Revolutionising Business Operations: 6 Ways Power Platform is Cost Effectively Driving Transformation

Managed Cloud Identity

As digital transformation becomes increasingly essential, companies are looking to enhance their operational efficiency, streamline their processes, and improve their customer experience. Microsoft’s Power Platform offers a comprehensive solution to these challenges. At Graphene Cloud, we recognise the power of this platform in revolutionising business operations in ways never before imagined. In this article, we will delve into 5 ways the Power Platform is transforming business operations and propelling digital transformation with compelling ROI.

Process Automation

One of the most significant advantages of the Power Platform is its capacity to automate processes. Utilising Power Automate, organisations can automate repetitive tasks and workflows, allowing employees to concentrate on more critical tasks. For example, a company can automate data capture from forms and input it into a database, reducing manual errors, delivering cost efficiency, and accelerating the processes.

Low-Code/No-Code Development

Lastly, Power Platform is revolutionising business operations through its low-code/no-code development capabilities. With Power Apps, organisations can create custom applications without extensive coding skills. This means that companies can develop bespoke applications to meet their specific needs more rapidly and cost-effectively than ever before.

Data Visualisation

Power BI, another compelling component of Power Platform, aids organisations in visualising their data more effectively. Using Power BI, organisations can generate interactive dashboards and reports, providing valuable insights into their operations. For instance, a company can utilise Power BI to monitor sales data, identify trends, and make informed decisions based on that information. Now with the advent of Copilot, this has made creating compelling information dashboard easier than ever.

External Sharing

Many organisations needs to externalise their services with suppliers and customers alike. Power Pages allows you to extend your reach beyond your organisational boundaries to empower remote stakeholders with your bespoke Power Apps, Power BI reports and dashboards, and Power Automate solutions. This delivers a better customer experience and improved supply chain management.

Collaboration and Communication

Power Platform also integrates with the suite of tools in M365, such as deploying dashboards and apps inside Microsoft Teams, so your flow of work can take place in a single pane of glass. Adaptive Cards can send authorisation tiles in both Teams and Outlook, and notifications can be sent to mobile devices, so process can progress when staff are out of the office.

Do More For Less

Many power Platform features are available in existing M365 licenses at no additional costs, meaning you can start to transform your business with additional expenditure. However,  where premium features are required, prices start form as little as £5 per user per month.


In conclusion, the Power Platform is revolutionising business operations in numerous ways. From automating processes to integrating systems and visualising data, the Power Platform is transforming how organisations operate. With its suite of tools, businesses can streamline their processes, boost their operational efficiency, and elevate their customer experience. In today’s digital era, the Power Platform is the solution to these challenges, driving digital transformation across all industries, and above all allows organisations to do more for less.
