What is Power Platform?

Power Platform is the name for a growing group of applications designed to enhance business intelligence and simplify process automation.

Linking products across the Microsoft 365 suite, Power Platform is one of the fastest-growing Microsoft product areas for its capability to deliver fast and cost-effective transformation of business processes.

Currently, Power Platform is made up of  Power BI for data visualisation; Power Apps for low-code, connected apps; Power Apps Portals for web and portal-based interactions; and Power Automate for linking applications and automating workflows.

Expanding functionality

Power BI and Power Apps can be used with standalone data sources, the Power Platform applications hold the most business potential when combined with other Microsoft products such as Dynamics 365, SharePoint or solutions using Common Data Source.

Together, they can deliver advanced functionality to help your organisation, increasing productivity while reducing effort.
