There are some products like Microsoft Flow to automation in work
Azure Integration Services, Azure Logic Apps, Microsoft Flow, and more
or many other products,
or building the custom application with programming.
I want to know how do you choose Microsoft Flow.
to recommend more.
As Microsoft Flow works so well with SharePoint, PowerApps, Planner, Forms and email as well as having over 100 other connectors, it is the best solution for people like me who are effectively power users rather than developers. We can now do so much very quickly that used to need to be sent out to our development teams or an external contractor. So my work as an intranet & SharePoint manager uses all these applications for everything and Flow ties them all together. I wouldn't use any of the others you mention because I don't know them.
My answer to this would be the business requirements dictates the solution. I see so many people start with the tool and run around looking for a problem to solve which is backwards. When you're a hammer everything looks like a nail. You need to ask questions to ultimately make an informed decision about the chosen tool to solve a business problem. Some are much more obvious than others (e.g. I use SharePoint Online and need a simple approve process). If you give a requirement to a server-side developer, guess what you will get as a solution, a server-side custom developed solution. If you ask a business user, you will get an Excel-based solution or InfoPath because its what people know. The following questions comes to mind:
For example if my client gives me a business problem and they are primarily in Office 365, sure I will likely look to Flow, PowerApps, SharePoint, etc to solve the need. However, I have cilents that use SmartSheet over MS tools, and other clients that are heavy into Slack and it wouldn't be cost-effective to move to MS for that one need.
You need to review what Flow can do and offer, and determine (given the environment and available tools and skills of users involved) if that is the right solution.
Nice @RobElliott , thank you for your reply.
Yes, I like the Microsoft Flow with many connectors.
for developers, managers, users.
thank you again for your comment
Nice @dougallen , thank you for your reply.
Yes, I want to ask some questions, about what is the business requirement? and all.
and they are changing fast,
Therefore, I hear more what they thought, what they want.
