I think the price points for Power Automate are very good in comparison to other products in the category. The advice that I would have for people considering the solution is that it is better for use with multiple, smaller projects and solutions. If that is what you want to accomplish then Microsoft Power Automate is a good target product. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate this solution overall as somewhere between a seven or an eight. Probably closer to a seven.

My advice to people who are considering implementing Microsoft Power Automate is that I think it is a really great tool that allows you to get started quickly on prototyping and integrating solutions that will simplify some redundant tasks. The best idea would be to just get started with it and experience what it can do. The biggest lesson we have learned from using Microsoft Power Automate is that there is just so much that is possible to automate. Thinking about the potential scope of what the tool can do, we now look at a problem and think that maybe we can use Power Automate to resolve the issue. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate Microsoft Power Automate as a nine-out-of-ten at this point. To become a ten they would just need some more maturity with the test and production environments and making things more production-ready. Also, some additional guided help would valuable for new users to orient them and get started building their own applications. But other than that, it is perfect.

Power Automate is a new solution from Microsoft. It provides business workflow features, application features, and RPA features. It's an all-in-one solution and if the customer already uses Microsoft Office 365 they can easily integrate it with Microsoft products. If you want to integrate it with other platforms, such as virtual solutions it's also a good choice. Overall, it is a good solution, but there is still a feature gap when compared to other RPA solutions. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Power Automate is a new solution from Microsoft that provides business workflow features, application features, and RPA features. It is an all-in-one solution and if customers already use Microsoft Office 365 then they can directly and easily integrate it. Vertical integration is also a good choice because Power Automate makes it very simple to do. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

We suspect that Microsoft is going to invest pretty heavily in this area. It might be strategic to start using Power Automate now because I suspect it will develop a lot of features over the next few years. The suitability of this solution depends on how complex the processes are. My advice to anybody who is considering Power Automate is to make sure that it has the capabilities to support that, particularly versus a more established player like Nintex or AgilePoint. I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
