Power Platform combines PowerApps, PowerBI, and PowerAutomate (formerly known as Flow) into a single business application platform – providing quick and easy app building and data insights. Each component of the Microsoft Power Platform is built on the the Common Data Service for Apps. Each component is dynamic by itself, but even more powerful when combined.
The Microsoft Power platform brings all data together into a common data model.
PowerApps is a suite of apps, services, connectors and data platform that provides a rapid application development environment to build custom apps. Furthermore, apps built using PowerApps have a responsive design, and can run seamlessly in browser or on mobile devices. It is Microsoft’s no-code development platform.
PowerBI is a business analytics service. It aims to provide interactive visualizations and business intelligence capabilities with an interface simple enough for end users to create their own reports and dashboards.
PowerAutomate is cloud-based software that allows employees to create and automate workflows and tasks across multiple applications and services without help from developers. Once a flow is built, it can be managed on the desktop or through an app on a mobile device
The combination of Apps, Automate and BI makes it possible to create very powerful applications. When you use other Microsoft services, integration and use of data is easy, but it is also possible to integrate with external applications.
