Unleash Power Platform

Do you want to empower your team to innovate and achieve more? Look no further than Microsoft’s Power Platform. Power Platform is the no-code/low-code platform that spans Office 365, Azure, Dynamics 365, and standalone applications. For organizations that are struggling with a growing demand for automated solutions and insights, but not enough developers to build them, it provides the ability to build robust web and mobile apps and workflows fast and without limits. This solution empowers both pro developers and non-developers to create applications better and faster. Power Platform gives you access to insights from your data regardless of where it lives along with enterprise-ready security and governance. With Power Platform, you are providing your organization with the ability to create solutions that accelerate business.

Power Platform has many key benefits that will help drive your business goals and success. According to a Forrester Study done in March 2020, the average cost to develop an application is 74% less with Power Apps. In today’s current climate, efficient cost savings are crucial to business success. Developing additional applications in-house also eliminates vendor license costs. Better applications enable business transformation and improved business outcomes.

Power Platform is a great solution, but there are a few major considerations to ensure security, consistency and integrity throughout the organization. IT infrastructure leaders must create a controlled environment. IT professionals should set up monitoring of your environments, create appropriate DLP policies for your organization to maintain control of data access, and determine the level of support to be provided.

It is important to roll out Power Platform correctly and utilize it in an organized way. In order to do this, it’s essential to formalize a plan for the Power Platform roll out. This plan should include a strategy and vision for the platform, a customized center of excellence, roles & responsibilities, end state delivery model, and admin and governance policies.

At Spyglass we refer to this process as an Envisioning and Solution Assessment. Our approach typically takes 2-4 weeks depending on the workshop schedule. We will conduct workshops with members of IT Infrastructure, Security, Business Users, and Project Sponsor Teams and complete the engagement with an Execution Report outlining the roll out plan.
