While companies need to become more digital, finding the right people for developing software and mobile apps becomes increasingly difficult. Luckily all problems come with a solution.

What is low coding?

Low coding is a way for all people, not just professional developers, to build workflows or automate processes. That is the idea behind low coding: easy access for all employees to programming, without learning a complicated programming language.

The concept is based on visual building blocks similar to the well-known platform Canva, which can be used with drag and drop elements, and different templates (as opposed to the complexity of Photoshop by Adobe).

That way all employees from different departments can build tools specific to their work without help from professional developers or the IT department.

The four apps of Microsoft’s Power Platform

The Microsoft Power Platform consists of four apps for different purposes – its offer for companies who have come to recognize the importance of low code as an essential part of digitalization. With the help of these apps, new possibilities open up for companies:

  • Gain new insights
  • Modernize apps
  • Re-design processes
  • Optimize processes manually
  • Transform ideas into applications

The individual apps are all based on one common data platform: the Dataverse, which can be accessed by other Microsoft services as well and means that all data used within these systems is stored centrally in the same place.
