Whitepaper: The Microsoft Power Platform Tool Set: A ‘Down-to-Earth’ Primer
This paper provides an overview and practical guide to the tools within Microsoft’s Power Platform family. Among other things, this set of tools is intended to provide automation capabilities to users. That is, the tools provide customers with low-code/no-code tools for automating business functions and processes, including reporting and dashboarding.
The tools are all state of the art, and well regarded by technology rating companies such as Gartner, with some being clear leaders in their sector. Our expectation is the tools will all widen their lead in the next few years.
No surprise, all tools in the platform work seamlessly together and work well with other products in the Microsoft family, including Office 365. They also work well with hundreds of other enterprise apps, with Microsoft already having built the connectors needed to pass information back and forth between these apps. The tools in the Power Platform are all reasonably priced, in most cases well below principal competitors, and are easy to set up and use quickly, especially for Microsoft-based companies.
