  2. pull tweets into Excel 
  3. get Slack notifications when a file is uploaded to a Dropbox folder 
  4. You can even create flows to copy files from OneDrive for Business to SharePoint 
  5. When an object is created in Salesforce, create a row in SQL

So far here are cloud APIs that are supported;

Office 365, OneDrive, Twitter, Google Drive, Slack, Mailchimp, GitHub, Dynamics CRM, Sharepoint, Salesforce, SQL, GitHub, Yammer

For technical people, you could consider Microsoft's Flow as cloud app version of Sharepoint Workflow.
