Microsoft Low-Code/No-Code tools

Microsoft’s low-code/no-code reinforces the tech company’s focus on securing a position as the office standard for end-user process automation tools, for themselves.

And, more important, all this is done without even sacrificing features that developers alike can appreciate.

Microsoft continues to improve Power Platform

Out of all the major tech companies that provice low-code/no-code tools, Microsoft seems to offer, by far, the most robust package.

This could be due to the toolset’s ability to authenticate, as well as communicate with various data sources, across a wide range of Microsoft 365 services.

During the Build conference that took place last month, Microsoft stated that they won’t end the process of enhancing their Power Platform suite of tools.

Company officials added that their main goal is to extend the platform’s capabilities for customers in the Microsoft 365 environment.

Microsoft continues to push Power Platform, as well as low-code/no-code tools, as the de go-to development platform for all users that are working with Microsoft 365 products and services.

Interestingly enough, the new announcements actually help improve the platform, by facilitating collaboration between amateur and professional developers, in an organization.

According to experts, these features will be critical for companies, as they emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic and are looking at a much more hybrid work-style in the future.

Microsoft integrates Power Platform with Microsoft 365 Developer Plan

The tech giant plans to make a move that is meant to acknowledge the value around the low-code/no-code platform, as well as the importance of connecting amateur and professional developers.

Thus, Microsoft will be integrating the Power Platform and Power Apps tools into the overall Microsoft 365 Developer Plan.

This separate, stand-alone Power Apps Developer Plan and learning path, will further help the above-mentioned developers to build, test, and also experience the use of Power Apps and automation flows in this plan.

This solution has been dubbed by Microsoft as fusion development, and the company is offering a Power Platform Fusion Development learning path, via Microsoft Learn.

Know that the Microsoft 365 Developer service is a renewable one, with a free 90-day subscription to Microsoft 365 E5.

This includes over 25 licenses that permit the creation of a sandbox development area, for coding various solutions.
