Whenever someone asks to "see" a cube, one of the first tools that most Microsoft BI professionals will reach for is Excel. It's widely available and is a tool that most people are familiar with, but it's often lacked some of the "bling" of a dedicated BI client tool. With Excel 2013 that's all going to change.
Join SQL Server MVP Darren Gosbell in this session where we will explore some of the new BI functionality in the preview release of Excel 2013. We will be particularly focussing on Power View, which until now was only available via Sharepoint. We will look at the functionality that is available in Power View and some of the ways you can optimize your PowerPivot and BISM Tabular models to enhance the experience when browsing them with Power View.
