Citzen Development in the EDT using the Power Platform
The availability of technical resource and support in any Organisation is finite. While solutions and improvements can be identified across an Organisation, its often the case that only those solutions offering macro benefits across multiple teams with high efficiencies and a quick return on investment will be prioritised.
Citizen development is a new way of working that enables those with a keen interest in computing and an ability to learn autonomously to create technical solutions safely and efficiently with widespread roll out across teams at minimal cost.
Microsoft’s Power Platform is a game changer for Organisations who have pockets of innovators and skilled, technical individuals spread throughout various teams within the business. These individuals or sub teams can help to deliver a greater volume of positive, secure change within the business, increasing micro benefits that add up over time, continually improving the wider Organisation one solution at a time.
