Powerful business application platform – Microsoft Power Platform

18.06.2019 netwise

The newest Microsoft’s business solution is a combination of 3 already known tools: PowerApps, PowerBI, and Microsoft Flow into one powerful business application platform – providing quick and easy app building and data insights.

What are the three trends that helped to shape the business environment for low code platforms like the Microsoft Power Platform?

Connectivity – the new generation of business applications should be connected to one another to allow connections between business functions and processes that were previously considered as silos. Employees need to work together to get things done, so the business tools.


Empowered employees – business users carried out with spreadsheets and SharePoint for a long time, but now the new “low-code / no- code” tools empower them to act like creators with the capability to build professional apps to meet their business needs.


New ways of looking at the world (and your data) – modern tools like Microsoft Power BI give business users the ability to beautifully visualize data and help with the interpretation and summarizing many different aspects of the business.

Power Platform Components:


PowerBI business intelligence solution that enables users to connect, analyze and gain insight from the business data no matter where the data may be: cloud, data center, Excel spreadsheet, SharePoint, application or other systems.


Microsoft PowerApps

Microsoft PowerApps is a “citizen application development platform” – allowing individuals within a company to use drag-and-drop application components and connect them to create a unique business application. This approach is also called low-code/no-code development.

Just like PowerBI, PowerApps connects to the vast majority of business systems and databases, clearing the way to connect with already existing processes.



Flow allows users to create and automate workflows and tasks across applications and services. It improves efficiency and productivity of employees, who can automate repetitive and time-consuming business tasks.




In a world ever faster, companies need tools that allow them to implement what the business needs rapidly and by reducing the costs. Power Platform empowers your employees to achieve more.

If Power Platform hasn’t yet arrived at your organisation, it soon will do.
