Get to know Power Platform,  the Microsoft business applications suite

The Power Platform, Microsoft’s line of business applications for enabling business intelligence, app development, and app connectivity, has come a long way since its initial release more than 4 years ago. It has evolved into an enterprise trusted toolset, currently used by 97% of the Fortune 500. Remarkably, the tools appeal to not only large enterprises but provide great value across the board to include SMBs, non-profits, and emerging organizations.

The Power Platform consists of 4 primary tools:

Power Platform Maturity

Over the past few years, we’ve seen a great deal of maturity in the Power Platform, especially as it relates to performance, scalability, software development life cycle (SDLC), and governance, all key considerations for building, deploying, and supporting enterprise-grade applications. Microsoft, recognizing the cost barrier to expanding usage of the Power Apps at an enterprise scale, has adjusted the pricing a few times, as well. Current pricing models for subscriptions can be purchased per app, per use, and a pay-as-you-go plan.  We imagine the pricing model will continue to evolve as the functionality of the platform does as well.

We’ve included a few of the innovations most useful to our clients in the platform in the blogs listed below:
