Power Pivot Training Classes in Cleveland, Ohio at DeVore Technologies – Live, In-Person Instructor Led Training

Conveniently located in Beachwood, DeVore serves the Northeast Ohio Area, including Lorain – Elyria- Akron – Canton – Warren – Youngstown and Erie, Pa.

Cleveland, Ohio, Rob Collie, former Microsoft Engineering Manager teaches Power Pivot
World-Class Training in CLEVELAND without travel expense!

Simple value proposition – with the investment of two days’ time you will not only learn to use Power Pivot, you will also develop a picture of its potential impact within your organization.

Rob Collie not only was one of the founding engineers behind Power Pivot during his career at Microsoft, he wrote the best-selling Power Pivot Textbook, which you will receive as part of the class, and is the author of the #1 Power Pivot blog.

A Microsoft add-on to Excel 2010 & 2013, Power Pivot blends the familiarity and “same-day” agility of Excel with the robustness and power formerly found only in industrial-strength BI tools.

It empowers business users to produce dramatically more valuable insights than possible with “traditional” Excel alone – in short periods of time, at zero additional cost, and without the burden of ongoing manual effort.

Power Pivot is at the core of Microsoft’s entire “self-service” BI offering – other Power BI components such as Power View and Power Query are best understood as extensions to Power Pivot itself. Power Pivot knowledge is therefore your logical first step into a whole world of new capabilities.

This class in Cleveland, Ohio provides a unique opportunity to not only learn the “how” part, but to ask “why” questions of a truly authoritative source (within class time limitations, not detracting from the ‘how’ part…) This training is IT’s opportunity to be out ahead of this, rather than reacting to requests from Departmental areas.

And of course, it “plays well with SharePoint”, but does not require SharePoint.

DeVore was surprised to hear that Power Pivot is considered a ‘mature” product with 15 years of development history, not a ‘version 1.0.” Below are a few articles from the groundswell we are beginning to see on Power Pivot:

“Power Pivot is the Best Thing to Happen to Excel in 20 Years. This book unlocks its secrets for today’s Excel users.” -Bill ‘MrExcel’ Jelen ( referring to Rob’s book: DAX FORMULAS for Power Pivot

“Journal of Accountancy – Pivotal Advance Boosts Excel’s Power –

This class can also be delivered at your location, if you have a group of individuals about to embark upon a Power Pivot adventure, and can be arranged as a custom class at DeVore.

Visio at DeVore April 27th! Sign up today !

DeVore Technologies will be teaching Visio on April 27th. Think you need Visio? Call us for a discount price!

Visio is primarily a flow charting application used in engineering, software development, business planning, financial strategies, and a number of other leading industries. What makes Visio so useful is that it can turn the complexities inherent in many of the concepts of engineering, business, and technology into comprehensive documentation.

Visio was designed to give its users the tools to integrate visual charts and diagrams with data across multiple sources. Diagrams can be linked to data sources across networks (particularly useful in a near paperless office, where multiple workstations need to access shared data on a network).
