To summarize, the release of Power Automate Desktop along with the features, functionalities, and improvements that Microsoft has implemented since wave 2 began have propelled the tool from niche use cases to being a strong competitor within the RPA marketplace. Improvements such as automation through “action recording” increased the usability. This allows for a higher level of employee understanding and adoption of the tool. Features such as database, teams, and SharePoint integrations (Microsoft Connectors) have increased the appeal of Power Automate. Functionality such as the Chat bot assistant and premade parameter builder allow non-technical users more flexibility and ease in the way they automate their tasks. Additionally, highly technical users will have a greater variety of tools at their disposal.
Microsoft’s Power Automate Software has come a long way since it was introduced in December 2019. The most recent addition of the Desktop version serves to further improve, build upon, and integrate with Microsoft services. The continuous updates and support for the software as well as the high degree of communication from the developers serves to inspire a large degree of confidence in the current and future capabilities of the Power Automate product.
