Microsoft Power Platform
Power Platform consists of four applications, or components:
Microsoft Power BI is a cloud-based business analytics solution designed to help organizations “turn unrelated sources of data into coherent, visually immersive, and interactive insights.” With Power BI, users can pull data from multiple sources — for example, an Excel spreadsheet and a database — and use it to create easy-to-understand data visualizations that provide a 360-degree view into business operations.
Microsoft PowerApps is a program that leverages the low-code technique to democratize software development. Rather than manually program line after line of code, PowerApps users can quickly design and develop apps by dragging and dropping components into a flowchart-style formation. PowerApps users have their choice of two application types: canvas apps and model-driven apps.
Originally known as Microsoft Flow, Power Automate brings design logic to applications created in PowerApps. Similar to PowerApps, Power Automate is designed to democratize automation through the power of Robotic Process Automation and enables users to build complex, automated business and process workflows, which are triggered by insights from Power BI.
