New Connectors

I challenge anyone in a business workplace to look over the list of connectors and find at least 5 services that they interact with on a regular basis. There have been some great services that have joined the list of ever-growing Flow Connector list. Here are some of the newest additions to the list!connectors11.png

 

Microsoft Graph - The Microsoft Graph Security connector helps to connect different Microsoft and partner security products and services, using a unified schema, to streamline security operations, and improve threat protection, detection, and response capabilities. Learn more about integrating with the Microsoft Graph Security API at https://aka.ms/graphsecuritydocs

Projectwise - ProjectWise Share is an instantly available, easy to configure File Sharing Service that’s associated with a CONNECT Project. It provides CONNECT Edition applications, Cloud Services and Mobile applications the ability to save and/or consume files from a common cloud repository and CONNECTED Users an easy, secure way to share files with Team Members.

XooaDB - Xooa is a platform as a service (PaaS) dedicated to making private blockchain easy. With the Xooa connector, you gain an immutable ledger and blockchain infrastructure in minutes. You control who can view and participate in the ledger, and you can shift your data to your own network at any time. The Xooa connector enables users to link Microsoft Dynamics with a private blockchain ledger. Those users can control permissioned access to information stored in the ledger. The connector provides a simple and immediate facility for cross-organizational data sharing.

Flow in the News

Sometimes Flow makes its way to an article written by renowned news sources. So I like to run a web search every so often to see if I can find anything Flow-related. This week I have found a couple of cool articles that call out Flow for the versatile tool that it can be! One of the articles, written by customerthink.com, that highlights the features of MS SharePoint that make it ideal to use when handling construction project management. The article goes over some key points; High Security, Security, Third-Party Services Integration (This is where Flow is mentioned), Effortless Reports, Work Management, etc. Click Here to read the entire article!

Another article, from MSDynamicsWorld.com, goes over how to use Microsoft Flow with Dynamics 365 CRM on-premise. This article is only available to readers that are registered for their free membership, but I recommend registering for this free membership if you are a fan of Dynamics 365 because they publish great dynamics content regularly!

I hope you were able to get some useful information out of this article!

 

Thanks for reading, have a great weekend!
