I will be presenting “Data Mining 2012 with Microsoft Excel 2010 and PowerPivot” at TechEd Europe in June 2012. The conference runs from June 26-29, 2012. This blog post has the details.
The presentation is a “Breakout Session”:
Excel 2010 provides a world-class platform for enterprise decision making. This presentation introduces the decision-making ability possible with the free Excel add-ins for PowerPivot and SQL Server Data Mining. The data mining is a service hosted in Microsoft SQL Server Analysis Services 2012, but the Excel add-in exposes the enterprise-strength server technology to analysts and executives. This talk introduces some functions from the “Analyze” and “Data Mining” tabs, including data mining model creation from Excel data. Having seen this presentation some had thought it was all Excel since the functions seem so seamless. The Excel interface provides a familiar way for professionals to make actionable decisions.
I will be using the new 64-bit Excel 2010 Add-in for SQL Server 2012 to demonstrate this technology.
This conference is SOLD OUT. However, you can click this link for my presentation details. I am presenting on Friday 29 June from 2:45 PM (14:45) to 4:00 PM (16:00).
I previously presented this same topic at TechEd North America also in June 2012 — though based on excellent feedback, the demos for TechEd Europe will be even better than good.
