Microsoft Flow

Microsoft has updated its Flow automation service with a new feature. Microsoft Flow is a great tool for building sequential flows, along with conditional logic. Until now, all the steps you add to the flow execute sequentially or one after the other. Today, Microsoft is announcing that Flow now supports parallel execution as well.

Parallel execution is the ability where you can run two or more steps in a flow, simultaneously,  after which the workflow will only proceed once all parallel steps have completed.

Microsoft has also added five new services to the ever growing list of supported services.
