Excel Has Never Been the Same with Self-Service Analytics on SQL Server 2008 R2
We have to admit that Excel is the most popular data visualization tool there is. In this session, we'll look at using Excel to gather data from different data sources, model that data, and then use it as a source for pivot-table and pivot-chart analysis - all in the context of self-service analytics in SQL Server 2008 R2. We'll also look at some of the new analysis features available in Excel 2010, including slicers, improved charting, and improved pivot-table functionality
