Microsoft PowerApps Power Automate Consulting
With exponential growth of mobile devices, it has become an absolute necessity for businesses to provide a solution that can run on desktop/mobile devices. Building an app which can run on a mobile device is a difficult task that requires programming knowledge. However, with PowerApps we can build apps that can run on multiple devices (such as mobiles, laptops, and tablets) with zero programming knowledge.
What is Power Platform?
Power Platform is a low code development software as a service (SaaS) platform which can be used to build end to end business solutions by connecting Power Apps, Power Automate, Power BI and Power Virtual Agents together with Office 365, Dynamics 365, Azure, and hundreds of other apps.
The main components of the Power Platform are:
- Power Automate
- Power BI

Power Platform has 275+ connectors that helps you connect to different data sources. You can use on-premise data gateway to connect to on-premise data (data that isn’t in the cloud).
What is Microsoft PowerApps?
Power Apps is a low code/no code application platform that allows enterprises to digitize business operations by easily building a line of business applications and customizing existing Office 365 and Dynamics 365 applications. This helps you to build custom apps that your users can run in a browser, on a mobile device as a native app, or you can embed it in Power BI, Teams, or SharePoint.
Power Apps allows us to bring the data into your app from different data sources using connectors. PowerApps has connectors for popular cloud data sources, including SharePoint Online, Salesforce, Azure, Amazon Redshift etc. It can connect to on-premise data sources such as SharePoint Server, SQL Server, and so on, by using on-premises data gateway.
Power Apps can be used to create three type of apps:
- Canvas apps
- Model-driven apps
What is Microsoft Power Automate?
Power Automate allows you to create automated workflows to do a certain task by connecting to various data sources such as SharePoint, Salesforce, SQL Server, etc. It helps your business users to avoid repetitive tasks and saves their time.
AI Builder & Ui Flow (RPA)
AI Builder is a new capability in Power Platform that allows you to add intelligence to your apps. AI Builder is based on model types that you can choose according to your business requirements. AI Builder consists of two types of models, custom AI models and prebuilt AI models.
Prebuilt AI models are ready to use, and you need not build or train the model yourself to use it. An example of this can be a business card reader, language detection, sentiment analysis, text recognition, and so on.
