10 Power Platform Features you must know about

The ‘Power Platform’ is a collective term for three Microsoft products: Power BI, PowerApps and Power Automate (previously known as Flow). Combined, these three low-code/no-code capabilities provide users the direct ability to quickly and adaptively craft forms, workflows, and reports, that can improve market agility, reduce the load on IT support of vendors, and empower users to create their own unique solutions that are best suited for both the work style of a team as well as their desired timelines

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.
