  • PowerPivot FAQ
    11
  • 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
  • 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
  • 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
