Microsoft Power Platform

How to increase productivity with low-code business apps

In a time when IT resources are scarce and standardized tools are the norm, there is a huge demand for easy, flexible and cost-efficient custom solutions for specific business challenges. With Microsoft Power Platform, both professionals and end users can create low-code or no-code business apps. Here’s how to introduce Power Platform in your company, so your teams can create these apps themselves.

It’s a low-code development platform based on Dynamics 365, with a simple drag-and-drop interface that allows practically anyone to create business apps that bridge the gap between business and IT.

What can you do with it? Analyze data, develop applications, automate processes, create virtual agents … It essentially allows your teams to quickly respond to changing business needs in a cost-effective way.  

Where Power Platform really shines? Automating manual and/or inefficient processes that can’t be covered by existing applications – either because it takes too long or because there’s no capacity. 

The best part? It doesn't just integrate with the Microsoft suite. Power Platform is easy to connect with Salesforce, Dataverse, Oracle, SAP and SQL, and also lets you create custom connections where needed.

The benefits of Power Platform 

  • Increase efficiency: Digitize manual processes, reduce paperwork and human errors, make data available in real-time and collaborate more effectively with digital applications.

  • Improve quality: Free up time to focus on what really matters, so your team can generate more added value and provide even more quality to your customers.

  • Reduce costs and optimize your resources: Average development costs are 74% lower with Power Apps. In-house-developed applications eliminate vendor license costs.

  • Reduce shadow IT: Many companies have a lot of apps and tools floating around. This shadow IT is inefficient and exposes your business to security risks. Low-code apps reduce shadow IT with quick and easy tools in one central layer.

It also enables organizations to optimize their use of Power Platform by ensuring that resources are used efficiently and effectively, and that the platform is aligned with business objectives.
