When to Use What: Choosing the Right Tool for Multiple Business Process and/or Automation NeedsMike Fitzmaurice
Power Automate is a great fit for many automation problems. But there’s more than one kind of automation problem, and some business process solutions require more than just automation. Some automation problems need transaction support. Others need to manage content. Some involve data harvesting. Or systems administration. Or data synchronization. Different use cases need different types of tools. There’s also a whole class of applications that focus on much more than automated activity, factoring in roles, assets, user interfaces, security, task logistics, strategy and tactics, and more. We’ll talk about that, too. This session is all about making sure you use a hammer to pound nails and a screwdriver to twist bolts; we’ll mention some third-party offerings in addition to Microsoft-delivered tech, but we won’t play favorites.
