I put together a video demonstration as a follow up to last week’s Minnesota Microsoft BI User Group Q3 meeting.  In this video I highlight some of the key enhancements and additions that have been made to PowerPivot in the CTP3 release for SQL Server “Denali” (SQL11).  This add-in for Excel 2010 is available to download and test out from the Microsoft Downloads area here.

The main items covered in this video demo are the following (and there might be a couple of others that I touch on as well, so listen closely and follow along):image

  • Measure Grid
    • Create measures inside model
    • Format measures
    • New DAX Functions
  • Sort by Column
  • Diagram View
  • Hierarchies
  • KPIs
  • Drillthrough
