    • 10. Server Monitoring Dashboard
    • 11. PowerPivot FAQ
      11
    • 12. Why do we need a proto-typing environment
      MS Access and Excel are the current front-runners
      Lack IT visibility
      Lack community visibility
      Creative end-users make many demands on IT that don’t get traction
      Business users need to merge 3rd party data with corporate data plus assumptions
      They do not have well thought out requirements
      IT can waste lots of resources chasing the requirements
    • 13. PowerPivot Prototyping
      IT can offer training and advice on using PowerPivot for prototyping.
      IT provides access to corporate managed data sets.
      Business users build models using Excel with PowerPivot add-in.
      IT supplies server resources for hosting PowerPivot models
      IT monitors PowerPivot model usage including both users and server resources
      Business users continue to develop new versions
      IT works with business to create an enterprise scalable application when the business value is high enough to justify the cost
    • 14. PowerPivot Summary
      Client and server components
      Users need access to data – they do the analytics
      Server components required to share PowerPivot models on the intranet
      Server components come with built-in monitoring for IT to effectively manage
      Models that become “important” to the business are good candidates for an enterprise application
      This approach can get IT off the critical path for some sets of users and business needs
