Description of training

When Microsoft noticed that the world of processing, analysis and visualisation of data leaves us behind, it has started working on the missing elements for Excel users. In this way, a large range of FREE ADD-ONS appeared, of which most of us – Excel users – have no idea, and which can solve many of our everyday problems. From the time of running it, Microsoft refers to its Excel as BI. In arsenal every analyst has a possibility to download and process the data automatically using Power Query, build a data model using Power Pivot and visualise it using Power View and Power Map. During the training the users will learn what their practical applications are and how they save us time.

Aim of the training

Learn how to use Excel add-ons, like Power Query, Power Pivot, Power View and Power Map, in practice.

Participants will learn:

  • How to automate the process of data processing using Power Query
  • How to build your own model of data with formulas, which are not available in a standard pivot table, using Power Pivot
  • How to present graphic data on a report (power View) and on maps (Power Map)


During the training theoretical knowledge is combined with many exercises from add-ons in Excel BI bundle. Participants learn how to build automate reporting environment in Excel which allows us to review, update and distribute report in a very quick way.

Training form:

The training takes place in an open form and it lasts 2 days, 7 hours a day. Participants can have coffee breaks, lunch and PC’s.
