There is a lot of confusion when it comes to choosing to use Power Automate (Microsoft Flow) or Azure Logic Apps. As a result, there are a lot of opinions out there, but not many of them are objective.

In lecture 6, Kent provides a brief introduction to Microsoft Flow including where it sits within the Microsoft organization and how it is licensed.
In this demo we are going to see some of the recent topics in action! This includes the Flow Mobile app, Approvals, notifications and Maker Analytics. All illustrated in the context of a Mobile Expense solution using Microsoft Flow and SharePoint Online.
Lecture 18 contains information about Microsoft Flow's Application Lifecycle Management including the ability to package up multiple flows into a single deployable unit that allows you to promote flows from a Test environment to a Production environment.
In this lecture, Kent will introduce Logic Apps and summarize its position as an Integration Platform as a Service offering that requires an Azure subscription. He will also touch on the billing models and where Logic Apps sits within the broader Microsoft organization.
Azure Logic Apps ISE is a dedicated, capacity-based model that includes increased thresholds and limits for logic app workflows. It also includes fixed billing and VNet support. In this lecture, Kent will provide a deep dive on the capabilities found in ISE.
Azure Monitoring is a service that organizations can use to monitor Azure resources, including Azure Logic Apps. In this lecture we will see a demo that includes configuring Azure Monitor to subscribe to logic app alerts and then log an incident into ServiceNow, an IT Service Management tool.
Automated document generation represents a great opportunity for organizations to reduce manual labor. In this demo, we are going to use a SharePoint flow button to retrieve SharePoint list data and merge it with a Microsoft Word template that we can convert to PDF and send to a staffing agency.
In this lecture, we are going to talk about a new capability that was recently released by the Microsoft Flow team and that is the new Copy to my clipboard feature that allows us to copy and paste actions/scopes in order to improve productivity.
