Master Data Visualization Using Microsoft Excel

Whether you've just started working in Excel or you've been using it forever, chances are you've heard about data visualization and understand how important is. More than that, you've probably made a few charts you were proud of.

I was there, too. I could make any basic Excel chart my boss asked for. But I knew my charts - and many of those that I saw presented - did a poor job communicating data. Looking back, I think I was being asked to make charts just so we would have more to present.

Sound familiar? I've been where you are.

So I wanted to create a data visualization course for the business analysts who work with a lot of data and use Microsoft Excel regularly within their workflows. Chances are - you can already create a bar chart, a pie chart, and more. If that's you, read on.

Because I think a course for people like us has been missing. So I decided to distill everything I knew into a course that shows:

  • The important research behind which charts show the best information.

    That way you're always communicating the best results. And when your boss challenges you, you can point to the research. (Just point him or her to the module on why Pie Charts are the worst!)

  • How to create advanced charts not included in Excel.

    Most business problems can't be captured in Excel's native chart library. Do you know how to create Bullet Charts? Charts with multiple banding? This course will show you how.

  • How to create charts for analysis and how to create charts to tell a story.

    In this course, we'll talk about the difference between data graphics and info graphics. The former is for investigation, the latter for narration. You won't find this content elsewhere - I know, because I came up with it organically while working as a management consultant.

  • How to layout your charts and info graphics when you deliver them to executives.

    I'll introduce you to the camera tool, one of Excel's most powerful features. You'll see how it will allow you to drag-and-drop a chart, much like in Power BI.

  • Labs and Quizzes

    It's not enough to learn this information. You need to apply. I have created labs and quizzes based on the content. Take the quizzes to reinforce your knowledge. Complete the labs and then use them immediately in your own work.

  • No VBA or Macros

    I love VBA and Macros too but they're way over deployed. In many cases, the advanced chart you're thinking of making doesn't need lines and lines of code. I'll show you how quickly.

Here's what you can look forward to in this course: 

  • Data visualization principles including closure, proximity, common group and preattentive attributes

  • Theory and practice for why data visualization is so important

  • Why 3d charts cause issues when communicating data

  • Problems pie charts present to the audience

  • How to create charts with graded banding in Excel

  • How to create Bullet Charts in Excel

  • How to create Progress Meter Charts in Excel

  • How to create Waffle Charts in Excel

  • Microsoft Excel's camera tool

  • Resources to help you continue your learning

Like you, I work in the trenches, hustling to solve every new data challenge that comes my way. I wanted to create a course for people like me to learn from. If you want to stand out in the crowd and take your Excel and data skills to a whole new level, then you're the person I created this course for.

See you there,

SAP Lumira – Building Data Visualizations from Scratch

You are interested in learning SAP Lumira and getting into the wide realm of programming and intense Tech Entrepreneurship. You have probably wondered what is the most practical way of learning SAP Lumira (which to be frank, gives you the key to ruling the technology industry)

Since technology is changing every day, I have to learn something new every time. The best way that you can learn how to catch up is "to work on it".

Yet, nobody teaches in this manner and I suffer from the same pain when learning something new every time. Most courses are not designed to help you learn by example (immersion is the most potent way of learning in humans). Rather they bathe you with inapplicable information that you have to learn over and over again anyways.

This course is designed to cover all the basic concepts of SAP Lumira and the syntax necessary for learning the advanced topics in SAP Lumira. Even though SAP Lumira can open the door to working with SAP HANA, SAP FIORI, and SAP BASIS and basically everything else with the word "SAP" attached to it, it has some new functionality and nuances that you have to cover and learn.

My job is to make this class a great and fun learning experience so that I can help you progress though your path to learning advanced SAP (whether it be just programming logic...classes....backends (boring) or doing fun stuff like Data Dictionaries).

