Posted: February 23, 2017  |  Categories: Microsoft Flow Other Portuguese Community PowerApps

This post is for the BizTalk Server and other Portuguese Community will be held on February 28, 2017, between 18:45 – 21:30 the XXVIII Porto.Data Community meeting at the Science and Technology Park of University of Porto (UPTEC) in Oporto.

For me it is a pleasure to return once again to this community, this time with a topic about SharePoint, PowerApps and Microsoft Flow: “SharePoint integration: How can PowerApps and Microsoft Flow give power to your SharePoint users


Every organization faces constant pressure to do more with less. While technology is often the key to operating more effectively and efficiently, cost and complexity have often prevented organizations from taking maximum advantage of the potential benefits. The growth of SaaS (software as a service) has lowered barriers – no need to deploy servers or to install and configure complex software systems. Just sign up and go.

Microsoft Flow and Microsoft PowerApps will help these people (normally business users) achieve more.

We know not every business problem can be solved with off-the-shelf solutions. But developing custom solutions has traditionally been too costly and time-consuming for many of the needs teams and departments face, especially those projects that integrate across multiple data sources or require delivery across multiple devices from desktop to mobile. As a result, too many technology needs end up unsolved or under-optimized. We piece together spreadsheets, email chains, SharePoint or/and manual processes to fill in the gaps.

PowerApps and Microsoft Flow are both 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.

In this session, we will look at these two-new offering from Microsoft: PowerApps and Flow. What are they? How can I use it? But special we will walk through and create from scratch some live demos showing how to create a new PowerApp that connects to a list stored in SharePoint Online, or how to create a new Microsoft Flow that connects to a list stored in SharePoint Online.
