    Microsoft Power Platform has radically transformed business processes, ever since its launch in 2019.

If your business still hasn’t adapted to it, then 2023 is the year when you should adapt to Power Platform. Here we would look at some of the biggest reasons why adapting to Power Platforms business flow will make sense for your business. But before we do that, let us first understand what Power Platform is.

    Five Reasons Why You Should Adapt to Power Platform 

    • Rapid Deployment

    Think of a normal development process. Let us suppose you want to build an app or automate a workflow. You would need to have a detailed discussion with your team, create a spec sheet and then coordinate with the development team. All this takes a lot of effort and consumes a lot of workhours. 

    Since Power Platform tools are low-code/no-code, developing applications doesn’t take a lot of effort. For example, let us assume that you are building an app through Power Apps. You simply create an interface, with the help of drag and drop tools, build the logic, and then deploy the app on the appropriate channels. All this would hardly take a few days. So, you would be able to develop an efficient app at significantly less time. You get the same advantages with other Power Platform tools as well.  

    • Process Automation 

    How much time do you spend of doing repetitive tasks every day? Most businesses, large and small, spend a significant number of workhours every day doing repetitive tasks like data entry, making daily reports etc. Power Platform tools, with Power Automate at the center will help you automate these tasks with a few simple clicks. 

    For example, let us say you need to collect data from different sources from internal and external sources, format them according to a template, and send the file to a specific authority. Normally, you would assign an employee who would spend hours retrieving and formatting the data and sending the report at the end of the day. There is also the chance of the employee committing mistakes amid all this.

    With Microsoft Power Automate, you can create specialized software bots who would complete the task automatically. You can set a timer when the bot will be triggered. Then the bot will download the necessary data, put it in correct format and then send the required mails at the right time. Not only would this save you workhours that could be spent on doing something more productive, but it also reduces the chances of errors.
