Welcome to AlanPs1.io

This blog documents some of what I do every day. If you are a Sys Admin, an IT Pro or a DevOps Professional you might just find it useful. The content you will find should suit the beginner, intermediate users as well as advanced users. Each post has some nuggets of joy. I hope you find some content that is useful.

The content is mostly relating to Office 365, PowerShell and Power Platform such as Flow & PowerApps. I will be sharing tech tips and tutorials mostly linked to Office 365 administration and showing you ways to automate business processes using Flow, PowerApps and PowerShell. My focus lies mainly with Office 365 and I use the necessary tools to work with data from the various Office 365 APIs and Microsoft Graph etc. You will see me use PowerShell and the Power Platform to harness data and hopefully do something useful with it. Then, as time goes on I should be able to introduce more Azure related content as my discovery of all things Azure progresses.
