Microsoft Power Platform: A powerful tool to boost ROI for enterprises

With low-code platforms, businesses are accelerating, empowering, and transforming themselves at a rapid pace. It is among these platforms that enable enterprises to realise the benefits in terms of their business quickly. The change is designed to improve business processes, data flows, and the employee experience while managing the business risks. This blog post aims to show how Microsoft Power Platform integration can help growing companies maximise their investments.

Assess your organisation’s performance

  • Would you like to address your business needs with industry-specific processes?
  • Is your business complex and difficult to lead the innovation because your business priorities conflict?
  • Considering data sources, connectors, and security issues, how would you manage them? Are they complicating your business problems?
  • Are you simply looking for replacements for older apps that have neared their end of life?

You need to embrace and implement Power Platform if any of the scenarios above resonate with you.

Data and insights are power platform features that drive business value.

Businesses are leveraging data more and more to drive business success. Their ability to harness data and signals from varied sources, including web traffic, social media, and CRM and ERP systems, has improved thanks to cloud storage and easier access to large quantities of data. But how will they be able to use it once the infrastructure setup is complete?

This situation occurs when data helps employees make informed, timely decisions regardless of technical skills, allowing them to achieve business goals.

It is precisely that which the Power Platform does. Analytics, action and automation are three important steps enterprises can take to improve their business through data. With Power BI, Power Apps, and Automate, everyone in your company, from the CEO to the front-line staff, can get their hands on the data they need.

Microsoft Power Platform makes it possible to analyse data through three cloud-based services: Power BI, Power Apps, and Automate.

Power Apps – with this, you can develop customised business apps and link data and work between mobile and web.

Power BI – a tool that unifies data from various sources and provides actionable insights via interactive dashboards and reports.

Power Automate – to seamlessly integrate robust workflow automation with business apps.

A study by Forrester Consulting illustrates how Power Platform contributes to improving organisations’ ROI

The Forrester survey (March 2020) targeted the Total Economic Impact and the Return on Investment. During the interviews, six organisations detailed how they implemented power apps and powered automate into their business model. The company reduced development costs and improved processes by lowering application development time and allowing non-developers to create custom applications and workflows. Moreover, their time to market was reduced, and their customer service level was improved, resulting in revenue growth.

According to the quantifiable benefits, Microsoft Automate and Power Apps reduce the development costs by 74 per cent. Thus, the costs associated with application development and management can be avoided, resulting in significant savings in professional services fees, application purchases from suppliers, and reduced effort in code maintenance.

Various examples of external apps that were replaced by internal Power Apps and Azure Automation applications were also presented. This study eliminated these applications, resulting in significant savings. Power Apps alone saved nearly 1,650 users 1.6 hours in automation and process efficiency based on the findings.

Businesses have been transformed and benefited from better applications. With better access to information, employees could also make better and faster decisions. Companies with non-quantifiable benefits also reported these benefits. The Power Apps platform empowers users as well, which contributes to greater employee satisfaction. The Power Platform includes other solutions such as Dynamics CRM and Teams too, which have started to deliver enhanced value to organisations. 

The transformation and enhancement of business results lead to happier customers, a faster time to market, and more accurate revenue forecasting.

Microsoft Power Platform has renowned business benefits, including:

  • The development cost of an application is reduced significantly
  • Enhancing business outcomes through process automation, efficiency improvements, and transformation
  • Better and faster decision-making using better and more accessible data
  • Integrating data and workflow across multiple solutions
  • Enhanced security features for mobile apps
  • Construct applications in weeks
  • Compliance with GDPR is fully automated
  • Exceptional ROI

Summing up

Power Platform streamlines the process of creating, automating, and analysing data for businesses without requiring them to expend time or effort. By extending Power BI, Power Apps, and Power Automate with the Power Platform, customers can easily integrate their existing systems with these capabilities. The platform can also integrate with Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, Azure and a host of other software applications to help create business solutions.
