Data is growing at an alarming rate in many situations excel is becoming less of a viable option to deal with all of this data so what do we do? Does it make sense to immediately move to a database? Well, that comes with a lot of commitment and a lot of cost in terms of implementation and maintenance. However in the last decade a powerful alternative has emerged.

PowerPivot.

So before you move to a database you need to consider power pivot which has been described as Excel on steroids!

Picture this-you're used to dealing with large volumes of data and as it grows and grows and grows excel just slows down and grinds to a halt and it becomes very frustrating to get the outputs that you need well PowerPivot has come along and turned Excel into something like a database so we have a relational model, we have Data Analytics Expressions or DAX expressions to easily and quickly perform analysis on our large volumes of Data.
