  • Background Self-Service Business Intelligence
    New paradigm
    “Business intelligence for the masses”
    “Managed self-service business intelligence”
    Put simple, powerful BI tools in the hands of “knowledge workers”
    Familiar tools: Excel
    People who own the data
    Excel spreadsheet, Access database or SharePoint list data
    Reality: Office power users
  • PowerPivotTechnologies
    Ability to easily create self-service BI applications using familiar tools (MS Excel)
    Easy to update and modify without being a BI developer

  • Analysis Services in VertiPaq Mode
    In SQL Server 2008 R2, the VertiPaq storage engine is used for in-memory multidimensional databases within
    Excel workbooks
    Includes PowerPivot workbooks that have been published to a SharePoint site.
  • Analysis Services in VertiPaq Mode
    PowerPivot for Excel is the only client that is supported for creating and querying in-memory databases that use VertiPaq mode.
    The multidimensional database that you create in PowerPivot tools is contained within the Excel workbook
    You cannot access the VertiPaq storage engine by using traditional SSAS clients and tools
