The topic of governance quickly triggers uncertainty among those responsible – and furtive eye-rolling among colleagues. After all, in everyday life, rules often seem to slow down processes. However, governance runs through all areas of a company. For those responsible, it quickly becomes a Sisyphean task to keep track and enforce the rules – and not just in IT.
So a tough struggle that leaves everyone involved feeling dissatisfied?
There is another way: our experts have implemented the Center of Excellence (CoE) as part of numerous projects. With the starter kit, governance, security, and compliance can be managed centrally – from application lifecycle management (ALM) and data loss prevention (DLP) to a sustainable environment strategy with development, test, and production systems.
The Center of Excellence ensures standards, consistency, and governance for the Power Platform. Various solution components and tools are available for this, which are individually adapted to the needs of your company. For example, the CoE starter kit includes multi-tenant resource information, templates, an innovation backlog, and Power BI analytics for monitoring and controlling apps, workflows, and licenses. And should you require further Center of Excellence expansion options, you can totally rely on our team of experts.
The Center of Excellence Starter Kit includes components and tools that provide a solid foundation for governance, security, and compliance within the company. After the standard installation, further customizations can, of course, be made.
Using a Power BI dashboard, the CoE displays all activities resulting from the Microsoft Dataverse, Power Apps, and Power Automate. This gives those responsible a comprehensive view of compliance implementation and license usage.
Which applications should be used and according to which rules is ideally decided by an innovation board in which all departments are represented. In a workshop, we show how companies can make competent IT decisions about this on their own.
Corporate governance refers to the internal control and management structures of a company. It is commonly referred to as the organization’s “constitution”. Compliance, on the other hand, means the active implementation of the governance guidelines in practice. It is usually translated as “conformity to rules”.
The idea differs from the old approach of “command and control” in which one person held complete decision-making authority, but also responsibility. Governance is intended to enable greater efficiency and productivity by enabling many to make their own decisions – but this in turn leads to more complex responsibilities. The core principles of governance are fairness, accountability, responsibility, and transparency of structures and processes.
Compliance encompasses all rules and measures to adhere to established ethical standards, for example, to combat corruption or to protect sensitive data. It also includes occupational health and safety and ways for whistle-blowers to report irregularities. The guidelines are usually laid down in a code of conduct.

“By digitizing our audit process, we have not only greatly reduced the manual effort in our department, but also increased our legal certainty in the area of compliance.
