PowerPivot is a new self service BI technology from Microsoft. Since its announcement under the code name of "Project Gemini", it has generated a lot of industry buzz, and in this session we will explore what PowerPivot means for both business users and IT. We will look at the client capabilities of PowerPivot for Microsoft Excel 2010 (including a look at the new DAX language) as well as the collaboration features that are available through Sharepoint 2010.
