Microsoft Power Platform redefines low-code with new features
Microsoft has announced a new product as well as a range of new features on its Power Platform. Designed to make low-code development faster, easier to use, and more innovative for all developers, including ‘citizen developers’ – a term defined by Gartner as an employee who creates application capabilities for consumption by themselves or others. A citizen developer is a persona, not a title or targeted role. They report to a business unit or function other than IT.
