Microsoft Excel: Business Intelligence Power Query and Power Pivot DAX

Categories: MS Excel

About Course

This course introduces Microsoft Excel’s powerful data modeling and business intelligence tools: Power QueryPower Pivot, and Data Analysis Expressions (DAX).

If you’re looking to become a power Excel user and absolutely supercharge your Excel analytics game, this course is the A-Z guide that you’re looking for. I’ll introduce the “Power Excel” landscape, and explore what these Excel tools are all about and why they are changing the world of self-service business intelligence.

 

Together, we’ll walk through the Excel BI workflow, and build an entire Excel data model from scratch:

  • First, we’ll get hands-on with Power Query; a tool to extract, transform and load data into Excel from flat files, folders, databases, API services, and more. We’ll practice shapingblending, and exploring our project files in Excel’s query editor, and create completely automated loading procedures inside of Excel with only a few clicks.
  • From there we’ll dive into Data Modeling 101, and cover the fundamentals of database design and normalization (including table relationships, cardinality, hierarchies, and more). We’ll take a tour through the Excel data model interface, introduce some best practices and pro tips, and then create our own relational database to analyze throughout the course.
  • Finally, we’ll use Power Pivot and DAX to explore and analyze our Excel data model. Unlike traditional Excel Pivot Tables, Power Pivot allows you to analyze hundreds of millions of rows across multiple data tables (inside of Excel!), and create supercharged calculated fields using a formula language called Data Analysis Expressions (or “DAX” for short). We’ll cover basic DAX syntax, then introduce some of the most powerful and commonly-used functions — CALCULATEFILTERSUMX, and more.

 

If you’re ready to take your Excel game to new heights and join the leading edge of analytics & business intelligence, this course is for you. It’s time to stop fighting with tedious, manual tasks and struggling with “old-school” Excel; join me on this journey and emerge a certified excel analytics NINJA.
