Following a thorough 26-criterion evaluation of the most popular low-code development platforms on the market, a recent report by Forrester identified Microsoft as the 2023 leader in low-code development platforms for professional developers. An analysis of a wide range of factors from user experience and security to pricing and innovation found that Microsoft’s Power Platform is ahead of the curve when it comes to low-code. 

The Forrester Wave: Low-Code Development Platforms for Professional Developers

Below we explore some of the key reasons why Microsoft’s Power Platform is leading the way in low-code development. 

Driving Innovation 

As the most widely adopted low-code platform on the market, Power Platform is rapidly accelerating the pace of solution development and innovation. The elements of Power Platform offer a user-friendly interface that allows users to rapidly create unique, tailored solutions with little to no code, drastically reducing development time. Organisations can quickly respond to specific challenges and develop custom solutions when necessary, allowing them to boost business innovation and remain agile in a competitive market. 

Infused with Artificial Intelligence 

Microsoft’s investment in OpenAI is supporting the company’s mission to help users do more with less. Harnessing the power of large language models, Microsoft has integrated Copilot, an AI-powered virtual assistant, across the elements of Power Platform. Copilot is helping developers to further accelerate the pace of creation by using natural language prompts to design and build solutions, automate tasks and reduce busywork. Recognised by Forrester as having the “best-in-class features for AI development”, Microsoft is transforming the world of work with its innovative generative AI enhancements.   

Powerful Collaboration and Integration 

Although Forrester recognises Power Platform as the low-code development platform of choice for professional developers, it has to be noted that Power Platform is an inclusive platform that empowers even citizen developers to create solutions. Microsoft’s collaborative features such as real-time co-authoring and commenting for low-code creators means that developers of any technical level can work together in designing business solutions.  

Moreover, Power Platform offers seamless integration and enhanced collaborative features with over 1,000 premade integration connectors. Enabling such integration means that businesses can optimise systems by automating tasks and streamlining workflows with action triggers.  

With over 30 million monthly active users, Power Platform is leading the way in low-code development.
