Use Chart Webpart in SharePoint 2013

SharePoint 2013 has discontinued (not really) some of it early version’s features and Chart webpart is one of them. It seems that Microsoft has discontinued this feature to bring up Excel Services in to better place where you can leverage the product you purchased and do more with it.

However this doesn’t mean that you cannot use Chart Web Part in 2013. if you still prefer to use Chart Web Part instead of Excel Services you can simply download the webpart and use in your Site.

Using Excel Services would leverage your knowledge very much on BI but Still this Chart web part is a very good feature that you can simply customize.
