Microsoft Teams as a Platform

Digitise, optimise and automate work processes with the Microsoft Power Platform. 

The Microsoft Teams platform offers more than just chat, video and telephony. With the seamlessly integrated Microsoft Power Platform, you can automate workflows, create apps, simplify processes and analyse data – all without in-depth programming knowledge. We accompany you with professional advice and ensure that your employees can get the most out of these modern technologies.

Power Platform for more efficient collaboration

Use Microsoft Teams as a platform and exploit the full potential of the application. With the integration of third-party applications, such as Microsoft Power Platform, Teams becomes the central experience hub for all employees and interactions, allowing you to react faster to new business requirements, increase productivity in your company and enable employees to collaborate more efficiently. Fundamental to this is data democratisation: the correct preparation, storage and centralisation of data, as well as data analyses, which you can easily create yourself using the Microsoft Power Platform and tailor to the needs of your company.

Low-code platforms are the future

Flexible, needs-based platforms that simplify everyday work even for those without experience in software development are becoming increasingly popular. According to Gartner, by 2024, 65% of all applications will be developed on the basis of so-called low-code platforms*. These enable you to create and use individual, professional applications, even if you have limited IT resources or minimal IT expertise. Platforms such as the Microsoft Power Platform are suitable for all companies looking to drive innovation by automating work processes.
