Products That Are Related To Microsoft Access

Following are a list of products that are related to Microsoft Access and Office that I haven't posted about before but its possible I will post about in the future. The quick summary on the products comes from Microsoft itself.

Power Apps  and the Common Data Service

A development environment on the desktop to build mobile and tablet and web forms that connect to your systems and create new data. Typically your data will reside in the cloud in something like a Azure SQL table or a sharepoint list.
Build apps without writing code (not sure that's a feature)
Publish and use on web and mobile

Power BI
Power BI transforms your company's data into rich visuals for you to collect and organize so you can focus on what matters to you.

Power Query for Excel
Microsoft Power Query is an Excel add-in that simplifies data discovery, access, and collaboration. It's provided as part of Microsoft Power BI self-service solution.

Microsoft Graph  
Don't be fooled by the name, its purpose is a unified API endpoint, for accessing data, intelligence, and insights coming from the Microsoft cloud. And just for reference about why Microsoft may have used the term Graph, see Graph for Facebook I mainly bring this up so you don't get excited about this being part of the next big thing to create an Access graph.
