We will implement the Power Platform CoE starter kit and extend this to best fit your specific needs and use cases
The Microsoft Power Platform CoE Starter Kit is a collection of components and tools that are designed to help you get started with developing a strategy for adopting and supporting Microsoft Power Platform.
The Starter Kit is a template that might not match every organisation's requirements, so we work with customers to extend this to best fit their specific needs over the course of just a few days.
Using the tools to create better solutions which save time, money and resource is a key outcome, as well as ensuring that users are able to solve their business problems, while being part of a community they can rely on to ask for help.
This 5 day engagement involves:
Analysis & Discovery - during this first half day session, Akari invite key stakeholders to establish objectives and milestones to define the engagement. This will include current resource and skills within the business, priorities, timelines and other overarching considerations e.g. digital transformation strategy

The sessions will detail what components are contained within the toolkit, how to use them and keep up to date with the latest in Microsoft technologies, and what each of the components mean for your business
