The capacity that the tabular model has brought is a huge step forward, switch from MDX to DAX six years ago and not looking back!
Cool

I have not used it yet despite the fact I work on the analytics / data science team who also uses the full Azure stack with PowerBI. This is mostly because we don't use SSAS and do all that complex stuff on the back-end so you don't have to do all this complex scripting on the front-end.

Though, I would imagine in most use cases, it's going to be beneficial to learn. Seems pretty powerful if that's your thing.

Not very easy to discern which Excel version includes the product, and how we'd acquire it if our version did not.
There's this, but we use Office 2013 and it appears I need to acquire a license to use.
Digging here shows we may have to upgrade Office versions. Not going to happen.
I was excited when I read this story but the cold water is pouring in.

PowerPivot for Excel is available for free for Excel 2010 and later, that is the same analytical engine as in PowerBI.
Cool
You can use PoverBI Desktop and Excel as a data source if nothing else works for you.

Your link does not indicate the license is free. My links indicate the opposite.

Strange, I've used every version since Excel 2010 and never had to have a separate license from Excel.

Perhaps it's the fact that the samples (or developed) will work, but you cannot author a PP model without the proper Excel version and add-in. At least to my (somewhat) limited understanding

I've only used fully licensed Excel versions.
