Thank you to the nearly 550 attendees from the 2013 Gartner BI and Analytics Summit who visited the Microsoft booth and joined our “Insights for Everyone from Any Data, Any Size, Anywhere” session at the event. Those who visited had a chance to see our Big Data and BI platforms in action, specifically Excel 2013 (with PowerPivot and Power View), Data Explorer and HDInsight. In our Solution Provider Session, the audience joined in to view a new perspective on the journey from data to insight. Together, we explored what Microsoft is doing to make the data platform and tools more simple and agile to accelerate time to insight so you can take action on your data faster than ever.

Herain Oberoi and Marc Reguera’s presentation sparked a lot of interest from attendees – but also delivered on the notion of having fun with data. Through a fun and fast demonstration, Marc showed attendees how PowerPivot and Power View have dramatically changed his job in finance – making it not only more efficient – but more enjoyable.