In this course, I will walk you though SAP Lumira Installation, and you will learn about data structures (we hear a lot about data, but how do we store it?),

However, only a few videos per section are focused on information. I develop the rest of the details of the data structures and syntax through exercises that I walk you through in the course. There are 2-3 lectures on solving tough exercises on each subject so that you can understand not only the syntax and how to the configure SAP Lumira, but also what the crux of SAP Functional is: POWER of SAP Lumira.

There is no risk for you as a student in this course. I have put together a course that is not only worth your money, but also worth your time. This course encompasses the basics of SAP Lumira finance and I urge you to join me on this journey to learn how to dominate the SAP world with the one of the most popular SAP Modules: SAP Lumira.

What are the chart types I will learn in this course?

Excel offers the following major chart types. All of these are covered in this course

  •     Column Chart

  •     Line Chart

  •     Pie Chart

  •     Doughnut Chart

  •     Bar Chart

  •     Area Chart

  •     XY (Scatter) Chart

And many other creative ones :)

How are charts useful in Excel?

A chart is a tool you can use in Excel to communicate data graphically. Charts allow your audience to see the meaning behind the numbers, and they make showing comparisons and trends much easier.

What are the benefits of using charts in Excel?

Excel charts allow spreadsheet administrators to create visualizations of data sets. By highlighting a set of data within an Excel spreadsheet and feeding it into the charting tool, users can easily create various types of charts in which the data is displayed in a graphical way.

This course will answer all the questions that would pop up while you set to visualize your data using Excel charts such as:

How do you make Excel charts look better?

How do you format a chart in Excel?

What are the different elements of charts?

How do I make those awesome infographics that I see in fancy magazines and TV reports?

How do I create a comparison chart in Excel?

What is the best chart to use for comparison?

And many more...

How is this course different from other resources available online?

Most courses only cover only teach how to draw different types of charts in Excel. The main point is missed. The main point of creating a chart is that you want to convey a message or tell a story using the chart. In this course, once you have learnt all the charting tools, you will also learn how you should create a chart. How you can highlight your message and avoid clutter in the chart, so that when your audience looks at the chart, the message is clearly conveyed to them.

The course is created on the basis of three pillars of learning:

  1. Know (Study)

  2. Do (Practice)

  3. Review (Self feedback)

Know

We have created a set of concise and comprehensive videos to teach you all the Excel related skills you will need in your professional career.

Do

With each lecture, we have provide a practice sheet to complement the learning in the lecture video. These sheets are carefully designed to further clarify the concepts and help you with implementing the concepts on practical problems faced on-the-job.

Review

Check if you have learnt the concepts by comparing your solutions provided by us. Ask questions in the discussion board if you face any difficulty.

Visualizations (known as visuals for short) display insights that have been discovered in the data. A Power BI report might have a single page with one visual or it might have pages full of visuals. It's important to make the distinction between report designers and report consumers. If you are the person building or modifying the report, then you are a designer. Designers have edit permissions to the report and its underlying dataset. In Power BI Desktop, this means you can open the dataset in Data view and create visuals in Report view.

· Full control over customization of reports and visuals, including adding as many pages or charts as needed

· Dynamic controls with report and page level filters

· Advanced formulas such as calculated metrics and calculated fields

You can connect to multiple data sources within the same report, and visualize data across different datasets. Data Studio gives you license to add pages, charts and tables as needed (although there are some limitations when it comes to scorecards specifically), and customize to your heart’s content. You can customize your dashboards with your company colors, or even your clients. One of the reasons why clients love Data Studio is because of the dynamic control feature, that gives them significant ability to slice and dice their data without having to update the report setup itself. With Data Studio, you can:

· Insert dynamic controls so viewers can filter through the content with dimension and date range selectors.

· Include and exclude content from a filter if there’s ever a situation where you don’t want all the content on the page to change.

Google Data Studio goes from being a simple visualization tool to giving you the ability to transform your data as needed, and it allows you to paint a powerful picture with your data.
