Data’s got a brand new bag: PowerPivot for Excel (video)

There’s lots of data out there: LOTS. The digital universe is about eight hundred thousand petabytes (that’s eight hundred million gigabytes). Your business is no doubt contriubting to that number and needs a way to work with it. PowerPivot is a free add-in for Excel that can link multiple spreadsheets or even link to databases. That means you can work with millions–emphasis on the “s”–of lines of data. Excel also has another tool to help you slice through data, which I’ll tell you about in this short video. It’s an excerpt from Envisioning the future, my behind the scenes look at the Office Future Vision video.
