Why stop at automated document approvals and digital forms? In this session, Steve will show you how to get near-real time information from the shop floor of your business into the Power Platform and Teams.

Learn how to start with rapid proof of concepts and what the formula is to scale up securely, and allow layering of machine learning and real-time access to data. Making a low-code app so an employee can do daily checks will never seem the same again
