Power Platform is a combination of Power Apps, Microsoft Flow, and Power BI. Each component of the Power Platform is built on the Common Data Service for Apps. Each component is dynamic by itself, but brilliant and masterful when combined.
Microsoft Power Apps
PowerApps is a service that fundamentally transforms and accelerates how organizations build custom line of business applications.
PowerApps connects to the cloud services and data sources you’re already using, giving business analysts and specialists the ability to quickly build apps that suit their specific needs—without writing code or struggling with integration issues. Apps can be published instantly to co-workers across web, tablets and mobile devices without waiting for app stores. PowerApps also integrates with Microsoft Flow, making it possible to trigger flows from within apps.
With PowerApps, business experts can work more efficiently together with their counterparts in IT and consulting partners, literally on the same page in a visual designer—or solve problems on their own. This makes it dramatically faster not only to build an app the first time, but to keep iterating and evolving it as needs change.
Microsoft Flow is a brand new SaaS for automating workflows across the growing number of applications and SaaS services that business users rely on. It empowers users to create workflows to decrease time-consuming tasks or processes that automate approvals, send/receive notifications, synchronize files, or collect, organize and update data.
Power BI is a suite of business analytic tools by Microsoft to analyze data and share insights. It is a cloud-based business analytics service that helps create live operational dashboards from on-premises and cloud data in one central location that you can access a range of devices. Power BI helps you stay up to date with the information that matters to you. You can connect to multiple data sets to bring all of the relevant data together in one place. Power BI dashboards help you keep a finger on the pulse of your business. The potential of Power BI’s benefits starts with the collaborative working atmosphere it facilitates within a team and between teams.
