Do you have business users who are routinely executing repetitive tasks, but just don’t have the developer resources to allocate to an automation project?  Power Automate, one part of the Microsoft Power Platform, is a great way to empower users to create their own automated processes without the intimidating learning curve of a development environment, language syntax, and getting up to speed with development concepts.  Power Automate abstracts away the syntax and programming nuts-and-bolts of typical software development and gives users a simple drag-and-drop interface to create their own processes.  Anyone who can think through the steps of the process can create a Power Automate flow!

Power Automate enables non-developers to quickly create their own flows to streamline business processes that otherwise may not bubble up to justify assigning developers to them.  Everyone wants their business users to seek out efficiencies within their departments, but frequently the tools are lacking or there is no way to move forward with solutions, so the enthusiasm for change suffers.  Power Automate is that tool that can take those ideas and move them to fruition (and savings.)

Some examples of the possibilities include automating data entry into web or desktop applications, printing documents, organizing files and folders, reading from and writing to Excel sheets, running SQL Server queries, FTPing files, connecting applications in the Dynamics 365 or Office 365 spaces, plus a whole lot more.  The possibilities are limited only by your imagination.
