Empower your citizen developers while ensuring compliance, governance, and operational excellence with a Power Platform Center of Excellence

Today’s work environment requires the ability to adapt quickly and to empower business users to get their work done. Demand for new apps is growing up to five times faster than IT departments can deliver. IT is being challenged, not only to build but to provide governance and support for the applications in production. 

power platform center of excellence

How do you close this gap to deliver and govern the process automation solutions your organization relies on? Establish a Power Platform Center of Excellence (CoE) to empower your Citizen Developers while providing standards, consistency, and governance to the organization.

Compass365 is helping forward-thinking organizations get up and running with their own Power Platform CoE. Our experts bring their vast knowledge of app building together with Microsoft’s Power Platform CoE guidance to fast-forward your adoption efforts.

Components of a Power Platform Center of Excellence

Our process

The Business Applications team at Compass365 has been delivering Microsoft-based forms and workflow solutions for more than 15 years. We created the Compass365 Power Platform Center of Excellence offering to help our clients address the rapid growth, continued demand, and need for governance for Power Platform solutions.

Center of Excellence efforts start with an assessment and planning phase. Using a series of workshops with our Solutions Architects and key stakeholders, we clarify and document our client’s purpose, goals, objectives, and expected outcomes in a Strategy and Roadmap Planning document. We provide guidance on Microsoft’s best practices for Power Platform, potential licensing implications, document security, and compliance requirements as well as plans for configuration, communication, intake, and delivery processes. Implementation estimates are provided along with formal documentation to carry out the implementation of the Center of Excellence.
In this phase, the CoE roadmap is implemented. This includes O365 tenant and Power Platform configurations to reflect the governance policies and decisions in the roadmap, along with design documentation, test scripts, and user guides. We believe strongly that formal, yet easy-to-understand and follow documentation is a key deliverable to every project, and critical to the long-term viability of the Center of Excellence. During this phase, the communication plan is finalized with a defined strategy, templates, and other assets to not only inform the organization but engage and build anticipation with the business for process improvements and opportunities to come.
While each organization’s strategy is unique, the goal is consistent. We enable and empower citizen developers with a series of tools, resources, and events. These can range from roadshow events with business units who’ve expressed interest to training videos, lunch and learns, online training/certification, reference guides, individual consultation sessions, and more. We rely on our clients’ understanding of their organization’s culture, technical aptitude, and maturity level to help shape the enablement program that will work best for them. While it may take time, ultimately champions will emerge. Providing a platform and opportunity for these folks to share their knowledge and successes helps the effort grow exponentially.

Managing, sustaining and growing the Power Platform Center of Excellence program is an ongoing effort. Some of our clients have the in-house resources to sustain this effort, while others rely on our team to help with the care and feeding of the program. Power Platform is a great tool for citizen developers to create their own low to medium-complexity solutions. Some processes, however, due to either complexity or time constraints, warrant escalation to developer resources to help guide, review architecture and build out the solutions. In many cases, the Compass365 team is engaged long-term as part of the program to deliver solutions, conduct workshops, build out proof-of-concept apps, help with discovery and estimation of effort, etc. With the organization’s IT leaders, we help establish audit and reporting processes that feed into the cycle of continual process improvement.

Replace InfoPath with Power Apps

Whether you have one or hundreds of InfoPath forms, they all must be replaced before Microsoft support ends. While Microsoft has announced 2026 as the official end of support for InfoPath, that date can change with little notice, especially for SharePoint Online users. Remember SharePoint 2010 Workflows? Replacing with Power Apps sooner versus later offers the chance to modernize, taking full advantage of the Microsoft ecosystem and ensuring you won’t get caught flat-footed if InfoPath is retired earlier than expected.

Get a head start on replacing InfoPath during two complimentary discovery sessions with a Compass365 Microsoft Solutions Architect. We’ll analyze any in-use legacy InfoPath Forms and/or SharePoint Designer 2013 workflows and provide recommendations for modernization.

Our process

Since the Power Platform was launched in 2016, Compass365 has helped organizations successfully modernize hundreds of legacy InfoPath/SharePoint Designer solutions. Our team will design and deliver the right solution for your unique challenges.

During this complimentary session, we run the SharePoint Modernization scanner to see where and how InfoPath is being used, determine expected business outcomes, and recommend the next steps.

We work with you to analyze the business purpose of each solution, identify, discuss, and address any potential issues, and envision ways to leverage modern technology. Using that data, we build and deliver an implementation roadmap.

We use this phase to re-engineer business processes, work iteratively with your team for feedback, incorporate and demonstrate feedback during design and playback meetings, and confirm the solution design.

We rebuild efficiently in Power Apps, prepare users for User Acceptance Testing (UAT), develop and share user training and adoption guides, and keep you informed with regular communications while deploying to production.

Our team will implement Application Lifecycle Management procedures and support you for two weeks post-go-live. Optional agreements for ongoing escalation support and enhancements are also available.
