Last June, we launched the Center of Excellence (CoE) Starter Kit – a set of templates that are designed to help you get started with developing a strategy for adopting, maintaining and supporting the Power Platform, with a focus on Power Apps and Power Automate.
One of the key principles of administering the Power Platform is having full visibility into how your organization is using Power Apps and Power Automate.
