Mariner Launches Public PowerPivot Workshops

Mariner announced today that it is launching a series of PowerPivot workshops open to the public. Previously, these workshops were delivered only to companies that had a group of analysts interested in the training.

Based on the book, "Microsoft Excel 2013: Building Data Models with PowerPivot," written by PowerPivot thought leaders, Marco Russo and Alberto Ferrari of SQL BI, Mariner is one of just a handful of organizations across the globe certified to provide this training.

“For many people, PowerPivot is the first step to a greater understanding of their business drivers,” noted Javier Guillen, Mariner Senior Consultant, PowerPivot expert and lead PowerPivot trainer. “Most Excel users spend lots of time consolidating information into one dataset to make it usable through pivot tables. Using PowerPivot for Excel, you can create relationships across multiple data sources giving you more time to analyze data instead of manually distilling information from multiple systems. For example, with PowerPivot you could mash up your own CRM data with industry-standard data sets available on the web and know exactly where you stand in relationship to your industry peers,” he added.

Four workshops have been scheduled for March and April:
