Use Excel PivotTables for Data Analysis and Business Intelligence

PivotTables are one of the most powerful tools in Excel’s data analysis and business intelligence (BI) armory. With just a few clicks of the mouse (and no complicated formulas) you can quickly and easily build reports and charts that summarize and analyze large amounts of raw data and help you to spot trends and get answers to the important questions on which you base your key business decisions.

Knowing how to create PivotTables is a must-have skill for anyone who needs to use Excel to quickly build reports and summaries. This session by expert speaker Mike Thomas will provide a solid foundation that you can use to build your own PivotTables and reports. Mike will use Excel 2016 for Windows to explore the uses of PivotTables, however, most of the functionality demonstrated is also available in the earlier versions of Excel (2007, 2010, and 2013).
