Format: Paperback
Marco and Alberto explain PowerPivot in an amazing way. Their book is well structured, highly instructive, and very informational. A lot of times they point out useful, specific info. For example, quote "The only interesting function in the group of A-suffixed functions is the COUNTA one. It returns the number of cells that are not empty and works on any type of column". Things like that saves my time. I don't have to meticulously go through the whole list. The book explains difficult concepts in an easy-to-understand way. For example, it explains (de)normalisation in data modelling brilliantly. The book enables us to quickly understand the points by following the examples.
The book is particularly useful for people who never used PowerPivot and just started learning it. It explains, step by step, how to retrieve the data and produce reports, including creating dashboards and data models. I have used PowerPivot and SSAS, so for me the most useful chapters are chapter 4 (evaluation context), chapter 9 (data model patterns) and the DAX function reference in the appendix. I will use this book as reference. I particularly like the eBook which comes with the book. It enables me to read on the train without the heavy book in my bag.

I have had the pleasure to share multiple spaces with Alberto and Marco, being a SQL Server MVP myself. And the clarity and technical rigour of their knowledge is greatly appreciated among many BI experts in the industry. If you are looking for your first resource to learn EFECTIVE dax, look no further. This book must be part of your fundamental arsenal for tackling the new BI generation. I wish there would have been a book like this when I started MDX 15 years ago.

Siendo un MVP de SQL Server, he tenido el placer de compartir múltiples actividades a lo largo de los años con Alberto y Marco, y la claridad y el rigor técnico de ambos es altamente apreciado entre los expertos de la industria de BI del mundo Microsoft.Si estás buscando un primer recurso para aprender DAX de una forma EFECTIVA, no busques más. Este libro debe ser una parte fundamental de las herramientas para afrontar la nueva generación de BI. Ojalá hubiese existido un libro como este cuando inicié mi camino en MDX hace 15 años.

There is practically no learning curve for business analysts when using their favorite tool, Microsoft Excel, to navigate and explore big data and OLAP cubes fact and dimensions using PowerPivot. The PowerPivot is just an add-in to Microsoft Excel 2010 that allows quick import, sort, filter massive data sets and simplify year-to-date, closing balance, data-driven computations, calculate ratios, ranking, standard deviation, pareto analysis, sophisticated PivotTables, reports, charts and ability to do complete Excel formulas with DAX PowerPivot language, and possibility to "browse" millions of rows of data inside spreadsheet, taking full advantage of Microsoft Excel 2010 1,048,576 rows by 16,384 columns limits. I have worked in several big and small data warehouse projects here In Dublin, Ireland. I am always amazed on how PowerPivot puts business analysis quickly together on same page with data warehouse modelers and architects, technical developers, testers and IT project managers, making their participation in Agile Scrum meetings a more effective one, especially when constant business insights into the data are required on a sprint by sprint basis. A must use tool for serious Business Analysis. Highly recommended!

As always, MS Press has produced a thorough, informative learning aid. Basic topics are introduced well, perhaps a little slowly in the early stages as most users of PP will be fairly experienced with Excel. I found the coverage of DAX to be quite extensive and easy to follow. Not going to win any awards for engaging writing style but a good primer nonetheless.
Also comes with a CD containing examples, which i have to say i found to be less useful; the examples seemed very simplistic and not as supportive of the text as they could have been - minus 1 star.

Unlike a lot of other 'about/how to' books this managed to explain quite technical subjects without descending into techno babble. Very well put together and I thoroughly recommend it.
