Introducing XLCubed: More Microsoft BI power with less tools

Microsoft have a huge and growing choice of BIclient tools, but this represents a problem for many organisations on several levels. What is the right tool for the job? Who has the skills to deliver in SSRS / Power Query / PPS / Excel etc.? How do we bring this all together? The tools depend on the version of Office, SQL and SharePoint, and each has its strengths and weaknesses. Crucially, in many areas they fail to fully leverage what is available in the data platform.We’ll show how XLCubed unlocks the value of Multi-dimensional and Tabular SSAS and SQL for power users in Excel and provides pixel perfect delivery of reporting and dashboards for Web and Mobile users, with or without SharePoint.The session covers PivotTable pain points from the field, analytics, reporting, and business effective dashboards. We’ll consider these from an enhanced Excel perspective, and in terms of web delivery and scheduled report distribution.Showing by example rather than PowerPoint, we’ll outline why customers ranging from the M of SME to some of the world’s largest corporates choose XLCubed to help them deliver successful BI projects more efficiently.
