PowerPivot on SharePoint: How to Install and Configure it Yourself!
Undoubtedly, PowerPivot is the shiny new toy in the Microsoft BI toolbox, but installing and configuring this powerful new addition to the SharePoint stack can be a daunting task. Join us in this session as we help navigate you through the ITPro perspective on the pitfalls and traps to a successful implementation. We’ll show you the best practice for configuration and discuss some implementation choices and the reasoning behind them. We will also give a comparison of features between SQL Server 2008 R2 & SQL 2012 to help ease the decision of jumping in to a new version.
In the second half of this action packed presentation we will show you some flashy examples of the End User experience with PowerPivot in action, give you an understanding of how dynamic a tool the new version of PowerPivot really is, & take you on a guided tour of Power View. Lastly we will show you the integration between the new SQL 2012 features & SharePoint 2010 and how the experience has improved in the new version.
