Description

* This course is #6 in the Microsoft PowerBI series of webinars. Click button in Program Content section below to see suggested viewing order. * This course focuses on using the Power Pivot features to enhance data analysis. One of the strengths of Power Pivot is the formula language DAX (Data Analysis eXpressions). We will spend considerable time using the power of DAX to create meaningful calculations that add new dimensions to our data. We will also review the use of a date or calendar table that allows us to perform date analysis that was never possible before. This will allow us to use the new time-intelligent functions to perform complex calculations on our data like: month-to-date, quarter-to-date, year-to-date, last year same period, last year-to-date, etc. We will also demonstrate the hottest tips and tricks that will take your data analysis to the next level. This event may be a rebroadcast of a live event and the instructor will be available to answer your questions during the event.
