Excel for Data Analysis and Visualization 
Microsoft Excel is one of the most widely used solutions for analyzing and visualizing data. Beginning with Excel 2010, new tools were introduced to enable the analysis of more data, resulting in less time spent creating and maintaining the solutions and enabling a better understanding of what the data means. This better understanding is facilitated by improved visualizations and more sophisticated business logics.
Do you want to take your advanced Excel skills to the next level? Are you exploring new ways to get and transform your data and create visualization?
Check out this practical new course, taught in short, lecture-based videos, complete with demos, quizzes, and hands-on labs, and skill up on many of the built-in business intelligence (BI) tools and features in Excel. Learn how to present the most relevant data with dynamic reports and presentations, as expert Dany Hoter walks you through all the important details.
In this course, get an introduction to the latest versions of these new tools in Excel 2016.
