Microsoft touted something called the Power Platform at its big event this week — here’s what it is

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella has used his company’s strengthened position in cloud computing through services like Azure and Office 365 to drive a five-year stock rally since he took the helm. Now, he’s giving businesses the opportunity to customize cloud products as he looks for another avenue for growth.

On Monday, at the annual Microsoft Build developer conference, Nadella highlighted a collection of products called the Power Platform, which adds services for business intelligence, app development and app connectivity.
