We all are experimental by nature. At times, it is good that we don't have optional or alternative ways of doing certain things. It prevents incomprehension of what has been studied or learnt already. But options and alternatives available to us force us to look back and cross-check. This cross-checking throws light up on some facts we would have otherwise ignored.
This article explores lesser known but useful facts about some of the excel functions and charts.
Last week, authors Joseph D'Antoni and Stacia Misner released a new white paper that talks in detail about the use of Power BI in a hybrid environment taking advantage of the Data Management Gateway.

To be able to interact with/create visualizations, you will need to install Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013 (this version will already have two of the four components of Power BI - PowerPivot and Power View).

In the example we’ll use Excel 2013 and the AdventureWorks2012.
