What is the Power Platform?

The Microsoft Power Platform is becoming increasingly prevalent in the daily operations of businesses. This is not only due to its ease of use but also its ability to create applications—whether for enterprise or corporate use—without the need for complex coding. These tools enable us to implement significant activities quickly, automating and enhancing business strategies.

With the Power Platform, you can ensure data security, compliant application management, and simultaneous access to information from all company platforms. According to Microsoft itself, the tool “combines low-code application development, workflow automation, creation of AI (Artificial Intelligence) bots and data analysis with broad connectivity. All of this designed to work with cloud services.”

Within the Power Platform set there are: Power BI, Power Apps, Power Automate, Power Pages and Power Virtual Agents. Each of these solutions meets a specific business need and, together, they are capable of enhancing companies in their data analysis, problem solving and process simplification through automation.

In relation to Power Apps, Power Pages and Power Automate, the main focus is on creating applications, websites and automating processes, respectively. Power Apps is used to generate Microsoft applications with little code, allowing the creation of forms and programs in a simplified way. Power Pages is a web page creation tool that offers users a simple and intuitive way to create dynamic websites and web pages. Power Automate is dedicated to automating workflows, avoiding the execution of repetitive tasks within the company. Both tools offer a series of ready-to-use connectors and templates, making implementation and everyday use easier.

Power BI is a data analysis platform from Microsoft that allows users to visualize and share insights from diverse data sets. And Power Virtual Agents is a chatbot creation tool from Microsoft that allows users to create and deploy chatbots without the need for advanced programming skills.

Power Platform in Practice

Using these tools is simpler and more practical than developing a solution from scratch. The platform offers an intuitive, low-code experience with predefined templates and drag-and-drop components, making the creation process easier.

To start using the Power Platform:

  1. Validate the necessary licensing with Microsoft before starting the project.
  2. Access the resources on the Microsoft portal, available on mobile and desktop applications, by logging in with your credentials.
  3. Understand the creation needs by clearly mapping out what needs to be developed and where it will be applied in the business.
  4. Begin developing your first application, taking advantage of all the simplicity and functionality offered by the Power Platform.

Remember: after creation, the applications are not available for download on Android and iOS platforms. You need to install the Power Apps feature on the mobile or desktop version to access them.

After creating the applications, managing them becomes simple and easy.

However, as data and information increase, system maintenance and development can become more complex. This is where an expert in the platform can make all the difference, guiding and evolving everything appropriately.
