On this training you will learn the basic concepts for Microsoft and Azure Cloud to understand the concepts and features to design and plan your Power Automate Implementation for your Business. Microsoft Power Platform is a line of business intelligence, app development, and app connectivity software applications. Microsoft developed the Power Fx low-code programming language for expressing logic across the Power Platform. It also provides integrations with GitHub and Teams. Power Automate is a versatile automation platform that integrates seamlessly with hundreds of apps and services. Power Automate can be used to get notifications, synchronize files, approve requests, collect data, and much more.
Microsoft has acquired Clear Software, a provider of integration and business-process products with an emphasis on SAP and Oracle connectivity. Microsoft announced the Clear Software purchase on October 22 and is not disclosing the price paid. Microsoft officials said they believe Clear Software's API access and back-end systems knowledge will strengthen the integration between the Power Platform and outside systems of record. Clear Software's products offer more than 100 pre-built abstractions for SAP and Oracle and can be customized for each organization's needs. Microsoft's Power Platform is a set of low-code/no-code tools for "citizen developers" (non-professional programmers) which includes Power Automate, Power Apps and Power BI. "We want to make it easier for customers to integrate a variety of systems when they build business applications with Microsoft Power Platform. The Clear Software integrations will make it a more seamless experience to use Power Apps and Power Automate to build business applications and automations over complex systems like SAP and Oracle," said Stephen Siciliano, Partner General Manager of Power Automate, in the blog post about the announcement.
Power Automate is Microsoft's platform for streamlining repetitive workflows -- you may remember it under its original name: Microsoft Flow. The market for these robotic process automation (RPA) tools is hot right now, so it's no surprise that Microsoft, too, is doubling down on its platform. Only a few months ago, the team launched Power Automate Desktop, based on its acquisition of Softomotive, which helps users automate workflows in legacy desktop-based applications, for example. After a short time in preview, Power Automate Desktop is now generally available. The real news today, though, is that the team is also launching a new tool, the Process Advisor, which is now in preview as part of the Power Automate platform.
This year at Microsoft Ignite, we are announcing a set of new capabilities across Power Platform that enable business users (Citizen Developers), business analysts, IT admins, and professional developers to build and deliver applications faster and more cost-effectively. Be sure to watch our featured sessions--What's next for the Microsoft Power Platform and Driving a Data Culture with Power BI for a deep dive into these capabilities, as well the news story and featured session for Dynamics 365 for a comprehensive view of innovation across Microsoft Business Applications that can drive innovation and customer excellence across the organization. Since first introducing RPA in Microsoft Power Automate at Ignite in 2019, hundreds of thousands of organizations have adopted Power Automate and are now automating billions of actions each month. In 2020, we introduced Power Automate Desktop, which extended automation capabilities in Power Automate to on-premises processes and local desktop tasks. Today, we are continuing this momentum by announcing that Power Automate Desktop, which offers RPA capabilities that easily automate time-consuming manual work, will be available to Windows 10 users at no additional cost.
Take productivity to new heights by automating business processes across your entire organization. Microsoft Flow is now Power Automate--a versatile automation platform that integrates seamlessly with hundreds of apps and services. For example, with a few clicks capture tweets and add them as leads in Dynamics 365, subscribers in Mailchimp, and more... Create, use, and share automated approval workflows to quickly respond to and process requests, from time off and travel plans to documents and sales opportunities. Make decisions in your workflow, like running an action only when certain conditions are met. Power Automate lets you securely connect to on-premises data and cloud based services, so you can make the most of the data you already have.
