This book was written by analytics experts who typically design enterprise data warehouses and other analytics infrastructure, bringing that system-level experience to help make the learning curve for front-end tools as small as possible the end-consumers of data. Key business decisions can no longer be made without data and the analytical outputs of data: insights and conclusions. Microsoft offers an industry-leading suite of business intelligence tools, providing impressive flexibility and power to turn raw data into insights, all with a reasonable learning curve. Microsoft provides a rich set of tools to enable business users of data to procure and transform data so it can be useful for explaining, visualizing, and even making predictions from the data. Along with Excel, these tools include Power Pivot, Power Query, and Power BI and each application is focused on one or more area of the business analytics process. For example, Power Pivot and Power Query are powerful tools for retrieving data from disparate sources and merging it together to enable comprehensive analysis spanning a variety of data sources. Many analysts and decision makers think that large enterprise platforms are required to get into data science and machine learning. However, Microsoft packs a lot of power into its offerings and analysts just need to know where to find it. Microsoft Excel offers a wide array of built in statistical functions enabling users to build models, produce forecasts, and perform what-if analysis on their dataset. Power BI, often viewed solely as a data visualization tool, integrates with the two de facto standards for data analysis: R and Python. These free software environments offer a full suite of statistical computing and graphics, from very basic to the most advanced techniques imaginable, and all of these methods are accessible in Power BI.
