5 tips to simplify and improve low-code governance within your organization

Title: Streamlining Low-Code Governance: A Comprehensive Overview

Introduction:
Low code development has revolutionized the way organizations create applications, empowering users with varying technical backgrounds to contribute to the development process. However, as the adoption of low-code platforms such as Microsoft Power Platform grows, the need for effective governance becomes paramount. In this write-up, we explore the essentials of low-code governance, covering key aspects like tenant-wide analytics, CoE Starter kit tool, managing app and flow ownership, handling departing users, and overseeing both Power Platform and Teams environments.

What is Low Code?
Low code is a development approach that enables users to create applications with minimal hand-coding and manual programming. It allows business users to participate in the application development process, accelerating the delivery of solutions while maintaining the organization's standards and security.

1. Tenant-wide Analytics:
Effective low-code governance begins with comprehensive analytics that provides insights into the entire tenant. This involves monitoring usage patterns, identifying potential bottlenecks, and ensuring compliance with organizational policies. Tenant-wide analytics empower administrators to make informed decisions, optimize resources, and address any emerging issues promptly.

2. CoE Starter Kit Tool:
The Center of Excellence (CoE) Starter Kit is a crucial tool for establishing and maintaining governance in low-code environments. It provides a set of templates, guidelines, and best practices to help organizations kickstart their CoE initiatives. This tool ensures consistency, standardization, and adherence to policies across the low-code development landscape.

3. Managing Quarantine, Change Ownership, and Users Who Left the Organization:
Effective governance includes managing the lifecycle of apps and flows, especially when users leave the organization or ownership changes are required. Proper procedures for quarantining, changing ownership, and handling departing users help maintain continuity and security, preventing unauthorized access or loss of critical applications.

4. Managing Power Platform and Teams Environments:
Governance extends beyond individual apps and flows to encompass the broader environment. Administrators must have tools and processes in place to manage Power Platform and Teams environments effectively. This involves overseeing permissions, monitoring usage, and ensuring that the overall landscape aligns with organizational objectives and compliance requirements.

5. Managing Managed Environments:
In low-code development, managing environments is crucial for maintaining a structured and secure landscape. This involves overseeing the creation, deployment, and administration of managed environments to ensure that they align with organizational standards and policies. Proper management of environments contributes to a stable and reliable low-code development ecosystem.
