Extend Work 365 with PowerApps Automate

Work 365 is built on the PowerApps platform as a native Dynamics Application. With Automatic provisioning capabilities changes to licenses from within the Dynamics 365 application get provisioned automatically to the Microsoft Partner Center and distributors like TechData and Synnex.

This also means that your end customers who use the Work 365 self-service portal can add or reduce the number of licenses and have them provisioned directly with the providers.

Changes to licenses from the Portal get synced back to Work 365 and then provisioned automatically. From a service standpoint, it is very important that these provisioning changes are tracked and managed.
