The Power Platform consists of 4 broad technologies:
Build mobile-friendly apps quickly and without development knowledge and reducing pressure on busy IT teams. PowerApps supports hundreds of connectors to other systems, enabling users to push and pull data between PowerApps and a CRM system, document library or line of business system.
Create your own automations by connecting various applications, such as Outlook, SharePoint, Dynamics 365 or non-Microsoft apps like Twitter, Gmail, MailChimp etc. Set up triggers, alerts, automated emails, push notifications, document approvals and much more – with no coding and in minutes. By removing the requirement for human intervention to carry out manual tasks, organisations can redirect their attention to other revenue-generating services and save a significant amount of time and money.
Business analytics tool which allows you to easily connect to data sources, create visuals and gain business intelligence quickly. Click and connect with Microsoft and third-party cloud services, as well as on-premise data sources. Easily manipulate data and create visuals, such as charts, dashboards, maps and many more – so you can present your data in an easy-to-digest format.
Microsoft’s bot-building technology. You can now build your own bots that plug-in to your website or social media channels, or for internal use. Easily create virtual agents using a guided, no/low-code interface without the need for specialist coding experience. Customer service questions and other types of external/internal inquiries at your organisation can be serviced by a virtual agent, freeing up staff to focus on more complex tasks.
