Default Datawarehouse and PowerPivot

Hi, Ron

I got your book and I started to read it. I don't have much experience with this, so I want to know about data warehouses and PowerPivot? I don't understand that concept, for example my company wants to implement PowerPivot, so do we need to create data warehouse or data mart (SQL 2008 R2) and create tables for example like those from Contoso sample database to put it on that server or we can use already existing Excel sheets and data of our company? Any help to understand this, please

Thank you
