Differences between Excel Azure ML and Azure ML? RRS feed

  • Question

  • What are the main differences with these products? 

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/machine-learning/studio/excel-add-in-for-web-services

    At first glance, it looks like I can only use published models but I can't create them in Excel? Is that true?

  • Hi,

    Azure ML allows you to train and deploy models (via web services). The Excel ad-in allows you to interface with existing web services. Using the Excel ad-in, you can easily select columns to use as input/output while running the predictive model, but there is currently no option to modify the workflow or schema within Excel. For more information on Excel ad-in for Azure Machine Learning Studio web services, please read the following. Hope this helps. Please let me know if you have further questions. Thanks.

  • In the past, during Excel 2010-2013, we had an ML addin. 

    Will this tool be further developed? Excel is simply wonderful for doing data munging. 

    Can I make comments about on the Excel uservoice?
