Low-Code with the Microsoft Power Platform

Drivers of rapid digitalisation

Fast and efficient application development

Digitalisation is a driver of innovation that increases companies’ individual performance. Modern low-code platforms are a popular driver of rapid digitalisation. These platforms present a straightforward visual development approach for users of all experience levels to be able to create modern web and mobile applications via simple user interfaces. The term ‘low-code’ in the application section describes the use of few to no lines of code – comparable to productivity tools such as OpenOffice Calc or Microsoft Excel.

This is a relief for non-technical developers because they do not have to learn complicated code; while for professional developers, complicated installation routines are abstracted. Developing and launching business-critical applications takes place in a fraction of the time it takes for traditional software development processes.

Five reasons to introduce a low-code platform:

  • It drives digitalisation forward by replacing manual processes
  • It modernises your individual product and service innovations
  • You save costs when developing applications
  • Specialist departments are involved, and application development is accelerated
  • It supports agile working

The Microsoft Power Platform at a glance

With more than three million monthly active users and a growth of 700 per cent in business-critical applications compared to the previous year, the Power Platform has great potential and, at the same time, is the market leader in the area of low-code application platforms, as studies by Gartner and Forrester show.

The Power Platform is an advantageous choice for users thanks to its networked community of over 1.5 million active members, which is continuing to grow. This large community helps users find solutions to their problems quickly and generate ideas for further projects. The sought-after approach for increasing productivity quickly, efficiently and easily, without setting up complex and long-standing software projects, is to recognise growing interests.
