Topic: Heavy Metal PowerPivot Redux

Undoubtedly, PowerPivot is the shiny new toy in the Microsoft BI toolbox, but installing and configuring this powerful new addition to the SharePoint stack can be a daunting task. Join us in this session as we help navigate you through the pitfalls and traps to a successful implementation. We’ll show you the best practice for configuration and discuss some implementation choices and the reasoning behind them. We’ll show you some flashy examples of PowerPivot in action, give you an understanding of how dynamic a tool the current version of PowerPivot is, and finally give you a road map and tour of what is coming in PowerPivot v2 & Power View as a part of SQL Server 2012.  You won’t want to miss this information packed session!
