What’s new for business analytics in Excel 2016
Microsoft Excel has new features that bring advanced business analytics, business intelligence and publishing capabilities to average users. These features were available in Excel 2013 through the “Power” add-ins Power Pivot, Power Query, Power View and Power Map. However, in Excel 2016, these features are built-in.
With the BI (business intelligence) and business analytics tool in Excel, data science is no longer solely in the hands of the technical elite. Business analytics and business intelligence is now available for every Excel user.

Power Pivot creates sophisticated data models with relationships, custom calculated fields, hierarchies, and KPIs that can analyze 100s of millions of rows of data with lightning-fast performance. After getting your data, use Power Pivot for Excel to put it all together in sophisticated data models.
- Visualize. Power View lets you quickly create interactive reports, analytical views and dashboards.
