Build, analyse and automate with the Microsoft Power Platform
Microsoft Power Platform: the user-friendly low code – no code platform
If you want to be able to switch quickly, innovate and respond to market demands, you don’t always want to be dependent on the IT department for business apps and reporting. Thanks to Microsoft Power Platform, users can now work with apps, workflows, reports and chatbots themselves.
The Power Platform fills the gap we often see between standard applications, expensive and time-consuming customisations that were developed in the past. Using the Power Platform, users with relatively little technical knowledge, can build apps, analyse data and easily automate processes themselves.
The Microsoft Power Platform is suitable for digitising paper processes, and also for replacing error-prone and disparate Excel spreadsheets that circulate around many organisations. All data comes together in one database, so that everyone has access to the same information at all times. The Power Platform is based upon Data Connectors, AI Builder and Common Data Service.
The Power Platform consists of:
Microsoft Power BI combines extensive analysis functions with a user-friendly interface. Power BI enables you to analyse and visualise business data, connecting seamlessly with Microsoft Office and Dynamics 365 applications.
Power Apps is an application that allows you to easily develop your own apps to automate tasks and processes. Applications in Power Apps are low code, so (almost) anyone can use them. More about the types of Power Apps and possibilities can be found here.
With Power Automate you can automate tasks, (even if you are not a programmer), easily connect triggers and actions across different systems for example, from Microsoft Office to Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement.
Want to build your own chatbots? This is now possible with Virtual Agents, which you can also connect to Power Automate. Think of a chat with a customer with whom you schedule a maintenance appointment. Via Power Automate, the appointment will appear in the mechanic’s agenda and the customer will receive a confirmation email automatically.
The benefis of Microsoft Power Platform:
- No specialised IT knowledge required
- Trusted, intuitive technology
- All data together in one database, thanks to the underlying Common Data Service, (CDS)
