  • The Powerpivot Revolution (the new perception of the Excel user)

    zero-to-hero - The XL Pro revolution(not really from zero, but you get the idea of how it changes the perception of an excel user)

  • What is Powerpivot? (The Million-dollar question)

    The Riddle

    (The Riddler)

    While the prize on whoever answers this question varies, it could potentially be worth more to any business in terms of ROI.

    In short, Powerpivot is the new tool that allows/enables the business users to take a much more important role in the creation of insights that are relevant to the decision making process.
