Power Platform is a Platform as a Service (PaaS) from Microsoft that enables businesses to Analyze, Act and Automate data and systems inside their businesses.

The platform is designed to be used to in everyday businesses regardless of size and sector and you do not need to be a programmer or technical expert to utilize the Power Platform.

The Power Platform provides organizations with the ability to automate business processes and create apps by using an intuitive drag-and-drop designer. The audience for the Power Platform is diverse and is often referred to as makers. Whether you are an information worker who is familiar with Microsoft Excel or a professional developer who is building an application in Node.js, the Power Platform can be used to improve productivity through a low code experience.

A powerful capability in the Power Platform is connectors. By using connectors, a maker can connect to a wide variety of applications and APIs without having to understand security schemes, such as OAuth, to establish a connection to these systems. Currently, more than 300 connectors are provided by Microsoft and third-party organizations.

With democratized access to building flows and apps, organizations might have concerns with makers connecting to unauthorized systems, which could result in the leaking of sensitive business information. For many organizations, balancing increased productivity comes with additional risks and exposure. However, Microsoft provides tools and guidance that organizations can use to find the right balance between digital transformation, allowing them to be more competitive in their industry without exposing sensitive data.
