Reporting and Presenting Data


Every implementation of a DW/BI (Data Warehouse/Business Intelligence) system ought to result in creating reports useful to business users, otherwise it cannot be viewed as successful. Unfortunately, sometimes projects of this kind are developed from the perspective of IT specialists, not business users, with a data warehouse in view instead of reporting. In effect, a properly working data warehouse is created, which turns out entirely useless nonetheless. Our course will give you the knowledge and skills necessary to work with such data analysis tools as Excel, Excel Services and PowerPivot, as well as to visualize data using PowerView program, create reports on your own with Reporting Services, and build Key Performance Indicators, Scorecards, or Dashboards using PerformancePoint Services.
