An Overview of the Microsoft Power Platform
Low-code technologies offer the promise of effective “citizen development”, where even non-technical users can build apps and virtual agents with little to no IT intervention. Thanks to Microsoft Power Platform, users can have a digital base with which complex routine tasks can easily be simplified and processes are automated at just the push of a button. With this outstanding platform, existing business processes are transformed and new models are developed. Let’s see what exactly Microsoft Power Platform is.
What is Microsoft Power Platform?
Microsoft Power Platform is a set of low or no-code tools that brings connectivity into the business and automates processes and workflows effectively. It combines the power of key solutions – Power BI, PowerApps, Power Automate, and Power Virtual Agents. Power BI for analytics and reporting, PowerApps for building custom applications, Power Automate for business processes and workflows, and Power Virtual Agents for automated communication.
Microsoft Power BI allows you to see interactive, useful, real-time dashboards and provides you insights in a single pane helping you make better and quick business decisions. With power BI, you can gain insight regardless of where the data resides. Hence, connecting and consolidating that data to give you a complete view across your business is the intention.
Microsoft PowerApps helps you quickly build applications with little to no development required. It allows users to build no-code apps as well as some with very little code. With PowerApps, you have the best prerequisite for developing completely individual and user-defined applications. Such independent apps serve as the basis to handle manual business processes in a digitally automated way.
Microsoft Power Automated helps you easily automate workflows and optimize the desired processes. The service can be expanded individually at any time without any need for programming knowledge. Power Automate ensures automated workflows, simple application creation, and modeling of business processes in the shortest possible time.
Power Virtual Agents
Microsoft Power Virtual Agents helps companies to easily create intelligent chatbots without any code. These chatbots can do a lot of your manual routine work and communicate with both customers and employees.
All the applications of the Microsoft Power Platform represent solutions that support conventional browser use as well as focus on mobility, and hence can be operated via smartphone or tablet. The data is connected through more than 275 different data connectors that are inherently built for the Microsoft Power Platform. Then further you can use artificial intelligence (AI) to build in logic and build AI around that. With all Microsoft solutions, the data is housed in Microsoft Dataverse (formerly known as Common Data Service). All the data can be accessed across any application because it resides within this one primary data collection.
