PowerPivot, Power View and SharePoint Server

Speaker: Tomislav Piasevoli

Microsoft SharePoint Server is a collaboration platform that in its Business Intelligence (BI) part relies on Microsoft SQL Server platform from where both the Power View, a tool for visual data analysis, and PowerPivot, a tool for data modeling originate. This session shows how to create a PowerPivot data model in Excel 2013, and how to analyze that model in Power View installed as a part of SharePoint 2013 BI platform.

  4. 4. Abstract• Microsoft SharePoint Server • Business Intelligence (BI) part relies on Microsoft SQL Server platform • Power View, a tool for visual data analysis • PowerPivot, a tool for data modeling• This session shows how to: • create a PowerPivot data model in Excel 2013 • analyze that model in Power View • installed as a part of SharePoint 2013 BI platform
  5. 5. Contents• Introduction• Demo - PowerPivot• Demo - Power View• Summary

  11. 11. PowerPivot• analytical engine for self-service and team BI• extracted from SQL Server Analysis Services • to work as part of Excel or SharePoint• comes in two flavors: • Excel (self-service BI) • part of Excel 2013 • add-in for Excel 2010 • SharePoint add-in (team BI) • installed using SQL Server 2012 (+ SP1) for SharePoint 2013 • installed using SQL Server 2008 R2 for SharePoint 2010
  12. 12. Power View• a tool for creating highly interactive, presentation-ready reports• intuitive data exploration• encourages ad-hoc reporting• comes in two flavors: • Excel (self-service BI) • part of Excel 2013 • Excel 2010 or previous don’t have it • SharePoint add-in (team BI) • installed using SQL Server 2012 (+ SP1) for SharePoint 2013 • installed using SQL Server 2008 R2 for SharePoint 2010
  13. 13. The idea behind• SCENARIO 1 – Self-service BI • create a PowerPivot data model in Excel 2013 • analyze the data in Excel 2013 using Excel Pivot Tables and Power View • refresh the data on demand • enhance the data model as you go • save the model, data analysis and visualization in the same file
  14. 14. The idea behind• SCENARIO 2 – Team BI • create a PowerPivot data model in Excel 2013 • publish the data model to SharePoint 2013 and create connections to it • analyze the model using: • Excel Services and/or Power View on SharePoint • Excel (Pivot Tables and/or PowerView) • enhance the model locally, then publish again (be careful – dependency) • collaborate • data refresh is scheduled on a periodical basis • maintenained by SharePoint
  15. 15. The idea behind• SCENARIO 3– Enterprise BI • move the once created PowerPivot data model in Excel 2013 to SQL Server Analysis Services as a Tabular model • create a connection for it in SharePoint 2013 • analyze the model using: • Excel Services and/or Power View on SharePoint • Excel (Pivot Tables and/or PowerView) • model is enhanced on a server (SQL Server) by IT • collaborate • data refresh with even finer grain (less than a day) • support and maintenance by IT department or 3rd party

  18. 18. Summary• SharePoint as the platform for Microsoft BI• Easy to start with: • PowerPivot for data modeling • Pover View for visual data exploration • Excel and Excel Services for data analysis• Later: • SQL Server 2012 and/or PowerPivot • Excel, Excel Services, Power View, Reports, Dashboards, ...• Models are upgradeable (PowerPivot -> SQL Server)
