Thank you for watching understanding the business value of the Microsoft Power Platform. Let's take a quick moment to review what we learned today. We started off with the building blocks of Microsoft Power Platform, and how each tool can help your organization. We then dove deeper into Power Apps and learned the different types of apps you can create, and the differences between Canvas apps, model-driven apps and portals. We looked at Power Automate, and how by utilizing triggers and actions, you can automate repetitive business tasked with flows, and also the different types of flows that you can create. 

We went into Power BI and broke it down into a few components being workspaces, dashboards, reports and datasets. We covered how you can use Power Virtual Agent to create a powerful and unique chatbot for your organization, and some examples of how you could possibly use a bot. And finally, we covered basic Admin Center navigation, and how by utilizing environments and policies, you can ensure that your organization's data is always secure.

After finishing this course, you should be able to clearly explain what each tool within Power Platform can do, and provide examples of each. If you would like to learn more, I highly suggest reading Microsoft's documentation on Power Platform, and be on the lookout for whenever we publish a new course. As I mentioned earlier, I would love to hear your feedback. Please give the course a rating.
