What is Power Platform?

Power Platform is a set of tools, API's and SDK's that helps you analyze your data and build automations, applications and virtual agents with or without having to write any code.

What are Power Apps?

Power Apps is a set of tools that allows you to create applications with a drag and drop UI and easy integration of your data and 3rd party APIs through connectors.

A connector is a proxy or a wrapper around an API that allows the underlying service to talk to Microsoft Power Automate, Microsoft Power Apps, and Azure Logic Apps. It provides a way for users to connect their accounts and leverage a set of pre-built actions and triggers to build their apps and workflows. For example, you can use Twitter connector to get tweet data and visualize it in a dashboard or use Twilio connector to send your users text messages without having to be an expert in Twitter or Twilio APIs or having to write a line of code.

Check out the list of connectors for Power Apps to see all the APIs that are available. Notice Power Automate or Logic App connectors might not be the same.

What is AI Builder?

AI Builder is one of the additional features of Power Apps. With AI Builder, you can add intelligence to your apps even if you have no coding or data science skills.

What are some of the use cases for AI Builder?

You can use pre-trained models to:

  • Detect objects from images

  • Analyze your customers sentiment from feedback

  • Detect keywords from text

  • Extract specific information about your business from text
