Microsoft Power Platform
Productivity apps to extend Dynamics and serve your business
Power Platform is not one application or tool, but a collective term for Microsoft Products: Power BI, Power Apps, Power Automate and Power Virtual Agents that you can plug into Microsoft Dynamics 365, Azure Services, Office 365, and third-party platforms and applications. It’s a suite of four do-it-yourself solutions that can work together to fit your business needs:
Common scenarios where Power Platform can help:
- Lack of bandwidth, DevOp expertise, resources or budget for custom application development
- Off-the-shelf SaaS application can’t address complex workload requirements
- Enable access and edit data in legacy systems with a modern interface
- Need to extend application across, and integrate with, Microsoft Dynamics 365
Arbela and Power Platform
Power Platform empowers non-technical people to make highly technical applications, tools, and business intelligence tools.
However, for an enterprise-level business to enjoy the full benefits derived from sources like chatbots made with Power Virtual Agents or RPA (robotic process automation) apps built with Power Automate, it requires a full-scale integrations across business apps (e.g., Dynamics 365 Finance, Dynamics 365 Sales, or even non-Microsoft solutions such as SAP or Salesforce) to leverage your existing systems properly and safely. That’s where Arbela can help.
Arbela has extensive experience in building applications with Power Platform. We’re a Power Apps “Center of Excellence” and use it to create many of our Dynamics extensions and services, such as Integration Services.
Power Platform and the dataverse
Power Platform was created to empower non-developers with tools to build just about any kind of business app they need and do so within the Microsoft dataverse (formerly called Microsoft Common Data Service).
The dataverse lets you securely store and manage all data used by your business applications, such as Dynamics. It’s built on Azure, ensuring its availability, scalability, and security. Using Power Platform to create apps and pull business-critical information from the dataverse enables a business to create a unique strategy built on flexibility, and move from reactive tactics to predictive ones.
