Why is Niels so keen on Microsoft’s Power Platform?
Oct 27, 2022
In his spare time, Niels enjoys spending his time swimming, riding a bike or going for a run. The step to competing in triathlons was therefore a logical result. On a professional level, Niels works as a Microsoft 365 consultant at CTG in Belgium, with a primary focus on the Microsoft Power Platform.
Niels’ Power Platform journey started several years ago, when he got the chance to start exploring the new platform. Niels was completely hooked from the start. Of course, we were curious to know why! “When I gained a deeper knowledge of the platform by getting Microsoft certifications and working on real-life projects, I started to see all the platform's capabilities to help clients meet their business needs on a short notice. By leveraging the low-code tools provided in the Power Platform, it is easier to translate business processes into solutions that really help our clients, tailored to their specific needs and requirements.
The Power Platform allows us to automate time consuming, repetitive business processes and provides our clients with application interfaces that contain company branding and excellent user experience. Our clients also gain detailed insights on how these solutions are helping their company, what is going on in their organisation and how can they further improve the way of working.”
Is Niels the only one working in Microsoft Power Platform at CTG? “Not at all! At CTG, we have a dedicated team that is specialized in working with the Power Platform. Actually, we see a continuous increase in demand for these types of skillsets. We have a variety of clients who are leveraging solutions built on the Power Platform by CTG, and they really reap the benefits of the increase in productivity and efficiency.”
DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION. HOW CAN WE HELP YOU?
CTG helps clients identify business processes where there is room for improvement and guides them towards adopting the Power Platform. In some cases, the clients themselves start identifying new use-cases, where we work together with them into turning these cases into business enhancing solutions so they can meet their digital needs. We help them get a better understanding of the platform, how these tools can help them digitize their organisation, centralize their data and work seamlessly together with their other products from within or outside of the Microsoft ecosystem.
MICROSOFT POWER PLATFORM: THE ANSWER TO EVERYTHING?
“When specific business needs cannot be solved with only tools from within the Power Platform or the Microsoft 365 suite, the platform needs to be expanded with additional custom development. At CTG, we also have in-depth expertise in custom development, and combining these skillsets makes us the ideal partner for what we call 'a new generation of Fusion Development'.
Leveraging the tools from within Microsoft 365, the Power Platform and if needed, expand these with custom development, makes CTG your ideal partner to help you in your digital journey. We also make sure the right governance is in place, so that CTG or the client themselves can manage the aftercare of the Power Platform solutions."
WHAT ABOUT THE FUTURE?
“The future looks bright,” says Niels. Both for his triathlon efforts and for Microsoft Power Platform. “The capabilities of the Power Platform are increasing as we speak, which makes me excited about what the future of this platform will bring and how we at CTG can help our partners achieve their business needs on their journey through this digital world.”
