Description

In today’s world, there are tons of data to manage. Data is coming from many different sources. It is very important to be able to process that data quickly and then summarize it into meaningful information. Many companies have reduced their IT staff, so more and more, it is up to each person to deal with all of this data. This webinar will show you how to take large amounts of data from many sources and processes into great reports.

In this course, you will learn how to take all of your raw data and quickly turn that data into easy to use flexible summary reports using Pivot Tables and Charts. We will start with the basics and built up to more complex pivot tables. Many people struggle with how to create Pivot Tables, or maybe they don’t even know what they can do, or maybe they think they are too difficult.

I’m going to show you what they, how to use them, and that they are not difficult, and they can give you tremendous results. We will then make Pivot Charts, to graphically show the data. Then, we will add sorts, filters, slicers, and timelines to create a very easy-to-use, but very powerful dashboard that can give you instant results, and allow you to slice and dice your data any which way. You and your staff will be instantly more productive in Excel. These techniques will work cross-industry, with any type of data. You will find it to be clear and concise and right to the point, and you will be able to apply these techniques to your own data immediately after the session.
