  • Connect Your Data: Integrate your business-specific data with the chosen model. Allowing AI to learn and make predictions based on your unique operations.
  • Tailor and Train (for Custom Models): While pre-built models offer a quick start, AI Builder allows you to fine-tune custom models for enhanced performance.
  • Harness AI-Powered Insights: The results generated by your AI models can be seamlessly integrated within your Power Platform solutions, creating intelligent automations and data-driven applications.

Benefits for the Technically Inclined
