Low-code platforms offer a solution to the global shortage of skilled developers and technical specialists, allowing IT departments to create technical solutions, simplify data analysis, and reduce costs. According to a survey conducted by Edelman Assembly on behalf of Microsoft, more than 2,000 IT CIOs and professionals agreed that low-code platforms are effective in increasing efficiency and promoting collaboration between IT and business teams. Furthermore, low-code platforms can reduce time-to-value by extending existing legacy capabilities, streamlining migration projects, and replacing legacy applications with low-code solutions.

Low-code platforms are effective in accelerating application development, increasing efficiency, and enabling faster time-to-market. They also promote collaboration between IT and business teams, leading to better alignment with business objectives. With embedded AI capabilities, low-code development can rapidly build and deploy applications with improved accuracy and user experiences, meeting the demands of digital transformation.
Low-code platforms can reduce costs in various ways, including requiring less coding and development time, offering pre-built components and templates, and requiring less maintenance. A 2021 Microsoft-commissioned study by Forrester Consulting found that Power Platform and Azure reduced costs by 24%, primarily due to increased developer and DevOps efficiency and reduced spending on third-party solutions. These solutions also help reduce costs across organizations by building applications that eliminate manual processes, increase productivity, and enhance data-backed decision making.
By taking the Microsoft Power Platform Adoption Assessment, IT departments and organizations can accelerate their low-code journey and reap the benefits of increased efficiency, reduced costs, and better data insights. This assessment provides a quick and efficient way to identify opportunities to optimize and streamline efforts and to learn best practices for using low-code solutions to achieve business objectives. With low-code becoming increasingly important in the world of application development, now is the time to take advantage of this opportunity to stay ahead of the curve.
