Advantages of JavaScript

Speed: Being client-side, JavaScript is very fast because any code functions can be run immediately instead of having to contact the server and wait for an answer.

Simplicity: JavaScript is relatively simple to learn and implement.

Versatility: JavaScript plays nicely with other languages and can be used in a huge variety of applications. Unlike PHP or SSI scripts, JavaScript can be inserted into any web page regardless of the file extension. JavaScript can also be used inside scripts written in other languages such as Perl and PHP.

Server Load: Being client-side reduces the demand on the website server.

Libraries: Many code libraries for JavaScript functions are freely available. These allow developers to provide extensive levels of functionality without having to implement the details themselves.

Content Management: JavaScript allows developers a level of flexibility in terms of the information that is displayed within a page.

Styling: JavaScript can alter the style of website elements as users interact with them. Common uses of this technique include altering the appearance of an interactive item such as a menu option when the user moves her mouse on and off it, changing the colors and images displayed within it. JavaScript can also create animations within Web pages, making the appearance and disappearance of page elements smoother and more engaging.

Interactivity: JavaScript functions often enhance interactivity with a Web page. Developers can create JavaScript functions to implement interactivity within user control features.

Using Pivot Table Data in Summary Sheets

Learn Pivot Tables Easily

Pivot tables are a great boon in Excel. Previously, getting IT departments to write custom reports used to take ages. And even if you could get a report written for your needs, by the time you got it, it was too late, or you wanted to look at information from another angle.

With Pivot tables, you can now create your own reports in no time. And you can slice and dice information pretty easily, with just a few clicks.

However, even though Pivot tables are great, they are not the best tool  for presenting information for the senior management. There may be times when you want to pick up certain information from the pivot table, format it nicely, and present it with other summary figures.

To use the summarized data from the pivot table, but make it more presentable,  you can use an extremely useful function of Excel called the GetPivotData.

Enabling GetPivotData Button
It is very easy to get this function to work. This little gem is hidden right within the Pivot Toolbar. Just right click on the Pivot Toolbar, right at the end, and select customize. Pick Add/Remove Buttons.

Select GetPivotData button. This is a toggle button – click it once and it gets enabled, and another click disables it. You can see a slight change in the icon when it is enabled or disabled.

Once the button is highlighted, you can begin writing your formula. Start with a = sign in a black cell where you want a pivot table value. then point to any cell in the Pivot Table. Its value is captured in your formula.

As long as the data is available and visible in the Pivot table, you can move the data around from rows to columns or page fields, but it will still appear correctly in the presentation area.

Go ahead. Give it a try and make your data presentation summaries more dynamic and presentable. Any questions or comments, do let me know.

Pivot Tables in Microsoft Excel

Learn Pivot Tables Easily

In Microsoft Excel , new features are sparklines and slicers, and improvements to Pivot Tables and other existing features, can help us to discover patterns or trends in the data. In the previous post we had a look at the Sparklines and Slicers features of Excel 2010 so now we will look at the improved pivot table feature of excel.

Improved Pivot Tables

PivotTables are now easier to use and more responsive. Key improvements include:

  • Performance enhancements: In Excel, Multi-threading helps advanced  sorting, data retrieval and filtering in Pivot Tables.
  • Write-back support: In Excel, we can update values in the OLAP PivotTable Values area and then transferred to the Analysis Services cube on the OLAP server. We can use the write-back feature in what-if mode and then roll back the changes when we no longer need them, or we can save the changes. We can use the write-back feature with any OLAP provider that supports the UPDATE CUBE statement.
  • Enhanced filtering: We can use slicers to quickly het the reqiured data in a PivotTable and see which filters are applied without having to open additional menus. In addition, the filter interface includes a handy search box that can help us to find what we need among potentially thousands (or even millions) of items in the PivotTables.
  • Pivot Table labels: We can add labels in a Pivot Table and also replicate them in the Pivot Tables. This will help us to display item captions of nested fields in all rows and columns.
  • PivotChart enhancements: It has made things easy to interact with PivotChart reports. Specifically, it’s easier to get the required data directly in a PivotChart and to reorganize the layout of a PivotChart by adding and deleting fields. Similarly, we can hide all field buttons on the PivotChart report.
  • Show Values As feature: The ‘show values as’ feature includes a number of new, automatic calculations, such as % of Parent Row Total, % of Parent Column Total, % of Parent Total, % Running Total, Rank Smallest to Largest, and Rank Largest to Smallest.

