Why did I write this course?
I wrote this course out of frustration! You can’t go to a Microsoft conference these days when the question of which tool should I use doesn’t come up. I have no problem with people asking the question, but I grew tired of the same watered-down answers coming from the respective Product Groups about why their tool is better. Now, I have friends on both the Flow and Logic Apps teams, so I can’t blame them. After all, if you work for Coke, are you going to recommend Pepsi? Not likely.
I thought with my experience as a Program Manager on the Flow team and having been an Azure Integration MVP (and BizTalk MVP before that), I was in a good position to build a course on this subject that provides objective guidance on each tool’s strengths and opportunities that come with that tool.
What will I learn in this course?
This course contains over 5.5 hours of content. I never intended it to be this long but I wanted to get deep into details and really demonstrate some of the unique capabilities of each tool. More specifically, the agenda looks like this:
- Course Introduction
- Microsoft Flow Features
- PowerApps and CDS Integration
- Flow Maker Portal (Templates, Connectors)
- Microsoft Flow Approvals
- Microsoft Flow Maker Analytics
- Microsoft Flow Buttons
- Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)
- Admin and Governance
- Azure Logic Apps Features
- Azure Portal (Templates, Connectors)
- Editing Experiences
- Enterprise Integration Pack
- Inline Code
- Integration Service Environment
- Azure Integration Services
- API Management
- Azure Monitoring
- Organizational Fit and how does the design of your organization impacts which tool(s) you use
- Microsoft Flow Solution Demos (2 deep dives)
- Azure Logic Apps Solution Demos (2 deep dives)
- Declaring the Winner
- Course Wrap-up and Additional resources
One area that I feel is really important in this course is the Governance models that exist for each tool. This becomes a very important consideration when levering one tool over another, in part due to the significant differences in approaches.
I spent a lot of time in demos providing you with deep exposure to the features. I will also compare and contrast the different approaches used by each team as they try to solve that specific problem.
So whether your are in the Microsoft Flow camp or the Azure Logic Apps camp, I am confident that you will learn something new.
