When: July 22nd 6pm PST


Data Flows in Power Apps by Olena Grischenko (30 minutes)
No-code integration what? No-code data migration why? There are things that aren’t easy to un-learn in the development world. System integration and data migration are two of the most difficult parts of any business application projects. Can we solve it with No-code? Yes, we can, it a very easy and cost-effective way. You could ask Why? Why do we need new tools in the space where we solve problems in the same common way for many years? This talk is useful for developers as well as for people who don’t use code. Learn about new possibilities of Power Platform which nobody talks about even though they do exist. Learn about simple and not so simple transformations from CSV, text files, SQL to Dataverse. Become a new Power Platform data integration superhero!
