PowerPivot and PowerView now available in Excel 2013

In Excel 2013, much of that functionality, including the infrastructure that supports it, is built directly into the Data Model in Excel. Without installing a separate add-in, PowerPivot and PowerView add-ins are installed by default. But they are not automatically enabled.  You have to do some menu/dialog box acrobatics to turn them on, but it’s a one-time set-and-forget requirement.

If you’d like to try it yourself, click through File|Options|Add-Ins|Manage COM Add-Ins|Go… and then enable the add-ins by checking them off and clicking OK.

Below diagram will give you more idea.
