Microsoft Power Automate makes it possible to grow your business productivity by automating repetitive, time-consuming tasks. Power Automate provides a better way to get things done across your organization through digital and robotic process automation (RPA).
At Build 2020, we announced the acquisition of Softomotive, the maker of WinAutomation. WinAutomation is a leading low-code RPA offering, used by thousands of customers with thousands of features built over 15 years. It has a rich desktop-based IDE for customers to build out powerful automation over their applications and is available for free for all Power Automate RPA customers. In 2020 release wave 2, we'll update the offering to combine the best of WinAutomation with the cloud-based AI Builder and connector-based capabilities in automated flows. This new version will offer customers a way to automate everything from Office apps to legacy terminal applications that haven't been updated in decades.
In addition, there are further enhancements coming to automated flows running in the cloud, including richer automation and approval experiences in other offerings from Microsoft Teams to Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations. Power Automate is the world's first cloud-native automation platform that can meet the needs of end users and developers alike, spanning from their PCs to planet-scale services running in Azure.
