COURSE DESCRIPTION:

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 analytics, this course is the A-Z guide that you're looking for.

We'll kick things off by introducing the "Power Excel" landscape, and explore what these tools are all about and why they are changing the world of self-service business intelligence.

Using sample data from a fictional supermarket chain, we'll get hands-on with Power Query; a tool to extract, transform and load data from flat files, folders, databases, API services and more. We'll practice shapingblending and exploring our project files, and create completely automated loading procedures 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 Excel's data model interface, introduce some best practices and pro tips, and then create our own relational database to analyze throughout the course.

Next, we'll use the Power Pivot and DAX to explore and analyze our data model. Unlike traditional pivots, Power Pivot allows you to analyze hundreds of millions of rows across multiple data tables, 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 NINJA.

See you there!
