Microsoft Power Platform is a line of business intelligence, app development, and app connectivity software applications. Microsoft developed the Power Fx low-code programming language for expressing logic across the Power Platform. It also provides integrations with GitHub and Teams.
The Power Platform family of products includes:
1) Power BI, a software for visualizing data with different kinds of charts. It competes with tools like Tableau
2) Power Apps, graphical software for writing low-code custom business applications
3) Power Automate, formerly Microsoft Flow, a toolkit similar to IFTTT for implementing business workflow products
4) Power Automate Desktop, a Robotic process automation software for automating graphical user interfaces (acquired in May 2020)
5) Power Virtual Agents, software for writing chatbots
The Anypoint Platform includes various components such as Anypoint Design Center, which allows API developers to design and build APIs; Anypoint Exchange, a library for API providers to share APIs, templates, and assets; and Anypoint Management Center, a centralized web interface to analyze, manage, and monitor APIs and integrations.
The Delivery Manager role is much like a Programme Manager role and typically links with the client’s Project /Programme Manager role to ensure that any project plans align to the MuleSoft Outcome Based Delivery (OBD) framework to achieve the agreed business outcomes.
The OBD framework provides a structured set of work streams, tasks and sub-tasks for the client to become fully enabled in an API-led project delivery as part of the business operating model. It also provides best practice guidance on the required business and IT culture modifications and governance to support the correct API ownership approach. The 3 OBD streams are; 1) Business Outcomes, 2) Technology Delivery and 3) Org Enablement.
Deluxe Data International Operations (formally The Software Partnership)
Deluxe Data International Operations, Wingate House, Northway, RUNCORN
I started work at 12pm, September 3rd 1990. The Runcorn office started life as The Software Partnership (first at Wingate Drive in Timperley and then Norton House in Crowngate and subsequently Wingate House in 1992 on Northway) in the mid-eighties (co-founded by Nigel Walsh) but was purchased in 1994 by the American company Deluxe Electronic Payment Systems. This in turn is part of Deluxe Corporation which is one of the largest cheque printers and debit transaction processors in the US, and a major supplier of secure card management systems. The company changed to EFD eFunds in 2000 and is now Fidelity National Information Services (FIS) (at 2007) based in Daresbury, Warrington. The Software Partnership started out developing on-line banking systems for Tandem and UNIX systems.
