There are many ways that the Microsoft Power Platform can help accelerate business growth. Among the most important reasons are that the Power Platform can help businesses save time and money. In a report compiled by the Forrester group, deploying the Microsoft Power Platform was found to:
- Reduce development costs by up to 74%.
- Save workers up to 3.2 hours per week.
The report combined interview and surveys from 59 companies across industries – ranging from professional services to banking to beverage distribution.
Deploying the Microsoft Power Platform helps businesses save money
In today’s unpredictable economy, organizations need to make every dollar stretch. Making application development accessible to more users is one way to save time and money across an organization. Creating robust business solutions without requiring the involvement to developers or IT specialists can be very cost effective. Not only does the company save money by not having to enlist the services of developers, but it can also free up people in their IT departments to work on other difficult solutions.
Deploying the Microsoft Power Platform helps businesses save time
Deploying the Power Platform can help save time in the following ways:
- Utilizing a low code/no code environment reduces development time.
- Creating repeatable assets and components that can be used over and over not only helps to save time, but it also enables businesses to quickly develop applications.
- Creating applications to eliminate manual tasks.
- Enabling your employees to make better and faster decisions – as they will have easy access to timelier information.
Power Apps is a platform that benefits both “pro developers” and “citizen developers.”
Previously, only “pro developers” could be involved with the actual making of an app. With Power Apps, now everyone has the power to build the apps they need – using advanced functionality previously only available to professional developers.
Power Apps “democratizes” the custom app building experience by enabling everyone to build feature-rich, custom apps with little to no code writing knowledge.
In addition to saving time and money, the Power Platform can also help your organization to:
- Reduce your technical debt.
- Increase employee satisfaction.
- Increase productivity -Within minutes, a “citizen developer” can create an app that works on the web, works on mobile, and connects to data.
Another major benefit to organizations is the ease of learning the Microsoft Power Platform. The consistency among Microsoft products makes learning the Power Platform simple
