Move beyond manual Excel analysis and reporting. Automate processes to import, manipulate and calculate data, while creating powerful visualizations. Extend PivotTables with Power Query and Power Pivot.

In this program, learn how to use automated data queries to link data from external databases into Excel and then transform this data into Data Models. From there, understand how to use Power Pivot and CUBE formulas to streamline the process of summarizing and reporting this data. Also, learn how to take advantage of advanced features such as Data Analysis Expressions, Key Performance Indicators, Hierarchies, and Dimensions to streamline reporting processes. Further, learn how to create compelling visualizations of this summarized data to help readers understand the true meaning behind the numbers. If PivotTables are used on a regular basis, take advantage of the powerful advanced reporting features available in Excel by participating in this course.
