Session 01 (12:00 GMT on May 19)
In this level -200 session, you’ll learn how to use PowerPivot to create self-service analytics in your organization. See how Office 2010 and SQL Server 2008 R2 can help your users answer their own questions and bring together datasets that may be heterogeneous, such as a SQL Server table and data feed from a Web site. Then see how to take that data and create a striking report for your end users as well as collaborate with the data in SharePoint. Key takeaways include how to use PowerPivot to create a culture of self-service BI and how to use SharePoint to share that business intelligence with others.
