Go beyond the basic calculation and charting functionality of Excel with the computational and visualization power of the Wolfram Language, the data resources of Wolfram|Alpha technology and the centralized computation model of the Wolfram Cloud.
Developers benefit from using the Wolfram Language through the whole development cycle, using the simple language to solve complex problems and instantly deploying to the Wolfram Cloud. The implementation of any solution is remote from the Excel user. This means that calculations are done on a remote server, and it is therefore easier to protect any proprietary information.
When Wolfram CloudConnector or Excel is used with a Wolfram Enterprise Private Cloud, additional benefits are unlocked for administrators. This includes features such as control access via user groups, as well as logging and auditing tools. Administrators can scale hardware needs for computation in a central location. In addition, centralized access to key resources such as databases and legacy code can be safer, since the number of pathways to these resources is reduced.