Effective Presentation Techniques for the Board Room

Creating Killer Presentations @ Intellisoft

After years of slogging, you are finally getting a chance to do a presentation in the board room. Do not take this lightly. And do not blow this chance to impress senior management about your skills.

Many a career have been contained when engineers, who are domain experts, completely knowledgeable, are called to the board room, and because of fear, or in-experience, are tongue tied, mutter, splutter, and mumble something incomprehensible.board-presentations

It is true, Fear of Public Speaking is the worst fear in the world. It is the highest fear, even ranking higher than the fear of death.

Do you want to stifle your career too soon, all because you are un-prepared for the big boardroom presentation?

Practice now. Get ready. Be prepared for your big chance. And play it safe, play it well, and present to win, present to wow, present to amaze your audience!

Effective presentation techniques for the boardroom can be easily acquired.

1. Prepare a Solid Presentation
This should not be a problem as you have the content, and you have the domain expertise. But it is an art to prepare a presentation. Do not present a 100 slide presentation full of bullet points. This leads to Death by PowerPoint.

The Secrets of a Great Presentation are:

A.  Tell ’em what you are going to tell ’em.
B.  Tell ’em.
C.  Tell ’em what you have just told them.

What this means is that a. Have a clear and thought about Agenda. State it in the beginning, so there is no mystery. Stick to the agenda.

boardroom-presentation

Secondly, have only 3-5 points to cover in the presentation. Keep slides simple. And stay away from amateurish PowerPoint Animation effects. Fly in objects, slow animation, corny graphics or too much use of clip art is sadly lost on the boardroom. Do a slick presentation with corporate like graphics, simple round or square bullets. Keep to only 2-3 bullets on a slide.

Show less information, and talk more from these bullet points. So that people are not reading your PowerPoint, but rather they are listening to you.

Thirdly, summarize the information. Tell them the key points, your own justification/stand, and the final outcome.

2. Rehearse it well.

You must rehearse your presentation a few time in front of the mirror, or in an empty room. Time it, so that you know you will not overshoot the allocated time. And practice how to open the speech. How to close the speech. Some speakers start with a joke. But this must be done with care. What if no one laughs on the joke? It can back fire on you. So choose your opening carefully. You can go to YouTube to watch some good presentations at Ted.com.

Another good way is to record your presentation using a Video recorder, or a audio recorder on your phone. Listening to your own voice can seem odd, but you will catch many mis-pronunciations, and many pauses which you were not aware of.

3. Maintain Eye Contact & Good Body Posture

Many people are so afraid of the audience that they try to hide behind the podium, or they look at some remote corner of the room while speaking. In one of my earlier presentations, someone from the audience congratulated me on observing their new curtains. When I told them I didn’t find anything new about their curtains, she told me that I was staring at the curtains all entire time I was speaking. What a polite way to tell me that I lacked eye contact. I was so naive… but then I realized the mistake and thanked her for being so thoughtful. I then worked upon improving my eye contact, and learnt how to work a room.

You can look at their foreheads and continue for a few seconds, then move to another forehead and so on… It will seem to the people that you are talking to them, and not staring at some remote corner.

Similarly, it is important to maintain a good body posture. Stand straight. Do not slump. Keep your hands in the front. Not in the pockets, not dangling like a pendulum. And do not keep jingling the key chain or loose change in your pockets to avoid any nervousness. Nothing is more distracting than jingling change or key noise in a presentation. Do not pace the room from left to right. Stand firm in one place. You can move to different areas to illustrate the points, but do not dangle like a pendulum. It should look natural movement, not deliberate, for the sake of moving.

4. Have Enough Time for Questions & Answers

Anticipate some questions. In fact, you can have a Frequently Asked Questions section, and show standard, canned responses to some standard questions.

Keep some time for audience questions. Once the question is asked, repeat the question, so that everyone can hear it, and thank the Enquirer about the thoughtful question. Do not ridicule the question if it is a simple or silly question. Then answer the question completely. And get a confirmation from the enquirer about whether you have answered their question completely or not.

Finally, once everything is said and done, thank the audience for giving you a chance to listen to you, and for their time and patience.

These are simple tips. Easy to master if you at least take notice, and practice on improving them. And once you apply them, you will be amazed at how powerful your presentations will begin to be.

If you would like to learn more practical tips, you can always attend a training program at Intellisoft, and learn from the gurus on how to improve your soft skills.
