Governance and Analytics for the Power Platform By Chris O’Brien | MS Ignite the Tour.

PowerApps is on by default, no admin work needed to enabled unless we want to de-active it for them.

So your employees will start creating their own Apps, great !

We might get scarred by the fact of all users creating PowerApps.

At this stage we start asking questions such as:

  • What are these users connecting to.
  • Which accounts are they using
  • Are these apps used for critical processes.
  • What happens if the app breaks ?
  • Who should support these apps ?
  • …etc.

At this stage, we might find ourselves in a situation where :

A user calls IT and says “I need support with my”, the typical answer the users will get is :

We did not create the app, we can’t support it.

 

Thankfully, there is the Power Apps governance Framework ! which provides us with

Microsoft’s PowerApps Center Of Excellence Starter Kit.

(Well I agree, it is a looong name), available from —> https://github.com/microsoft/powerapps-tools/tree/master/Administration/CoEStarterKit
