Elements in the Power Platform

Microsoft Power Platform consists of elements to manage and develop the business. These can be design by individuals who are unaccustomed to developing, as the interface is created for non-developers. The Power Platform includes the following elements:

  • Power BI for analyzing and supporting business decisions.
  • Power Apps for developing app that support the business. 
  • Power Automate for automating business processes.
  • Power Virtual Agents for building intelligent chatbots and virtual agents for customers and employees.
The Power Platform in use: The cell phone is an example of Power Automate, the big screen is an example of Power BI and the tablet is an example of Power Apps.

Power BI

An example of a Power BI dashboard. The dashboard is easy to use on different devices e.g. the phone, tablet and computer.

Microsoft’s business intelligence (BI) solution, Power BI, is easy and safe to use. Data can quickly be collected, processed and presented, so that the BI supports business decisions. The BI can be shared with relevant parties e.g., in meetings, to empower the entire business with Power BI.

User-friendliness and Power BI

Power BI is a user-friendly tool, as it is easy to create the desired business intelligence. Moreover, it can be connected to many different platforms like Teams, Excel and Dynamics 365, and platforms from other suppliers than Microsoft. Data can be collected from many sources in parallel. The user can build models, graphs, analyses, explore business areas, dive into detail, make customized reports that suit any audience or make interactive reports with e.g., buttons, and Q&A. It is possible to print and export reports to different formats.

AI and Power BI

Power BI uses AI (Artificial intelligence) to help with structured and unstructured data. Allowing to build reports based on many different types of data sources: Structured, unstructured, text, pictures etc.

Safety and Power BI

Safety is an important element, when processing data. There are good options for administrating security settings and monitoring who shares, deletes, and creates content. Thus, ensuring that data is only shared with the desired audience and blocked for all others, making Power BI is safe to use.

Become more competitive with Power BI.

Power Apps

Power Apps can be used to make professional and intuitive apps for smartphones, tablets etc. They are good at capturing and sharing data on the fly with simple logics. – in places where access to computers and ERP is poor.

Design Power Apps so they support and optimize business processes and needs. Create better results by empowering employees with better opportunities for data collection and knowledge sharing on the fly, in the store, in the warehouse, in the production department, in the quality department and much more.

Power Apps are easy to design from scratch or from templates. Simple apps require no development experience. Advanced apps can be designed and made by developers. There are many supporting tools like AI (Artificial Intelligence), where the app can be trained to recognize e.g., photos. And the apps can be connected to many different platforms and data sources and be integrated with e.g., Dynamics 365 and other business systems. 

To the left, is the interface for building your Power App. To the right, on the phone, is the Power App in use. This app is an example of Mixed reality. The app shows a forklift in a warehouse in 3D and actual size.
An example of a Power App in use. The operator uses ERP data (e.g. Dynamics 365) to improve the quality in the plant. Before, it was difficult for the operator to access the ERP data. The operator had to note down the issue by hand and go over to the computer to create the quality order/case. The process was time consuming and had a higher risk of error. Now with the Power App, the operator can quickly and easily create a quality order/case on the fly. A how-to-guide is included in the app, so the operator has all the necessary assistance while performing the task.

Power Automate

Working with Dynamics 365
Automate workers' processes with Power Automate. In this example, the worker uses a phone, the computer and paper to perform the task. How could this process be more automated?

A virtual tool to automate repetitive processes and tasks. Using a trigger event, action is automatically executed. Create automated processes across systems, apps and services that do not normally communicate with one another. Identify bottlenecks and process optimization opportunities with automation advisor.

It is easy to design automated processes and identify process optimizations, as Power Automate has a user-friendly design interface for persons without developer experience. Use templates, AI and much more to create the best business processes and process optimizations.

This is an example of the design interface from Power Automate. It is easy to create automated processes with the many tools available in Power Automate and the user-friendly illustrations.

Power Virtual Agents

Power Virtual Agent

Build Chatbots and virtual agents

Use Power Virtual Agents to build intelligent chatbots to answer customers’ and employees’ questions. The Power Virtual Agents include natural language understanding tools, so questions do not have to be precise to obtain the correct answer but instead the customers can use their natural language in the dialog with the virtual agent. Improve the support to customers and avoid repeating information, by giving employees access to the customer’s dialog with the virtual agent.

Virtual agents are easy to build for persons without development experience. They can be created from scratch or from templates with AI, websites, ERP data and much more. Analyze the virtual agent’s performance and make them better or dive into customer conversations and create new virtual agents. Give employees more time to focus on complex cases that are too advanced for the virtual agents and create better customer experiences with quick help from the virtual agents and customer service team.

Power Virtual Agents create easy access to questions and answers via intelligent virtual agents.
