In today’s world of information, the way we experience data can have enormous impact on the meaning of data. The first step in analyzing and exploring data is to decide how to explore it, shape it, format it, and create the visualizations that will give deeper insight into your business. A part of the Microsoft Business Intelligence stack, Excel 2013 can give you the power and analytical capabilities that you need through new analysis capabilities such as timeline slicer, Quick Explore and calculated OLAP fields.
