Microsoft has officially announced that Microsoft Power Apps and Microsoft flow will be generally available tomorrow. The services are designed to help transform business processes without the need for programming skills, and will be available in 42 languages around the world.
According to Microsoft, PowerApps and Flow will be included with Dynamics 365 and in the subscriptions of millions of Office 365 Enterprise and Business Premium and Essentials users. PowerApps and Flow also join Microsoft Power BI, for a "power trio" which will allow developers and businesses to get things done which might have otherwise required a vast knowledge of programming skills. In the words of Microsoft, the "power trio" harness the power of the Microsoft Cloud, are designed to work together, and are simple to get started with:
- Microsoft PowerApps – rapidly build web and mobile business applications without coding
- Microsoft Flow – automate business processes through simple configuration
- Microsoft Power BI – analyze and visualize the data that drives your business
In a statement, James Phillips, corporate vice president of Microsoft Business Applications, Platform and Intelligence expressed the simplicity of the tools:
But don’t let the simplicity fool you — these services are incredibly powerful, and by harnessing the power of the Microsoft Cloud, we believe they will allow our partners and customers to transform their business processes in a way that was previously too difficult, too costly or both... “In fact, we’re already seeing it happen."
