Power Platform CoE Sustainment
With foundational governance components in place, Company X entered the sustainment phase, focusing on enabling and nurturing their community of makers. Recognizing that the demand for automation exceeds developer resources, the CoE aimed to empower non-IT individuals to build low-code apps safely. This involved identifying various types of Power Apps – from productivity to enterprise-level – and encouraging a collaborative approach between makers and IT.
The nurturing phase included initiatives like building a community of makers, promoting engagement, offering support through sites and templates, providing guidelines, and organizing training events. Company X actively addressed concerns around cost, emphasizing the value of risk mitigation, security, and compliance. Continuing their partnership, Company X and Compass365 have planned further initiatives to support and sustain the CoE such as ALM Accelerator, Pipelines, Environment Request App, and ServiceNow Integration.
The journey of Company X showcases the critical need for a Power Platform CoE before widespread adoption. Acknowledging risks, leveraging the CoE Starter Kit, and sustaining efforts to nurture a community of makers are essential steps. By focusing on governance, security, and supporting their maker community, Company X exemplifies how organizations can harness the Power Platform’s potential while mitigating associated risks.
