Today, skilled software developers are in high demand, and that demand is only set to grow. Initially, low-code development was seen as a way to democratise development and was deemed too restrictive for professional developers, but that is no longer the case. Now, more than ever, it offers a way for professional developers to achieve more by reducing repetitive tasks and delivering opportunities to be more creative during the software development process.

Of course, to be able to achieve this, developers need to use the right set of tools, enabling them to prototype, build, and optimise applications quickly. In this way, low-code technologies, like Microsoft PowerApps, are fundamental for any developer wanting to maximise their abilities and deliver innovative solutions faster. Meanwhile, AI and automation tools embedded into these low-code platforms are becoming increasingly important, enabling developers to automate tasks, generate ideas, and get insights that can further drive innovation.



The union of generative AI and low-code development is becoming a driving force for innovation on multiple fronts. For professional developers, AI-driven code generation, enabled by generative models, significantly reduces the time spent on repetitive coding tasks. Developers can focus their energy on creative problem-solving, crafting innovative features, and refining user experiences. Generative AI also plays a pivotal role in content creation. It can craft realistic text, generate artwork, and even produce functional code snippets. This content can be seamlessly integrated into low-code applications, enhancing the user experience and expanding the capabilities of the software.

Furthermore, generative AI can be leveraged to streamline the development of AI-driven applications. It can assist in training machine learning models, processing natural language, and automating data analysis, all within the low-code environment. This results in the rapid creation of intelligent applications that provide data-driven insights and predictive analytics.


The ability of professional developers to leverage low-code and AI technologies to deliver cutting-edge solutions in record time comes down to the tools available to them. Microsoft is renowned for empowering developers and offers several tools and solutions that are redefining software development:


Professional developers can leverage low-code technologies across the entire development portfolio, from building a full low-code application and extending it with custom connectors to building advanced APIs and components for citizen developers or creating individual features. By building on a low-code foundation, developers enhance productivity across the business while maintaining control. Moreover, the collaborative approach fosters innovation by expanding the development team and encouraging creative solutions. In fact, by using the tools we've highlighted above, there are many opportunities for developers to accelerate innovation, including:

  • Enhancing Applications with AI - AI offers great potential to enhance applications by automating workflows and deriving value from data. While custom coding AI solutions is complex, tools such as Copilot generate code and suggest improvements, saving a significant amount of time and enabling developers to easily build, train, and publish AI models without coding them.
  • Connecting Line-of-Business Apps - By combining low-code Power Apps with APIs, developers can scale line-of-business (LOB)functionality across the business without needing to write and maintain extensive applications. Developers can quickly create custom connectors and leverage AI capabilities to enhance data connectivity,fostering seamless communication between LOB applications and promoting efficiency.
  • Automating Business Processes - Professional developers can apply their experience in automation testing and deployment to automate tasks for other users. With drag-and-drop automation interfaces, developers can quickly set up flows for custom applications. Business process flows deliver a streamlined user experience and help increase user adoption.


While independently, AI and low-code tools are highly sought-after technologies for professional developers, together, they have the power to accelerate innovation even further. The tools we’ve highlighted are just some of those available from the Microsoft Power Platform, providing professional developers with a rich set of resources for creating innovative applications. They offer AI capabilities, coding assistance, data integration, security, and development environments that empower developers to focus on creative solutions, enhance user experiences, and streamline development processes. Ultimately, the toolset is designed to accelerate innovation and provide professional developers with the tools they need to not only meet the demands of modern software development but to innovate to meet future demands.
