What’s New for BI in Excel 2013?

Excel 2013 is an exciting release for Microsoft BI, and in this session we’ll take a look at all the new BI-related features in it: the PowerPivot engine integrated directly into Excel; Power View integrated as a new type of worksheet; web-based reporting with Excel Services in Sharepoint 2013; new features for users connecting to SSAS (Tabular and Multidimensional); and many other new features and functions. It’s so exciting you’ll want to upgrade right away!
