2023 has been buzzing with some breakthrough announcements in Power Platform and Copilot by Microsoft. Combining Copilot which works as a companion for your work can result in some amazing outcomes – we will be discussing them in a moment.

Let’s start with Power Platform:

Power Platform is a low-code platform (with advanced features for Pro users) that allows you to build powerful applications, workflows, websites, chatbots, reports, and analytics using Microsoft Dataverse as the common data source.

You can use different apps on Power Platform, such as:

  • Power Apps: You can create custom canvas or model-driven apps that can run on any device.
  • Power Pages: make low-code websites that can match your branding and goals.
  • Power Automate: Create automated workflows that can connect to hundreds of services and apps.
  • Power BI: Create interactive insights and visualize data that can be flexibly observed across different forms of data.
  • Power Virtual Agents: Develop intelligent chatbots that can interact with customers and employees.
  • Power AI Builder: Build and use artificial intelligence (AI) models without writing any code.

Power Platform apps work together and with the Microsoft ecosystem, which includes Azure, Office 365, Dynamics 365, and others. This means the same business data can be accessed across all the apps and services.

For example, you can avoid data silos and duplication ensuring consistency and streamline your business workflows to improve collaboration and communication. There are tons of use cases but now let's talk about the most exciting Microsoft offering - Copilot.

What is Copilot?

Copilot is the new buzz of 2023 and for a good reason. Copilot combines the capabilities of Large Language Models (LLMs) including GPT-4, with Microsoft 365 applications and Microsoft Graph. This lets Copilot become the best work assistant allowing more efficiency and productivity to the users.

Now, you might wonder how to use Power Platform and Copilot together to create amazing solutions for your business?

Well, the answer is simple: you can use Copilot to write custom code for your Power Platform apps. For example, you can use Copilot to customize:

  • HTML, CSS, or JavaScript code for your Power Pages site
  • Expressions or formulas for your Power Apps app
  • Connectors or actions for your Power Automate flow
  • Topic or entities for your Power Virtual Agents bot
  • Functions or scripts for your Power BI report
What are the Benefits of Using Power Platform and Copilot for Your Business?

Power Platform and Copilot are powerful tools that can help you transform your business in many ways, such as:

  • Automating tasks and workflows that are repetitive, time-consuming, or error-prone, using Power Automate and Copilot's automation engine.
