Explore data analysis and visualization in Excel, the cloud benefits of Power BI, and Power Pivot, pivot tables, and tools previously known as Power Query. Microsoft Excel is one of the most widely used solutions for analyzing and visualizing data. Beginning with Excel 2010, new tools were introduced to enable the analysis of more data, resulting in less time spent creating and maintaining the solutions and enabling a better understanding of what the data means. This better understanding is facilitated by improved visualizations and more sophisticated business logics.
