Managed Environments for the Power Platform, which previewed this summer and from which many companies have set up with an easy click in order to help their IT admins have better visibility and more power over low-code resources, is now generally available.
Microsoft Power Platform enables companies to make the shift to the latest low-code governance through a central low-code platform that enables users to experience collective elements. It also offers IT admins the ability to oversee all their low-code assets from the main framework, allowing them to see every asset being built and govern at scale.
Before, IT admins would have to manually install the Centre of Excellence kit and then create and implement governance workflows that at one point in the future would need updates in order to keep up with changes in the company. This is one of the many reasons that Microsoft has created and updated the Managed Environments to streamline and modernise governance at scale.
By utilising things like weekly emails, IT admins will no longer need to navigate the admin centre to just review items but have the complete experience automatically configured for them with just one click, sending it straight to their inbox, where admins can oversee their Microsoft Power Platform usage.
Admins can also use app-sharing controls to reduce any needless app sharing and adjust the number of users in the environment that an app can be shared with. This allows admins the peace of mind they need whilst waiting for any approval needed. Additionally, improved vision into any company data loss prevention policies relating to Managed Environments can also lower any difficulty in detecting risks and reviewing policies.
Excellent governance right from the beginning
By utilising app-sharing controls, Microsoft Power Platform admins gain and keep control over those users who have permission to use those apps, within an environment that can regulate the number of users and security groups before apps have been evaluated by IT. Through Managed Environments, IT admins can take the necessary steps to guarantee any and all apps are correctly created from the beginning in conjunction with a personalised onboarding experience that shows first-time creators the particular content and guidelines needed to help their business.
A further innovative way for IT admins to make sure any apps being created are done so correctly and before those apps have been moved to a particular environment is to make use of the solution checker tool. This is to be included in Managed Environments in the recent future. This tool can be designed with lots of performance, security, and dependability rules that will alert those in charge every time a damaging solution is introduced or, at the very least, constrain those solutions from being brought into a managed environment.
This need for control and governance is where the Casper365 Governance Centre can help.
