Then you could benefit from the Power Platform. This suite of solutions will allow you to develop custom applications, automate tedious work, and fully harness the data you possess on your business processes.

What Is The Power Platform?

Is your team spending too much time on repetitive, tedious tasks?

Are you overwhelmed by the prospect of analyzing your business’ data?

It sounds like you’ve got the fundamentals of business management down, but aren’t sure how to take it to the next level. Initiatives like business intelligence and process optimization look good on paper, but they can be difficult to get up off the ground.

That’s why the Microsoft Power Platform is such a powerful tool…

3 Pillars Of The Power Platform

Power Automate

Automation is a rapidly growing application of technology in the business world.

Automation with machine learning plays an enormous role in optimizing workflows and predicting problems before they occur. With workflows based in the cloud, you can automate or semi-automate many processes:

  • Workflows and consistently repeated work
  • Use analytics to predict problems before they arise.
  • Automate and monitor work and maintenance schedules.

Power Automate will let you automate your most tedious business processes, without having to write code. Based on Microsoft Flow, you can use it to quickly establish automated workflows and coordinate processes, spreadsheets, databases, and even integrate it with programs like Dynamics NAV and Office 365.

Power Apps

Software is just one of the many tools your staff uses to get work done each and every day.

Like any tool, if it’s not properly suited to the task, it will only slow you down and negatively affect the end results. That’s why generic software can be so frustrating for businesses like yours that have specialized processes.

If you’re finding off-the-shelf software to be less than perfectly suited to your needs, then you should try Power Apps. This solution lets you develop custom apps without having to invest in months of work by a team of outsourced coders and developers.

With Power Apps, you can use very basic, easy-to-learn code to produce apps that are unique to your business processes.

Power BI

Power BI is a desktop and cloud-based analytics tool that allows users to visualize and analyze data with greater speed, efficiency, and understanding. The “BI” stands for Business Intelligence.

This solution connects you to a broad range of data through easy-to-use dashboards, interactive reports and compelling visualizations that bring data to life.

Every decision you make has an outcome; even on a fundamental level, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. That’s why it’s so important to make well-informed decisions when it comes to your business.

With the right information, each choice you make can have attainable and expected positive results for your business; without that information, you may as well be gambling with the future of your company.

Data visualization is common in the business world today—at this point, it’s virtually a must-have. However, analyzing data can be a daunting task. Power BI will help you easily analyze and visualize your data with interactive and business-intelligence capabilities.
