Power BI Desktop has the potential to overtake as it's gaining popularity and become more futuristic. Most of Excel’s latest improvements have only become available if you have a separately installed Office ProPlus license or are an Office 365 E3 tenant.

I feel power BI has already taken over excel. Traditional methods are good but eventually you need to get out of the comfort zone and accept change.

Well, if your taking about just data gathering, then Excel is better and will be the preferred option even after a few years.

But if its about data visualization and reporting, then Excel is already overtaken by PowerBI. PowerBI is just too good for excel's standards IMO.
