Now more than ever, organizations are looking for ways to put relevant data in the hands of information workers. They know that the right data empower users to generate key insights and make better decisions. To do that, business users require user-friendly, self-service BI tools that allow them interact with data in a meaningful way.

In-memory business intelligence has gotten a lot of traction over the last few years for its ability to connect and model data “on the fly”, making it instantly available for analysis and reporting. Microsoft is now joining the game and revolutionizing the BI market with PowerPivot, it’s new in-memory engine that allows quick, self-service analytics without having to pre-aggregate or build cubes prior to querying.

Join us for a series of workshops with Donald Farmer, one of the leaders in the PowerPivot development,  to learn more about in-memory business intelligence and how you can empower users with more self-service BI capabilities, using the familiar and easy to use interface of Microsoft Office.
