What Will Be Your Role?

As a Microsoft Power Platform Functional Consultant, you will empower organizations to automate business processes, develop their own rich app experiences and connect with customers better and faster. You will work with them to understand their goals and challenges, map these to what Power Platform can do, and design a custom solution that matches their needs. You may do some of the implementation yourself, or work with Technical Consultants who will take care of the more technical parts.

How to Leverage Your Background?

There is a wide range of professional backgrounds which translate well into a Power Platform career.

You may have built years of expertise into a specific industry, which will empower you to advise and support businesses from that very industry through Power Platform.

You may have spent time in a specific business function – such as customer service, accounting, HR – which will give you the expertise to guide and optimise business processes in that particular area through Power Platform.

If you are a developer or business analyst from another technology, this path can be great for you as well.

What Are Your Career Development Options?

After you have worked as a Power Platform Functional Consultant for some time, you can develop in these directions:

  • Become a Microsoft Power Platform Solution Architect – deepen your expertise and build more elaborate solutions for your customers.
  • Expand into other Microsoft Business Applications technologies, such as Dynamics 365 Customer Engagement.
  • Become a Microsoft Certified Trainer and help other consultants to get certified like you did.
