Power Pages: Portals Reborn
What Is Power Pages

Power Pages aims to empower organizations to build business-centric, data-powered, modern and secure interactive sites and portals. Some extremely exciting features within Power Pages, is its ability for portal users to utilize Dataverse, but through various security assignments and identity providers. This is achieved through the ability to register/sign-in with these identify providers such as Google, Azure AD and many other 3rd party providers and associate appropriate web roles.

Power Pages Features
With Power Pages simple design interface, users can begin creating secure and date driven websites in just minutes. The Design Studio offers drag-and-drop capabilities to include headers, images, reports and much more on your site. Users can also style the site with customizable themes, so portals and sites can align with company branding when needed. The force behind Power Pages is Dataverse. Users can manage Dataverse data such as Tables, Forms and business data directly through the Design Studio. Users can also render Power Pages sites to accommodate various devices such as laptops, tablets and mobiles.
If you are looking for a generic type of site, look no further than the Power Pages Templates Hub. Here you can create new sites based of pre-built templates and adjust them according to your requirements as needed. This proves to be incredibly useful as the building blocks have already been placed.
Lastly, Power Pages includes intensive security models that ensures your site is secured from both a data and user level. This means you can control the visibly of your site, determining whether they are internal or external facing, as well as authenticate users accessing your site through multiple identity providers, such as AAD, Microsoft and Google. With further roles assigned to users via anonymity or authentication, Power Pages also ensures that users can only access the appropriate pages, tables and data that are assigned to them. This is achieved through Power Pages web roles.
