MSDW Podcast: The challenges of governing and scaling automation

June 23 2022

This episode is sponsored by Mavim.

As use of Microsoft Power Platform has grown, so has its influence in customers' business process management initiatives. But Power Platform is almost never the entire story when it comes to governance of processes, IP, and broader challenges like enterprise architecture.

Our guest on this episode, Lennard van Leuven of Mavim, talks with us about how dedicated BPM tools like Mavim can work alongside Microsoft Power Apps and Power Automate to provide comprehensive management and governance of IP and business processes at the enterprise or department level. We discuss different kinds of automation, what the term "hyper-automation" means to Mavim, and what Microsoft's product roadmap means for the future of business process management initiatives.
