Advanced Analytics: Excel Solver

Industry analysts are now talking about ‘advanced analytics’ methods, such as optimization, as the next big thing: Go beyond slicing and dicing, analyzing, or even predicting from data, to making better decisions from data, and allocating resources more efficiently. But optimization is what Solver has offered Excel users for 24 years. So what’s new? How about Solver App in Excel Online? Solving huge models, with hundreds of thousands of decisions, using data pulled in via Power Query and Power Pivot? Performing risk analysis using Monte Carlo simulation in Excel, then optimizing decisions in the presence of uncertainty? Learn what Solver is good for, and what ‘advanced analytics’ is really all about, from someone who’s been doing it for many years.
