Exploring PowerPivot for Excel and Power View in SQL Server 2012 - Peter Myers
Author: Grant Paisley Date Posted: 10/4/2011 11:26:43 AM
Join Peter Myers as he presents on what’s new in PowerPivot for Excel and explores Power View.

PowerPivot, first released with SQL Server 2008 R2, is an add-in for Excel 2010 that empowers business users to create their own tabular data models. In this presentation, you will learn how the add-in has been enhanced to include a new designer experience and new modeling features.

Power View is an interactive data exploration, visualization, and presentation experience that provides intuitive ad-hoc reporting for business users. It delivers this experience via SharePoint in the Web browser, and must be based on a tabular BI Semantic Model (either a PowerPivot workbook or a Tabular Project). Ordinarily, the tabular BI Semantic Model will need to be optimized for the Power View experience, and the basics on how to achieve this will be covered in this presentation.

Note: All theory and demonstrations will be based on the latest publicly available version of SQL Server, which is pre-release, and near function complete
