Microsoft is not only a leader in packaged software products for business productivity, operating systems and accounting, but also in providing the development platforms for creating custom solutions.
The Microsoft Power Platform is a family of products that are seeing rapid growth. The Power Platform includes Power Apps, Power Automate, Power BI and Power Virtual agents. It features capabilities for non-coders to create solutions as well as support for developers. Many organizations, especially small business and non-profits, do not have developers on staff yet they need to automate their processes to respond to rapidly changing requirements.
Last month, the Power Platform was prominently featured at the virtual Microsoft Ignite 2020 conference. Microsoft announced Power Automate Desktop, a desktop-based robotic process automation (RPA) authoring solution for coders and non-coders to automate processes across desktop and web applications using a visual workflow editor:
The Web Recorder and Desktop Recorders track keyboard and mouse interactions, storing them as a clear automation path that can be replayed across web apps and Windows applications.
