In February, I got an opportunity to present a session at Global Power Platform Boot Camp – Pune. In the year 2020 the popularity of Power Platform has been ever increasing. In various conferences be it Microsoft Build, Collab365 etc. Power Platform is stealing the show. This clearly indicates that most of the companies are look to adapt the no-code with Rapid Application Development.
But what adds a feather to the Power Platform is the ability to accelerate and enhance your low-code development using Microsoft Azure Services.
The tag line provided my Microsoft in the article really caught my eye:
“Powerful alone. Better together“
Microsoft Power Platform is more than the sum of its parts. When connected to Azure and hundreds of other apps, Microsoft Power Platform enables you to quickly deliver value and clear your app backlog.
A few of the real world scenarios of leverage low-code and code-first capabilities with Azure Services:
- Invoking Conversion Service hosted in Azure Virtual Machine/On-Premise Server and using in Power Automate.
- I have written a three part series on creating and using SOAP custom connectors in Azure Logic Apps, Power Automate (Microsoft Flow), and Power Apps.
- Creating a custom Azure PowerShell Functions and Invoking it in Azure Logic Apps, Power Automate (Microsoft Flow).
- Leveraging the Power of Azure Cognitive Service in Power Platform.
- You can find a three part blog series on leveraging Text Analytics with Azure Cognitive Service with Power Platform.
- Moderating Text, Images, Videos with Azure Cognitive Service with Power Platform.
- Making Decisions with LUIS Azure Cognitive Service blog series my friend Yash Kamdar.
- Converting Text to Speech using Azure Cognitive Service blog by my friend Yash Kamdar.
These are just few of the many example that can define the tag line Powerful alone. Better together with Azure Services.
I personally had a lot of fun writing this blog-post as all the above are real life scenarios. Have you come across any unique scenario in which Azure Services have helped you make your App more powerful?
Please do not hesitate to add a comment if you have any questions and I am curious what you think!
