The Value is in the Refresh

Ken Puls, Excel Guru Excelguru Consulting Inc

What is Self Service BI? It's two text transaction files and a pivoted Excel budget file built into an interactive Excel dashboard in under 60 minutes. But while the analysis is important, the real value is in the refresh. Can your model pull in another 22 text files and next year's budgets in less than a minute? This model can! Come and see how Excel 2016 gives us the ability to not only rapidly create business intelligence to answer organizational questions, but also allows us to build engaging and interactive models that can be quickly updated and shared via Power BI.
