What is Microsoft Power Platform - Evolvous

What is Microsoft Power Platform?

Some of you might be aware of the Global Power Platform Bootcamp coming up soon, with loads of presentations sharing how newcomers and power users alike can make the Microsoft Power Platform group of applications work for them. The global event is the perfect place for people who want to learn more about Power Platform, its various use cases, and how to optimize it for the work they need. 

But for those of you who unfortunately can’t make it, or want to know more before the bootcamp, it makes sense for us to share more about what the Power Platform actually is. After all, some of you are reading this blog to learn more about our powerful applications so you can use them for your own business if you haven’t yet or learn how to utilize them to their greatest potential if you already do. 

Power Platform actually refers to three different Microsoft products – Power BI, Power Apps and Power Automate. Altogether, these three apps used to analyze and manipulate data, as well as a host of other custom purposes that help businesses save money by working faster and smarter. That’s the power of applications that not only work well with each other but are customizable to meet your business’ very specific needs. 

Microsoft Power Apps 

It is an interesting tool which allows you to quickly build web-based applications for internal use by your business. What makes it such a powerful tool is that it allows people with little to no programming or development experience to make apps using a simple point-and-click interface, and which can used almost anywhere, from a webpage to directly inside a Microsoft SharePoint server. One of the ways it can be used is to interpret and process data from other Microsoft applications like Office 365, and even third-party apps that already connect to your work online work environment.

Microsoft Power BI

Then there’s Power BI, a powerful analytics application that also lets you interact with Microsoft apps and third-party sources to gather and process the data you need to make smarter business decisions. It does all the things you perhaps expect from an analytics platform but does it just a bit more intuitively. For instance, it allows you to use natural language to search data in the application, instead of requiring you to learn specific search terms. Schedule your Power BI Consulting with us.

Microsoft Power Automate

And lastly, there’s Microsoft Power Automate, which lets you set up automated workflows connecting your Microsoft services and other applications to streamline your workload and save your business valuable time. With it, you can create triggers and alerts, and set up push notifications and automated actions for applications like Twitter, Asana, Outlook, Dynamics 365 and more.

These three applications, when put together, are more than just the sum of their parts. For instance, using Power Automate to connect the custom apps that you make through Power Apps to send specific kinds of unique data through Power BI, and then perform automated actions to generate and post that data for the people that need it can create a workflow that lets you and your company focus on the work that helps it grow. But they can also be combined in so many interesting and unique ways that serve each business differently, or even give you opportunities to experiment and innovate in your business.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t just use one of them to meet your company’s individual needs. These robust, easy-to-use tools can work well on their own if you’re just looking for the next tool in your toolbox, and also interact well with a whole list of third-party applications, which means that you can easily fit one of them in with the applications your company already uses.
