The Government Plan

What is governance?

Governance is the set of policies, roles, responsibilities, and processes that direct and control how an organisation’s business users, developers, and IT teams cooperate to achieve business goals.

What is the government plan?

The governance plan is based on the work of orientation and discovery of the different possibilities of control and security of Power Platform together with the necessary departments of the company.

The governance plan establishes configuration guidelines that adjust the ideal balance of security and good application development practices in line with business needs. Consolidates policies between the main departments of the company, both between the service management (IT) part and the business areas that use technology (including IT)

Who is the Power Platform government for?

Business and technical users

Power Platform services are designed for business users (citizen developers) and technical users (pro developers) to improve company processes by using these tools.

IT departments

IT departments need to monitor the platform to help users in the use of it and the control of errors and even prevent resources that are not necessary from being consumed.
