In this episode of the EY Microsoft Tech Directions podcast series, we discuss Microsoft Power Apps and the rise of business innovation.
Podcast host Simon Hobbs welcomes Ryan Cunningham, General Manager for Power Apps, Microsoft, and Kristie Reid, EY’s Business Applications Lead for the Americas to discuss Microsoft Power Apps and the rise of collaborative business and IT developers.
Apps were once the preserve of young entrepreneurs in search of business success and financial reward. Now, CEOs running established businesses can nurture that entrepreneurial flair within their own organizations using the latest Microsoft technology.
Power Apps is an easy-to-use platform that empowers employees to use their skills and subject expertise to create powerful applications within their departments. This satisfies the front-line employees desire to create solutions that solve their unique problems, while keeping professional developers engaged for more complicated scenarios. These applications will make organizations significantly more agile and responsive amid accelerating change.
- Power Apps doesn’t cut IT out of the loop – it unleashes innovation that helps overcome the bottleneck presented by IT teams expected to do more with less. IT teams are crucial in making sure the less complex applications are leveraging stable technology in a safe, compliant and scalable way that doesn’t require excessive resources.
- IT teams should monitor how employees are using the tools, identify challenges and recommend apps with compelling use cases.
- Organizations must decide how apps are governed and maintained. How and when should they be used, rather than buying off-the-shelf? How will they be managed post launch?
