This year has seen millions of businesses go virtual. For this reason, various Microsoft tools have made a comeback … and in a big way. Microsoft Teams and Power Platform are two of the game changing solutions that have transformed the way we work.
Here's why we think you need to take a closer.
Microsoft Power Platform
Simply put, Microsoft Power Platform delivers business intelligence at its best. It’s a suite of low code development tools that brings Teams from a world class productivity tool to one that delivers on making Teams truly more effective. The low code technology used within Teams allows integration of existing apps, the creation of apps, new automation of processes between or within apps and the fostering of a data-driven culture. Power BI, Power Apps and Power Automate make up the suite.
A technology infused tool, Power BI transforms data into a business-improving solution. It collects, assesses, and analyzes files, so you can make meaningful decisions about products, functionalities, and practices. It melds cognitive and high-tech cloud services, is scalable, unified, and most importantly self-servicing. Power BI easily integrates with Exchange, Office 365, Dynamics 365, SharePoint, Excel, Cortana and Teams to give you a customizable solution that allows you to personalize interfaces and customize reports.
With Power Apps, you can easily create custom apps to modernize processes, enhance efficiency and collaboration. It allows ‘citizen developers’ to reach capabilities that were once only reserved for high-end development tools. Microsoft offers an intuitive visual design interface for PowerApps, with drag-and-drop functionality and a familiar look and feel taken from applications like PowerPoint. PowerApps connects to various Microsoft-based and third-party applications, including Microsoft SQL Server, SharePoint and OneDrive in the Office 365 productivity suite, as well as Dropbox, Google Docs, SAP, Oracle and Dynamics CRM.
With Microsoft Power Automate, you can connect to more than 220 services and manage data from cloud or on-premises sources. Microsoft Power Automate integrates with the Microsoft solutions you may already use like Office 365, SharePoint, Excel and Teams so you can easily deploy and onboard your team quickly to work seamlessly with your existing solutions. You can create a flow and perform administrative tasks in a browser, or if you download the Microsoft Power Automate mobile app, on your phone.
Microsoft Teams could very well be the most collaborative, productive tool on the market. It brings everything together in a shared workspace where teams can chat, meet, create and make decisions. Teams eliminates on-going disruptions which can zap productivity.
When you bring together Microsoft Teams and Power Platform, the result is magic. In fact, a recent Forrester Total Economic Impact study found that using PowerApps and Power Automate resulted in a 362% increased ROI, 70% reduced development costs and 15% increased business process efficiency.
