Microsoft Excel gets custom JavaScript Functions and Power BI visualizations

Microsoft is launching a couple of features to Excel today that make the ubiquitous spreadsheet software a bit more powerful. Among the new features is support for Azure Machine Learning and custom JavaScript functions to Excel to extend its capabilities.

Excel now also allows Power BI developers to bring the custom visuals they created for Power BI to Excel. Rob Howard, Microsoft’s Director of Office 365 Ecosystem Marketing, told me that the combination of these new features essentially allows developers to bring their own line-of-service apps to Excel now.
