In today’s digital age, data is the new oil, powering organisations and driving decision-making. But let’s face it: while data can be a powerful ally, managing it can sometimes feel like trying to solve a Rubik’s Cube blindfolded. Enter the Power Platform – Microsoft’s suite of business applications designed to make working with data a breeze. 

But what happens when you combine the potential of Power Platform technologies with a seasoned Power Platform expert? Now that’s a recipe for success!

What is the Microsoft Power Platform?

Before we jump into the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of Power Platform partnerships, let’s start with the ‘what’. So, what exactly are these Power Platform technologies we’re talking about?

Microsoft’s Power Platform is your business’s all-in-one toolbox. Think of it like the Swiss Army knife of the digital world – compact, versatile, and incredibly useful. But what does this toolbox contain? Five nifty tools that work in harmony to transform, automate, and simplify how your organisation works with data.

First up, we have Power BI. Picture this as your organisation’s private detective, poring over heaps of data to pull out the key insights. It takes raw data and presents it as easy-to-understand visualisations. A pie chart over a spreadsheet? Yes, please!

Next, there’s Power Apps. This clever tool allows you to create custom apps without the need to code. It’s like having a fully-equipped kitchen where you can whip up your favourite dishes (apps) without any culinary expertise (coding).

Then, we encounter Power Automate. If you’ve ever wished to clone yourself to get more done, here’s your solution. Power Automate streamlines and automates repetitive tasks, freeing up your time for strategic thinking and decision-making.

Along comes Power Virtual Agents your customer service virtuoso. This tool can create intelligent chatbots to handle your customer queries, serving as an extra pair of hands that keeps your customers satisfied 24/7.

Finally, introducing Power Pages. This gem is your go-to for creating data-driven, modern, and secure websites, regardless of your technical skills. With its user-friendly interface and professional-grade adaptability, it’s like having a website workshop at your fingertips.

In a nutshell, the Power Platform is this awesome quintet, designed to make data simple, processes efficient, and your life a whole lot easier. 

Recognising the Need: When Does Your Organisation Need the Power Platform?

Now that we’ve unravelled the ‘what’ of Power Platform, let’s delve into the ‘when’. Recognising the right time to incorporate the Power Platform into your organisation can be crucial for maintaining a competitive edge.

So, when might your organisation need the Power Platform?

  1. You’re swimming in data but starving for insights: Data is the lifeblood of any modern organisation. However, if you’re struggling to make sense of it all, Power BI can help. This tool will turn your raw data into valuable insights, presented as easily digestible visualisations.
  1. You have unique business needs that off-the-shelf apps can’t meet: Every organisation is unique, and sometimes, you need a solution as unique as you are. That’s where Power Apps comes in. It allows you to develop custom applications tailored to your specific business needs, even without a background in coding.
  1. Your team is bogged down by repetitive tasks: If your talented team is spending more time on mundane, repetitive tasks than on strategic work, it’s time to introduce them to Power Automate. This tool can help automate these tasks, freeing your team to focus on what truly matters.
  1. You need to enhance your customer service: In a world where customer experience can make or break your business, Power Virtual Agents can be a game-changer. By deploying smart, AI-powered chatbots, you can ensure your customers receive prompt and accurate responses, boosting their satisfaction.

Remember, the Power Platform isn’t an ‘all or nothing’ proposition. You can adopt these tools as per your need, scale, and pace. They’re designed to work together seamlessly, but each also stands strong on its own, ready to cater to your specific requirements.

Recognising when your organisation needs the Power Platform is an important first step. The next is understanding why partnering with a Power Platform expert can help you leverage its full potential.

Case Study: Otsuka Pharmaceutical

Otsuka Pharmaceutical is a global healthcare company dedicated to creating new products for better health worldwide. They research, develop, manufacture, and market innovative products, with a focus on pharmaceutical products for disease treatment and nutraceutical products for everyday health maintenance.

However, Otsuka’s UK division was struggling with data management. The team spent up to four days each month manually downloading and consolidating data, which they used to create Excel reports. 

The process was time-consuming, prone to human error, and lacked centralised reporting across their various internal departments, making their data incredibly difficult to decipher. Moreover, they needed a way to share and present company-wide KPIs during their monthly Town Hall meetings.

Enter Bespoke XYZ.

We developed and deployed a Power BI dashboard for Otsuka, creating two key views: one for Finance and one for Operations. The dashboard extracts data from Otsuka’s multiple systems and presents their performance vs targets for each of their key metrics.

With this intuitive, automated dashboard, the Otsuka team can now quickly and easily understand key statistics and the story behind their data, driving better outcomes. No more manual reporting, no more inaccuracies – just precise, accessible insights at their fingertips.

As a result, Otsuka has become more efficient, accurate, and data-driven than ever before. And all this was made possible through a fruitful partnership with Bespoke XYZ.

In essence, Bespoke XYZ isn’t just a service provider, but a partner, committed to guiding you towards a future where data becomes your most powerful ally.

As we wrap up our journey into the Power Platform and the value of partnering with an expert, remember: you’re not alone in this. Collaboration is the key to unlocking your full potential.
