This year at Microsoft Build, the company’s event for developers, which will take place from today until May 26, updates and innovations will be announced in which Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the protagonist. In this context, several tools that take advantage of this technology for process automation were announced.

However, at this beginning, Microsoft Argentina held a special meeting with national and international journalists to publicize the announcements, a meeting of which TechMarkup was a part.

Today I will talk about technologies that are coming together to generate a powerful platform”, highlighted Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft in the framework of the opening talk that started this conference.

One of the points on which this edition of Build focuses is on the presentation of tools that seek to facilitate the development of apps. “We are aiming at anyone being able to develop apps. This has to do with low code”, said Ezequiel Glinsky, CTO and General Manager of Customer Success for Microsoft Latin America.

A new era of AI and automation

Tools were announced that can be easily applied and for which knowledge of code development is not required.

These types of options are found within what the company calls Power Platforms. In turn, within these platforms are the so-called power apps that include, among other options, Power Pages and Express Design, two of the star novelties that were announced at the opening of BuildGlinsky summed up.

Asked about the uses that these technologies can have, he said that they could be used to “automate all kinds of reports or tasks”, within the framework of a company. And best of all, these solutions do not require knowledge of code, so they are designed for the end user.

Microsoft Power Pages: is a low-code development and hosting platform that enables anyone to design, configure, and publish websites for desktop and mobile through a seamless visual experience.

It is known as low code to platforms that offer a development environment used to create application software through a graphical user interface. They are easy to use and are aimed precisely at users who do not have great knowledge of code.

Express Design in Power Apps: this system allows developers to upload a PDF, PowerPoint or even a freehand drawing that becomes a working app in seconds. The “magic” happens thanks to Express Design that integrates artificial intelligence, which facilitates these processes.

“The idea is that innovation can be more agile. What is sought with these products is to cover not only professional developers but also to give tools to those who do not have code knowledge. They are the developer citizens,” he explained to TechMarkupYamila Zakhem, Director of Innovation and Digital Transformation at Microsoft.

Text summary in Dynamics 365 for customer support: this tool allows users to recap complex conversations to help reduce turnaround time and streamline their work.

The common factor in all these solutions is that the resolution power of a cloud-based AI supercomputer is applied to streamline processes.

The impact of AI and AI-assisted development

Build will also delve into all the platforms and tools that will be provided to developers to help with AI development. The goal is to improve concentration on code development to streamline your work.

We want to make it easy for you to go from idea to code, from code to the cloud, and from the cloud to the world.”, underlined Nadella, before starting to address the solutions.

Among the main announcements are the following:

1. GitHub Copilot General Availability: GitHub Copilot is an AI programmer that provides comprehensive code-based programming suggestions and feedback. A technical preview of the product was first introduced last year, and now more is coming.

With the general availability of Copilot, more developers will have the opportunity to use these tools, which not only help them write code using AI, but also use it to understand that code and program better in the future.

2.Microsoft DevBox: This tool allows developers to modify a virtual machine and automatically provision it in the cloud, reducing limitations and delays. Now developers can use company solutions and the cloud infused with AI to develop applications and deploy them anywhere.

We are moving to a world where every app will be smart and update in real time”, reflected Nadella, in the framework of his opening speech.

New patterns of hybrid AI applications for the devices in the environment

As developers explore intelligent cloud solutions with multiple devices and neural processing units (NPUs), the next step is to create hybrid apps with unique capabilities.

Developers must write code for specific ecosystems, like chips. Instead of a hybrid solution, developers are forced into a walled garden, where they have to write code for each individual chipset to deliver functional applications.

A practice used in technology that seeks to keep the user within a certain platform in order to obtain data or keep information safe is known as a walled garden.

the new experience Live Share for apps in Teams takes meeting screen sharing to the next level, because it brings interactivity to the Teams meeting scene. Developers can create Live Share apps in Teams that allow participants to edit, annotate, zoom in/out, and interact with shared content in new ways.

The metaverse is creating a whole new opportunity and feedback loop for businesses. The company activates the metaverse experience at all layers of its stack, so that customers can more effectively model, automate, simulate and predict changes within their industrial environments, as well as have a greater sense of presence in the new world of hybrid work and create personalized immersive worlds to generate new opportunities for connection and experimentation.

They also stand out cloud-native applications that deliver new levels of performance as well as increased reliability, including Azure Container Apps, a serverless container hosting service that allows developers to focus on applications rather than managing the underlying cloud infrastructure.

On the other hand is Microsoft Intelligent Data Platforma new integrated platform that unifies databases, analytics and governance to enable organizations to spend more time creating value rather than integrating and managing a fragmented data set.

Microsoft Store Ads, meanwhile, is a new product designed to help developers grow their businesses. and bring your applications or video games to the right customers, at the right time.

In the coming months, developers will be able to participate in the pilot program, which will allow them to create advertising campaigns for the Microsoft Store through Microsoft Advertising.
