Power Platform Well-Architected

Design modern application workloads that are built to change and built to last.

Start with the pillars, and then align your design choices with the principles for each pillar. Build a strong foundation for your workload based on the design review checklists, recommendation guides, and tradeoffs. Use the Assessment to help you identify the areas where you need to devote your attention and resources.
