How Power Platform, Azure, Visual Studio Code, GitHub, and Teams work seamlessly together
Power Platform, Azure, Visual Studio Code, GitHub, and Teams work together seamlessly due to the recent improvements in Power Platform. These changes have increased the speed of business application development while reducing the costs significantly.
1. Power Platform and Azure API Management
Developers can now leverage Azure Functions and Azure API Management to build custom API, which can be utilized to access cloud-hosted data sources. Additionally, developers can publish Azure API management connectors to Power Platform, which improves discovery and consumption and decreases the time to create apps by multi-folds.
2. Power Platform and GitHub
Developers can now seamlessly create Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) or use already available templates with GitHub to develop, test, and release solutions. Code-first and low-code teams can now work together and have a line of sight over the center of excellence.
3. Power Virtual Agents and Azure Bot Framework
Bot makers can now use Azure development platforms like Bot Framework Composer to develop custom bots and add them to Power Virtual Agents. Users can use the dialogs to save, host, and execute simultaneously with Power Virtual Agents bot content. Additionally, these will upgrade the application similar to custom code bots and decrease dependency on Azure hosting, deployment, and billing.
4. RPA and Power Automate
RPA capabilities of Power Automate have extended to Power Automate Desktop. Desktop activities using connectors with SAP, websites, legacy terminals, JAVA apps, and Citrix is available with Power Automate Desktop. The desktop can be leveraged to manage Azure apps, workflows, and resources through APIs. Additionally, developers can seamlessly automate manual work to develop, test, and deploy applications in record time.
