Ignite announcements:


  • Democratizing RPA: At Microsoft Ignite, we are announced the availability of Robotic Process Automation (RPA) via Microsoft Power Automate Desktop to Windows 10 users – at no additional cost. RPA for Windows allows users to record actions across apps and browsers and replay them to automate repetitive tasks which will expand the digital workforce’s ability to automate legacy tasks that can slow down their workflows.
  • Low code programming language for everyone: Microsoft Power Fx, the textual computer language for logic customization across the Power Platform. With its foundations in Excel, and current formula expression language for Canvas app components in Power Apps, Microsoft Power Fx will bring true consistency to the Power Platform. Microsoft plans to open-source Power Fx on Github, making it available for everyone.
  • Enhanced manageability and governance for IT Pros: At Microsoft Ignite, we will articulate how IT Governance and Administration (public preview) for Power Platform provides organizations the ability for IT Leaders, administrators, and professionals to manage and scale the growth of low-code with industry leading security and data controls, in an interface that makes it easy to manage.
