Microsoft Announces New Capabilities On Power Platform And Azure For App Developers

At the Microsoft Ignite digital event 2020, the company announced new capabilities for app developers across its Power Platform and Azure.


In a blog post, Charles Lamanna, CVP, Low Code Application Platform, revealed how Microsoft is helping professional developers to build and deliver applications faster and more cost effectively.


In summary, the new improvements cover the following areas;


— Microsoft Power Apps and Microsoft Azure API Management. It now seamlessly works together to allow developers to scale Power Apps solutions with custom connectors hosted in Azure. Low-code developers can now build apps that leverage those connectors via Power Apps hosted in Teams with no additional licensing costs.


— Power Platform is integrated into GitHub: the place where developer teams collaborate on projects. Now, developers can create their own software development lifecycle (SDLC) workflows. Or, they can use pre-configured templates, with GitHub Actions to develop, test, and deliver Power Platform solutions.

— Microsoft Power Automate Desktop. This allows developers to automate desktop activities as part of their solutions using the new desktop client or through APIs.

The improvements are also important because there is more demand for digital solutions during this time. Professional developers need all the tools they can get to give faster results. Low-code platforms do exactly this.


Reputable companies such as T-Mobile, Toyota Motor North America (TMNA), and G&J Pepsi are using Azure services and Power Platform to meet their needs for more apps. Additionally, Microsoft hopes to close or reduce the app gap which is says is growing rapidly for developers.
