The fact that this isn't fully supported by now is downright absurd. How on earth does Microsoft think anyone would adopt their product if simple format stings cannot be rendered?
When will this be road mapped? PP and PQ are clumsy ways to connect Excel to on premise data.

I just want to add that my idea is to add "Pro" read only tier, which is somewhat different than an external license. This would include SSAS Tabular live connectivity for on premise data.
A viewer license to see reports with live data connections is essential. Not everyone needs the ability to create these reports. and forcing a full Pro seat may force some folks into getting creative to avoid the Pro product completely.
