In our introductory Power Platform Blog we described Microsoft Power Apps in a single paragraph:
Power Apps allows anyone to build professional-grade apps in a short amount of time. These apps modernise and digitise complex business line processes, with prebuilt templates and rapid deployments. It also reduces the cost of building an app by 70%.
In this second blog we will delve a little more deeply into this subject and even more specifically into Low Code.
The low code or no code ‘revolution’ is the rise of drag and drop, simple user interfaces, that allow non-developers to easily build digital solutions, applications, dashboards, and automated workflows. Specifically, Microsoft Power Apps allows anyone to build professional-grade apps in a short amount of time. These apps modernise and digitise complex business line processes, with prebuilt templates and rapid deployments.
In most cases Low Code = Rapid Development which in turn = High Productivity. This reduces the need for an organisation to substantially invest in in-house software or a room full of developers being trained up to create a solution. It’s not a completely self-sufficient solution and will need ongoing security and governance and this is where a consultative partner can really excel. The average cost to develop an app is 70% less with Power Platform than with traditional coding methods.
