As the demand for business applications continues to outpace supply of development capacity, organizations are leaning upon no-code /low-code solutions to distribute application development. While helping to meet demand and provide competitive advantage, this has led to a sprawl of development which introduces new challenges.

Rockhop can work with your organization in structuring a Power Platform Co-op and applications support service to meet ongoing application needs. We work with our clients to streamline demand management, match business objectives and investment decision making, structure enabling governance models, and address ongoing application development and support.
