The 2020 pandemic has accelerated business automation. The modern workplace is neither a luxury nor a project for another time.
For some businesses, it’s a competitive advantage that shouldn’t be overlooked; for others, it will be essential for survival. Businesses that can reduce overheads, increase productivity and measure business performance will have the best outcomes.
Until recently, digital transformation was a project for a professional developer, putting it out of reach for most companies, but all that has changed.
A new breed of no code or low code tools is now available to create automated workflows that streamline business tasks, allowing companies of any size to improve their business performance.
The most prominent of these is the Microsoft Power Platform. It’s available on the Microsoft Cloud and integrated with 365 and Azure. In many cases, access to the Microsoft Power Platform is already included in your licence fees. Are you using it?
Power BI – a data analysis, reporting and visualisation tool that gives you the Busines Intelligence you need to make informed, confident decisions.
Power Apps – build no code or low code web or mobile apps that run on any device in any location. Integrate applications with hundreds of pre-built connectors to solve business problems.
Power Automate – workflow automation that creates multi-step processes by linking many different applications.
Forester has conducted research on over 50 companies using the Microsoft Power Platform and found that the average ROI is 188% and the payback period is just six months.
The development process is inexpensive, fast and simple which makes many scenarios feasible and valuable.
