One of the great ways to extend the Dynamics 365 capabilities even further in your organisation is through connecting to Microsoft Power Platform, which includes PowerApps, Power BI and Flow.
PowerApps is part of the Power Platform, Microsoft’s platform for extending and managing business data and processes, which includes Power BI and Flow. The platform connects easily with Dynamics 365, Office 365, and over 200 third-party applications.
With PowerApps, organisations can easily build business apps for internal use, with no prior coding experience necessary, and run these apps on the web and multiple mobile platforms – iOS, Android and Windows, reducing work hours and development costs.
Businesses who already leverage the out-of-the-box functionality of the Dynamics 365 platform to connect and share data and operations across the organisation can benefit from the extended capabilities PowerApps offers for mobile business use.
For example, PowerApps can improve business workflows by uniting different tasks in one place for each group within your organisation. It can be used to capture and share data with team members and groups remotely, trigger actions and workflows, and provide flexibility.
Power BI is a suite of business analytics tools that deliver insights throughout your organization. Connect to hundreds of data sources, simplify data prep, and drive ad hoc analysis. Produce beautiful reports, then publish them for your organization to consume on the web and across mobile devices. Everyone can create personalized dashboards with a unique, 360-degree view of their business. And scale across the enterprise, with governance and security built-in.
A great example is the creation of timesheets and team roles for project management via PowerApps. This app developed with PowerApps can then be easily accessed into the project accounting module in Dynamics 365.
Many other PowerApps applications can benefit your business. PowerApps delivers simple or complex apps depending on the functionality required for departments and operations, e.g. production orders, supplier management, IT maintenance, compliance, and so on. All these apps link to Dynamics 365 role-based and industry modules as needed.
PowerApps can be easily combined with Power BI and Flow from the Power Platform suite. The extension to Power BI leverages data analytics insights to make sense of data for Dynamics 365.
Similarly, the combination of PowerApps and Flow provides the ability to create actions and processes automatically. Flow enables powerful workflow automation directly in your apps with a no-code approach that connects to hundreds of popular apps and services.
