    • Governance
      • Managing the use of this tool (and dissemination of data) is important
      • Enterprise Information Management (EIM) strategy must consider the use and impact of PowerPivot

      • Copy of data is stored in SharePoint content db
      • SharePoint is responsible for backup, not SSAS
