Microsoft Power Platform

What is the Power Platform?

Microsoft PowerApps / Power Platform is a high productivity, low-code development platform that enables anyone to build rich web and mobile applications. The platform empowers citizen developers through low-code capabilities, while also featuring sophisticated application development functionality to increase productivity for professional developers and reduce bottlenecks for IT departments.

Integrate your data with PowerApps

Employ Power BI

Automate tasks across apps with Microsoft Flow

With a PowerApps partner, you can ensure that your application is everything you need and more, capable of deployment across your company, pulling in data from internal and external applications, and offers analytics-based insights that take your data to the next level.

It’s a great way to centralize and govern solutions

Almost every big company has the challenge of Shadow Apps or Shadow IT. Those are apps or scripts that employees build that are not officially supported but find their way into poplar use. It’s a blessing and a curse for any company.

How do you enable Citizen developers and still provide a level of governance to protect the interests of your company?

Employees often have great ideas about what would make them more productive, but it’s also important to make sure apps are built in a way that doesn’t violate company policy or introduce unforeseen risk.
