Low-code, high-impact: How Microsoft Power Platform can help

Enter low-code. Low-code platforms, such as Microsoft Power Platform, are a great way for businesses to be able to make their own applications and tools to be able to boost their performance with minimal or even no prior coding knowledge or experience.

In this article, we’re going to go over the importance of low-code platforms, as well as how Microsoft’s Power Platform can help boost your organisation’s performance and efficiency.

The Importance of Low Code Platforms

A low-code platform is an application development platform that lets you build and deploy applications for your organisation or business

Low-code platforms are essential for any modern business. Where in the past, organisations had to code apps themselves if they wanted apps tailored to their specific needs, low-code development means that practically anyone can design apps for their business.

Low-code is beneficial for businesses for a multitude of reasons —

  • Cost: Low-code development costs a lot less than having a bespoke application developed for your organisation. Rather than having to hire experienced developers, you can instead make your own apps.
  • On-the-fly development: The process of developing apps for your organisation with a developer takes a lot of planning and work to ensure everything is done correctly. However, sometimes you simply just need a solution quickly to make things work. Low-code lets you easily make new apps without having to hire a developer — meaning you can make simple apps within minutes.
  • Ease-of-use: Low-code platforms are much easier than coding a new app. They’re essentially designed to be used by anyone, meaning that it’s much easier to make apps for your organisation than having to learn how to code yourself — or hire someone else to do it.
  • Third-Party Resources: Low-code platforms benefit from a wide range of users worldwide, meaning that there is a host of applications and widgets available that have been designed by other people — making a library of applications and widgets available at your fingertips to use within your own applications.
  • Scalability and flexibility: Low-code applications are incredibly easy to scale and are changeable very easily, meaning that you can adjust or replicate your application as much as required without any complex processes or difficulties along the way.

All of these make low-code one of the most powerful technologies any organisation can look to implement into their organisation — by using low-code platforms, you have access to a fast, easily deployable way to quickly solve problems within your business.

How the Microsoft Power Platform can Boost Business Performance

Power BI

Power BI is an interactive data visualisation application that allows you to model and visualise your data, using AI to access your data in new ways that’ll help push your organisation forward.

This is especially important when trying to work with data — after all, if you can’t understand your data, then it’ll be even harder for you to work with it. By using Power BI, you can visualise this data in new ways to make it easier to process and understand, and use that new knowledge to make key decisions.

Knowledge is as powerful as data, and so using Power BI’s powerful real-time business intelligence tools can help you make decisions quickly — taking the pressure off and letting you make calculated decisions in times of high pressure.

Power Automate

Automation is a key technology in the modern world. Power Automate puts the power of automation at your fingertips, meaning that you can easily automate processes within your organisation.

Using Power Automate, you can create workflows that’ll help key processes within your organisation become more efficient — rather than having to manually do these processes, Power Automate will instead automate them, meaning that you can dedicate those resources anywhere.

From processes as little as saving attachments to a certain folder or SharePoint library within your organisation to being able to facilitate the running of whole social media accounts, Power Automate can bring tons of power to your organisation.

Power Apps

Acting as the glue for your whole organisation, Power Apps is a suite of apps, services, and connectors that gives you access to a rapid development environment to build low-code applications for your organisation.

The essential low-code development platform, Power Apps makes it easy to create new applications for your organisation — integrating other applications from the Power Platform and even the wider Microsoft ecosystem.

From facilitating teamwork by developing apps for collaboration and staff management to further allowing business intelligence to thrive and inform your decisions, Power Apps lets you utilise and deploy the whole Power Platform as applications for your organisation through SharePoint — meaning that your whole organisation can work better, stronger, and more productively.


Power Apps can be used in so many different aspects of your business — from inventory management, to quality assurance, and even employee onboarding, Power Apps simplifies whole aspects of your organisation into app form, making the whole process much easier for everyone involved.
