Power Automate vs Azure Logic Apps, which tool should I use?
What you'll learn
- Students will learn about Microsoft Flow and Azure Logic Apps and the differences between the two services.
- Obtain prescriptive guidance on scenarios where one technology is a better fit over another
- Understand the different security and governance capabilities in each technology
- Use this content to make informed decisions on which tool you should use
- No prior development in Microsoft Flow or Azure Logic Apps is required, but prior exposure to one of these technologies is suggested.
- To follow along in the Microsoft Flow demos, students will require access to a Microsoft Flow through an Office 365 or Dynamics 365 plan. Alternatively, a free trial can be used.
- To follow along in the Azure Logic Apps demos, students will require access to Azure Logic Apps through a Microsoft Azure subscription. Alternatively a free trial can be used.
- Previous experience with Office 365 or Microsoft Azure is encouraged but not required.
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 this course we will deep dive on the feature sets of both technologies and then provide prescriptive guidance through real-world examples.
