Why Power Platform for Dynamics 365?

In the digital transformation era, companies are evermore reliant on their data – and the amount of data being created is continually increasing at pace. This ever-growing data is of no real value unless companies gain meaningful informed Insights to reap ROI from it.  Traditionally, data analysis, app creation or automation would be done by the IT & Development teams and would have required personnel to outline their requirements and objectives and then submit their requests to their IT department.  This would be time-consuming and use valuable resources. And those requesting the solution would usually have an immediate requirement and may have to wait for weeks to have the solution delivered and this time delay may well create costly delays.

This is why the Power Platform is such a valuable and welcome platform to enhance the ROI of the Dynamics 365 ERP & CRM technology investments.  The Power Platform enables the ability for your data and information to be accessible to the typical non-technical end user.  It provides three technologies that allow staff to do more with their data themselves and without coding knowledge.  While it doesn’t allow the intricacies and flexibility of custom coding, it does provide a simple method for most users to be able to create, automate or analyse their data in ways which have never been previously possible for the average user with a low code / no code approach!

Though the Power Platform connects to a wide range of third-party apps such as Google Analytics and Twitter, one of its key strength’s is when working with the familiar Microsoft Products such as Office 365 and Dynamics 365. Microsoft have developed and positioned the Power Platform to unlock the full potential of Dynamics 365 Business Central and Dynamics 365 CRM Solutions so you can easily extend, customise, and integrate these services.  As Microsoft continue to focus on bringing all their technologies closer together, the Power Platform will be central to this strategy – helping connect services like Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365 ERP & CRM, and Azure easily with a low-code / no-code approach!
