Reaching that data is now “simplicity itself” – with Business Intelligence for Excel you work with the product you have mastered. You use Excel as a universal front end with unprecedented analytical and planning capabilities:

· Access standard reports that contain real time data
· Slice and dice to create ad hoc reports
· Budget strategically while online through “write back” functionality
· Build forecasts on the fly


Leverage the products you already own – a true business advantage

· Use SQL Server Analysis Services cubes for your business models
· Work through Excel to reach OLE DB for OLAP data
· Employ all of Excel’s formatting and graphical functionality
· Build Excel applications that take data from underlying sources – with the ability to input data or write any Excel formula to show business results
