Build never ceases to amaze. Build 2022 was no exception. There’s plenty of improvements and news services to love, for me personally so far here’s a small selection.
👉 Data Marts in Power BI
Reduce the effort of ETL and empower the Citizen Analysts of your Fusion Teams to manage complex data integration on their own terms:
👉 Next-Gen Text AND Voice Bots
Build bots that serve any channel, any time — and add voice to the engagement:
👉 Azure Container Apps
The Techie in me of course loves anything that allows me to bring ideas to life all the while reducing burden of ramping up infrastructure et al that does not add any value per se. So, seeing this going generally available is great:
👉 Turn a sketch into a Power App
While impressive, this may appear a little bit playful — however, it’s way more than just playful. This capability shows the possibilities of applied AI and what it potentially means to harness creativity and, last but not least, cater to accessibility:
Various other services are tapping into the wealth of options to use AI to boost your productivity, security and more, too — exciting times!
👉 Microsoft Power Pages
We have all built them one way or another, we have all seen all the possible issues with websites — from required security updates to deployment choices, integrating data and all it takes, eg building and exposing APIs which in itself offers plenty of things to take care of. It’s not as straight-forward as it may appear. Great to see Power Pages is taking away the pain, belonging to the rich Power Platform family!
👉 This Figma integration can make the process of going from design to scaffolding the app much faster:
👉 I would certainly not miss out on the new AI Builder capabilities for Power Platform (and Power Automate to be more precise), while we are at it:
Eg check out this document processing example using AI Builder from the Build 22 recording:
