Unleashing #LessCodeMorePower with Power Platform

Our customers’ appetite for business applications is greater than ever. In fact, it is predicted that over the next five years, more than 500 million digital apps and services will be developed and deployed.1

While some processes are best solved by off-the-shelf SaaS solutions, there isn’t always “an app for that.” Even for processes that are best solved by traditional custom app development, there is only so much traditional custom app development an organization can invest in. And this demand for business applications is growing 5X faster than what your customers’ IT departments can deliver.

Is everything else a missed opportunity to optimize and innovate? Not really.

The good news is that 65% of enterprise app development will be low-code by 20242. With Microsoft Power Platform, you can rapidly build new experiences using low-code tools to help your customers modernize processes and solve their business challenges.

Last March 16-18 2021, Microsoft launched the very first #TechPowerUp series – #LessCodeMorePower on Power Platform. Across 3 days, 12 sessions, more than 200 attendees got a chance to explore and identify opportunities for low-code/no-code customer scenarios, deepen their Power Platform technical knowledge. Our goal, that attendees be able to:

Quickly build applications to solve business problems with low-code/no-code tools.
Integrate Power Applications into Teams for scale and easy deployment.
Leverage AI to enhance your Power Platform solutions to reduce errors and accelerate information gathering.
Build intelligent chatbots to engage audiences.
Leverage automation to accelerate business processes.
Build compelling interactive reports that engage users with Power BI.
Best practices and techniques to establish a center of excellence with your customers for accelerated solutions.
