In this chapter, we have learned about different types of environments and how they support different life cycle operations that are required for business needs. We also got insights into Power Platform admin center and the administrative capabilities provided by this admin center. This admin center helps us carry out some life cycle operations, such as backup and restore, copy, reset, and delete. These life cycle operations help you to maintain complex scenarios in your organization depending on the business needs.

Similarly, we learned how components such as apps, bots, and flows can be packaged as solutions and migrated between different environments. We also saw the different types of solutions – managed and unmanaged – and why they are needed.

In the next chapter, we will look at how a Dataverse for Teams environment can be upgraded into a full-fledged Microsoft Dataverse environment.
