When planning an Office upgrade, Excel performance is often a top concern. We understand you need to be certain that your macros, formulas, and data models will execute as smoothly after your upgrade to Microsoft 365 Apps as they did before. That’s why the Excel team has been hard at work on a long list of performance upgrades aimed at making Excel in Microsoft 365 the new gold standard for Excel performance.  


This week at Ignite, we announced faster Aggregation and RealTimeData functions – a third round of enhancements following Speedy Lookups in 2018 and a host of CPU and memory-use improvements in 2017. And customers are taking note: even before this last round of improvements, an analyst at Bridgewater Associates told us that “Moving from 32-bit Excel 2016 to Microsoft 365 Apps has increased the speed in which we can run our custom tools and delivered greater stability and performance.” 




If concerns about Excel performance have been keeping you on an older version of Office, it’s time to take another look at what Excel in Microsoft 365 has to offer. Support for Office 2010 ends on October 13, 2020. Make the shift to Microsoft 365 Apps today.
