Before we get started, let’s define the Microsoft Power Platform 

The Microsoft Power Platform is a low code platform that uses Microsoft Azure to combine the robust power of PowerApps, PowerBI, Power Pages, Power Virtual Agents & Power Automate into one powerful business application platform – providing quick & easy app building, data insights & business process automation. 

So, what ways can your business benefit from the Microsoft Power Platform? 

You are able to use any of the Power Platform applications separately, however the best way to maximise your use of it is to combine them which helps you to build a seamless ecosystem connecting all of your business solutions. 

1 – Resolve your business challenges 

You will find that the Power Platform apps can work together to resolve specific issues in your business. Better still, if you are able to work with a partner, such as Advantage, you can create solutions that are designed specifically to meet your business needs. 

2 – Relatively low cost of entry 

You will notice that all of the Power Platform apps are licensed by Microsoft, therefore your business can reduce the amount they spend on third-party applications. Furthermore, the low-code approach doesn’t need as many resources when you compare it to other development techniques.

In a number of businesses, unconnected systems and long-winded processes and workflows have a detrimental impact on productivity. This is where the Microsoft Power Platform can come in to resolve these problems by: 

Using advanced automation: You will be able to use Power Automate to streamline operations by automating long winded processes such as approvals, notifications via email, reminders for meetings, data transfers and much, much more. 

Complete solutions: The apps used in the Microsoft Power Platform work seamlessly with each other and if required can include third-party applications, making it easy to combine anything you require on one single platform. 

4 – Have data readily accessible 

When using Power BI, one of the tools used in the Power Platform, you are able to gain access to game changing data analytics and visualisation capabilities. It allows you to build engaging reports and dashboards, helping you to reveal insights from your data. 

5 – Leading security and compliance 

In the modern digital world, security and compliance are non-negotiable. This is where the Power Platform can help as it's been created to take these sorts of things into account, complying with industry standards and providing leading data protection and access control.
