About this course

The way we do work today is fundamentally different than just a few years ago. Work happens on our phones, tablets and laptops everywhere we go: on manufacturing floors, in airplanes or at customer meetings. And yet, the apps we use to do business have been slow to keep pace with employee demand. Not every business problem can be solved with off-the-shelf solutions, but developing custom solutions has traditionally been too costly and time consuming.

PowerApps, CDS, and Microsoft Flow are 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.

If you're a business analyst or business expert, that want to create apps and automate workflows to solve business needs, then this course is for you. In this course, you will learn how to your existing knowledge and apply them to improve business process in your organization. You will learn how to create apps that solve specific business needs, without writing code or struggling with integration issues. You will learn how to focus on your data and business processes, and leverage the capabilities of PowerApps, CDS, and Flow to deliver solution that works across phones, tablets and browsers.

What you'll learn

  • How PowerApps, Flow, and Common Data Services are used and where they fit in solving business scenarios
  • Generate business app that works on phones, tablets, and browsers
  • Connect to multiple data sources, such as a list in SharePoint, an Excel table on OneDrive, a SQL database and more.
