One of my main goals last year in Portugal was to introduce PowerApps and Microsoft Flow in several Portuguese communities: SharePoint, CRM, .NET and Integration communities. Finally, I was also invited to presented that session on Integration Monday community – I think it was the perfect scenario to deliver one last time that session – don’t get me wrong I will still be talking about these topics in the future but with different demos and context – and you can watch the video recording of the previous session here: How can PowerApps and Microsoft Flow allow your Power Users to quickly build Enterprise Mobile Apps.

That was the eighth session that I deliver for that community:

About my session

Session Name: How can PowerApps and Microsoft Flow allow your Power Users to quickly build Enterprise Mobile Apps

PowerApps and Microsoft Flow Session

Session Overview: Every organization faces constant pressure to do more with less. While technology is often the key to operating more effectively and efficiently, cost and complexity have often prevented organizations from taking maximum advantage of the potential benefits. The growth of SaaS (software as a service) has lowered barriers – no need to deploy servers or to install and configure complex software systems. Just sign up and go.

Microsoft Flow and Microsoft PowerApps will help these people (normally business users) achieve more.

We know not every business problem can be solved with off-the-shelf solutions. But developing custom solutions has traditionally been too costly and time-consuming for many of the needs teams and departments face, especially those projects that integrate across multiple data sources or require delivery across multiple devices from desktop to mobile. As a result, too many technology needs end up unsolved or under-optimized. We piece together spreadsheets, email chains, SharePoint or/and manual processes to fill in the gaps.

PowerApps and Microsoft Flow are both aimed squarely at these gaps. They give people who best understand their needs and challenges the power to quickly meet them, without the time, complexity and cost of custom software development.

In this session, we will look at these two new offering from Microsoft: PowerApps and Flow. What are they? How can I use it? But special we will walk through and create from scratch some live demos showing how to create Enterprise Mobile Application that easily connects with all your enterprise platforms like Office365, SharePoint Online, Dynamic CRM, on-premise SQL, Social Networks and much more and also how they can automate some common tasks using the new Microsoft Flow.
