What are some of differences in data modeling between Power BI Desktop and Power Pivot for Excel?

Ans: Here are some of the differences:

Power BI Desktop supports bi-directional cross filtering relationships, security, calculated tables, and Direct Query options.

Power Pivot for Excel has single direction (one to many) relationships, calculated columns only, and supports import mode only. Security roles cannot be defined in Power Pivot for Excel.

The main engine behind power pivot is the xVelocity in-memory analytics engine. It can handle large amount of data because it stores data in columnar databases, and in memory analytics which results in faster processing of data as it loads all data to RAM memory.
