The software helps to automate workflows, and these workflows are then known as flows. It can automate them across various applications and services without the need of a developer to work on it. The developer has to specify the task and schedule a time for it, and it will happen on its own.

Bot Framework: Microsoft Bot Framework is highly suitable for modern-day web applications.

Developers can integrate these into their websites and web applications to improve their functionality. 

PowerApps: PowerApps is a unique platform for developing websites and applications. It brings together a set of tools that were previously considered as high-end development tools and were therefore not accessible to all developers. With PowerApps, however, developers can easily access these tools and use them in their web applications. 

Nintex Workflow: Nintex is a workflow automation solution popularly used in various enterprises. It supports agile development and ensures that projects are finished in much less time than usual. However, by making the work more efficient, it does not compromise on its quality.

The job of a SharePoint developer involves a lot of responsibilities. Today, however, most companies like to hire someone who can work with many things at once and can contribute to the firm in more than one way.
