HCLTech is back at the annual Microsoft Power Platform Conference – this year as a Platinum Sponsor – and will be hosting a session on app modernization. Our excitement about this event is matched only by our energy and passion for the suite of products in Power Platform.
In the last few years, Microsoft’s Power Platform has broken many barriers when it comes to implementing technology solutions to everyday business challenges. What was traditionally thought of as complex and expensive can now be easily accomplished with the innovative and intuitive Power Platform, which consists of four applications.
The first is Power Apps, the amazing low-code / no-code platform that allows you to build applications in a quick and cost-effective manner with minimal coding. For example, let’s consider a scenario in which you manage a sales organization. Imagine being able to provide your salespeople with optimized routes of all customer locations, as well as letting them know up front how much time they will spend driving and how many miles they’ll cover – this would help them prepare for the day ahead. And what if this could all be done in a single mobile app? Well, you don’t have to imagine! You can accomplish this – and a million other things – using simple Power Apps solutions.
The second application in Power Platform is Power BI, the analytics tool that helps you slice and dice your data, providing all sorts of intelligence about your business. The answers to all your business challenges can be found in the data you already have – it’s just a matter of extracting them – and with Power BI, you’ll transform your siloed data into stunning, interactive visualizations in a single view so you can make insight-driven decisions anytime, from anywhere.
From data related to your customer service, field service, sales, and marketing operations to a complete picture of your financial outlook for the coming year, the capabilities with Power BI are limitless.
The third application – Power Automate – is all about behind-the-scenes process automation. This versatile tool integrates seamlessly with hundreds of apps and services, meaning that practically every possible manual process in your organization can be automated. And the newest feature of Power Automate – known as UI Flows – is a robotic process automation tool focused on reducing repetitive manual tasks, thereby increasing efficiency, reducing costs, and eliminating human error.
And lastly, the newest member of the Power Platform family is Power Virtual Agents. This is an intelligent, no-code chatbot solution that helps you respond to inquiries from your customers in a friendly, wizard-like manner. By automating responses to the most common questions, you free up your staff to focus on high-value interactions.
The four applications that comprise Power Platform are compatible with practically every system imaginable. Whether you’re running SAP, Dynamics 365, SharePoint, or any of a thousand other technology platforms, partnering with PowerObjects to unlock the potential of the Power Platform is a breeze. You’ll empower your users to start building apps, reports, flows, and bots to tackle their unique challenges. Of course, ensuring that the tools they’re building are compliant with your own internal quality standards – and that the right people have access to the right data – are critical components of your success. Fortunately, the team at PowerObjects are experts when it comes to Power Platform organizational adoption and governance, including how it can best be incorporated into your business’s unique technology infrastructure.
