Power Pivot for SharePoint (SSAS)


An Analysis Services server in Power Pivot mode provides server hosting of Power Pivot data in a SharePoint farm. Power Pivot data is an analytical data model that you build using one of the following:

  • The Power Pivot for Excel 2010 add-in

  • Excel 2013

Applies to: Power Pivot for SharePoint 2013

Server hosting of that data requires SharePoint, Excel Services, and an installation of Power Pivot for SharePoint. Data is loaded on Power Pivot for SharePoint instances where it can be refreshed at scheduled intervals using the Power Pivot data refresh capability that the server provides for Excel 2010 workbooks or that SharePoint 2013 Excel Services provides for Excel 2013 workbooks.

SQL Server 2016 Power Pivot for SharePoint supports Microsoft SharePoint 2013 Excel Services usage of Excel workbooks containing data models and Reporting Services Power View reports.

Excel Services in SharePoint 2013 includes data model functionality to enable interaction with a Power Pivot workbook in the browser. You do not need to deploy the Power Pivot for SharePoint 2013 add-in into the farm. You only need to install an Analysis Services server in SharePoint mode and register the server within the Excel Services Data Model settings.

Deploying the Power Pivot for SharePoint 2013 add-in enables additional functionality and features in your SharePoint farm. The additional features include Power Pivot Gallery, Schedule Data Refresh, and the Power Pivot Management Dashboard.
