Power Automate patterns and best practices with Doctor Flow

In this session, Doctor Flow aka ‘Serge Luca’ will illustrate several best practices for using Power Automate in real business enterprise and mission-critical projects. Having worked in 15 Power Automate projects during the last 3 years, Serge has identified several limitations that can have a huge impact in your projects, even though the tool is easy to start with.

Common Pitfalls with PowerAutomate

Laura Rogers, MVP, IW Mentor


In Power Automate, do you end up spending hours of your life, working through what seemed like something simple in a flow? Microsoft has made many improvements over the years so that this happens less often, but there are still little annoyances and pitfalls that it helps to know about. There are a few important tips to know about so that you can save time, and design flows in the most efficient way. In this session, learn how to avoid such issues, like surprise loops in your flow and unnecessary flow triggers, and some error handling will be covered as well.





EST 2:25pm - 3:10pm / CET 8:25pm - 9:10pm

Power Automation with Governance! Power Governance with Automation!

Matthias Einig, MVP, Rencore & Bjoern Erkens, Rencore



As organizations continue to embrace automating business processes via a growing portfolio of tools, it becomes increasingly difficult for you to manage the rapid growth of workflows on both the platform and end-user level. In the end, you give up, facing the inevitable sprawl of unused and forgotten Flows, obscure automated actions, and unknown journeys for corporate data.

However, it doesn't need to be like that. There is a way to scale Power Automate governance effectively and stay in control.

In this session, Matthias and Bjoern share lessons learned from the field as well as many good practices to help manage and govern your Power Automate flows on a large scale without compromising on features or usability.






EST 3:15pm - 3:45pm / CET 9:15pm - 9:45pm
