Power Platform enables the developers to build Apps, websites, Dashboards, Chatbots and automate processes while connecting to various internal and external data sources through 1000+ built-in connectors. It not only empowers the citizen developers to rapidly build applications boosted by AI powered guidance, also there is immense capability for the Pro developers to create custom connectors for any data sources, extend the platform to leverage the capability of other services like Azure or frontend technologies.
