Microsoft's newest component for its Power Platform is called Power Pages – a low code development and hosting platform ideal for building business-centric websites whether you're a low code maker or professional developer.

Previously, Power Pages existed as a feature within Power Apps called Power Apps Portals. This enabled users to create and customise external portals in a simple way, including editing pages, layouts and content.

Power Pages is now the fifth element of the Power Platform group as a standalone offering within the Power Platform portfolio.

What can you do with Power Pages?

Power Pages are for creating websites that automate processes for people outside an organisation to simplify and reduce the time taken to complete routine tasks. Examples can include booking an appointment, providing on-demand self-service 24/7 or registering for a warranty.

So, you want to create a mission-critical data-centric external website to service your customers or collaborate with partners. Imagine there was a faster, more secure way to achieve your business goals. Where do you start?

Power Pages provides the tools to design, configure, and publish your website for both desktop and mobile through a fluid visual experience. You can start from a blank space or choose from various rich customisable templates to suit your unique business needs.

Because Power Pages is part of Power Platform, you can add advanced capabilities with Visual Studio code, use the data workspace for business data modelling and visualisation, and maintain enterprise-grade security and site management with role-based access controls. It is also easy to streamline your business processes and automate workflows, all through one convenient, comprehensive platform.

So, whether you're building partnerships, serving citizens, or supporting customers, Power Pages can help you create just the website you need fast.

Among other highlights is the Power Pages design studio, which provides tools for styling, configuring and publishing layouts and pages with text, videos, images and business data forms and lists. The templates hub offers ready-to-go websites for use cases like scheduling, registration and app submission, while the “learn hub” hosts guides and tutorials about how to build websites, model business data and work with code components.

The Microsoft Power Platform ecosystem

We've also discussed how Microsoft Power Platform can enable citizen developers to problem solve. Essentially, citizen development allows for non-technical people or citizen developers to construct their solutions with less help from IT. These are to solve small IT issues, when it comes to the bigger items, it’s always best to consult with professional developers as when handing power to citizen developers with less security training, it is often a concern of increased risks.

Kiandra can enable your citizen developers to build simple point solutions to solve immediate problems while implementing a Microsoft Centre of Excellence (CoE) to ensure visibility, governance, and security. Establishing a Microsoft Power Platform Center of Excellence (CoE) means investing in and nurturing organic growth while maintaining governance and control.
