervention and giving advice to users.

So Excel will get a lot smarter and in the process, so will the users, and for this ability only, Excel will probably find its way into countless even non Microsoft applications. Tom Urtis Atlaspm.

Microsoft estimates that Excel is loaded onto some million computers worldwide. As business practices and management theories have evolved over the years, so too have software programs to make sense of the limitless volumes of data requiring meaningful, concise methods to represent that data.

Some BI programs are better than others; even the best ones can be more than you need, depending on your data and the cost to learn the software and train your employees. BI makers understand that Excel is here to stay, it is versatile and works excellently with the web and BI systems. Some BI vendors say Excel should be eliminated in favor of their own software interface, but that is unrealistic and in my estimation, will never happen.

Microsoft is fully aware of the important role that BI applications play in corporate data management.

BI apps have become more affordable for small and large businesses, and the makers of these apps are equally aware that SMBs new to BI have relied upon Excel workbooks, requiring a seamless method to upload their spreadsheet data into BI software. There is a need for both entities for their products play well with each other, especially when the result is profit-positive and the voracious need is growing for smart data management.

What matters most is the research and consideration by potential downloaders of BI systems — be they small or large companies — to choose a BI vendor that can provide them with the right solutions for their business. As this includes which in my opinion it should treating Excel as the ubiquitous asset tool that it is, the future of Excel in BI workflows is solid.
