Power Platform for Manufacturing

Cloud transformation, modernization, management, and governance with Microsoft’s next-generation cloud application platform

Forward-thinking manufacturers are quickly and cost-effectively embracing Microsoft’s cloud application platform to modernize legacy applications. This makes them more competitive and responsive to increasing customer demands, while at the same time improving efficiencies in operations: supply chain, production, field service, personnel management, training, inventory management, and deployment.

We are experiencing a transition in the way organizations use, buy, and operate software. While in the past, the focus was on implementing point solutions to address specific business needs, today’s forward-looking organizations are taking a platform-first approach to deploying solutions—through integration with other business processes and data — in less time at a lower cost. With hundreds of API connectors, Microsoft’s cloud application platform, including Power Platform, Azure, and Modern Workplace, helps them modernize legacy technology, meet new business needs, reimagine existing applications, and enable citizen developers, regardless of their existing tech stack.

HSO’s approach to Power Platform adoption

HSO’s cloud application platform team includes proven, world-leading experts in adoption, enterprise management, governance, and scaled solution development of Microsoft’s Power Platform in large enterprise organizations. Applying Power Platform Adoption Framework best practices —authored by several experts on our team—we guide our clients on their journey. This Center of Excellence (CoE) as a Service approach begins with an assessment that leads to ongoing business value acceleration, enterprise management maturation, solution development, and application migration.

Landing Zone: Getting established in your cloud transformation

We begin with a Power Platform Assessment to understand current state and create actionable next steps to build the platform. We’ll then test our initial landing zone by developing and deploying at least one high-priority solution identified in our envisioning.

Enterprise Management: The foundation for success

Five pillars and 22 component dimensions are continuously matured in the organization. The Enterprise Management Maturity Model helps us assess the maturity of enterprise management, and identify both organizational risk and opportunities to generate new business value.

Business Value: Using our Roadmap to drive return on investment

The roadmap is a prioritized backlog of workloads that are candidates for migration to or new solution development on the platform. It allows the organization to project Power Platform’s business value over time. Most enterprises will in time identify thousands of candidate workloads as they expand the platform’s reach to include more business groups. It is therefore important to prioritize highest impact workloads.

Solution Development: Building beautiful and useful things

HSO’s development teams employ a proven development framework focused on high-impact workloads and as part of a fusion developer, app factory approach to scaling solution development on Power Platform and across the Microsoft Cloud. With over 700 API connections to enterprise platforms like SAP, Oracle and JD Edwards, we can design and deploy a solution to fill a number of process gaps within your existing tech stack, regardless of your current ERP or CRM.
