Power Automate is a key part of the Power Platform - Microsoft's industry-leading low-code development platform (LCDP). With Power Automate, we can rapidly build enterprise-grade workflow and automation solutions that eliminate repetitive tasks and streamline business processes across the enterprise (and beyond).

What is Power Automate?

Power Automate is an end-to-end cloud automation platform that's used to create workflows that automate business processes. Whether you need to automate routine tasks within a department or create more elaborate interdepartment or cross-company process flows, Power Automate provides a one-stop shop for all your automation requirements.

Power Automate serves as the glue component of the Power Platform, working tirelessly in the background to coordinate activities between both systems and process stakeholders. These workflow processes can be:

  • Scheduled to run a set times/intervals (via a configurable timer).
  • Triggered by events such as the arrival of an email message, a file being created, or the creation or update of a record in a database table.
  • Called interactively from apps (e.g., Power Apps) or via the Microsoft Copilot.
Once a process trigger is identified, we can use the AI-powered Flow Designer tool to lay out your business logic step-by-step using a blend of conditional logic (built using Power Fx), loops, and callouts to business systems using pre-built connectors. The visual interface of the Flow Designer tool makes it easy for our process analysts to work closely with your team to develop and test the workflow logic.

One of the really powerful features of Power Automate is its best-in-class support for process and task mining. Even if your current processes are manual, we can use Process Mining to analyze your existing processes to collect performance metrics. From there, we can tap into the built-in AI features of Power Automate to create visual process maps, identify bottlenecks, and generate suggestions for process improvement.
