What is the Power Platform?

It’s a suite of great low-code, no-code tools that allow you to extend your existing solutions, such as Dynamics 365 and Microsoft 365. The tools can even extend non-Microsoft solutions your organization is using, such as ERP systems or social media platforms.

It comes with five main components:

How it Works

Automate Repetitive Tasks

Power Platform allows Dynamics users to automate repetitive tasks, saving time and increasing productivity. Whether you’re an experienced developer or have no experience with development, the low-code tool makes it easy to streamline your workflow.

Low-Code, No-Code App Building

With low-code, no-code tools, Power Platform empowers your Microsoft Dynamics users to easily extend their existing solutions, creating a more seamless and integrated experience for both employees and customers.

Harness Business Intelligence

Power BI consolidates data from various sources and transforms it into reports and valuable insights. These analytics lead to informed decision-making and helps in understanding customer behaviors and market trends.

Flexibility Across Solutions

Power Platform isn’t limited to Dynamics solutions – it can also extend non- Dynamics solutions like ERPs, providing a flexible and comprehensive platform for all your business needs.

What Does Low-Code No-Code Mean?

You might recall we used this term above. When talking about technology, the term low-code no-code applies to citizen developers. It simply means that you don’t need to be an expert in coding to use these tools and non-technical or semi-technical people can use them easily. It’s very intuitive and user-friendly.

Power Platform is even wading into AI with Microsoft Copilot. If you are on a cloud-based Microsoft solution, you can describe what you want to build to Copilot and it will help you establish the base of what you want to create. From there you can go in and move things around, drag and drop different elements, and make sure everything is done to your specifications.


We're already using other tools for process automation and application extension?

While you may have existing tools, Power Platform offers an integrated suite of tools specifically designed for seamless collaboration and compatibility within the Microsoft ecosystem. It provides a unified solution for app building, automation, data analysis, and customer service, enhancing overall efficiency and productivity.

We are not sure if our team has the technical expertise to utilize these tools effectively.

Power Platform is designed to be user-friendly and accessible to individuals with varying levels of technical expertise. With its intuitive interface and extensive resources, including tutorials and community support, your team can quickly adapt and harness the full potential of these powerful tools.

I don't have time to create custom apps for my business needs.

With Power Platform, you can create apps that serve your specific business needs in no time, empowering you to focus on driving your business forward.
