With the Right People, Great Things Can Happen

AppRising is committed to reimagining the way business applications are designed and built - with people at the centre. We believe in harnessing the power of design thinking to bridge the gap between IT and business teams. We champion empathy, collaboration, and iterative problem-solving to create applications that truly meet user needs and drive business success.

By 2025, 70% of new applications developed by enterprises will use low-code or no-code technologies, up from less than 25% in 2020 - Gartner

Unlike other business application consultancies, we do not build business applications for you.

We work with you to empower your teams build together.

What We Offer

Hi, I'm Hamish

A business applications consultant & coach with a passion for human-centered design and innovation.


As the founder of AppRising, I'm dedicated to reimagining the way business applications are designed and built. My goal is to bridge the gap between IT and business teams through collaboration, empathy, and iterative problem-solving. I firmly believe in the power of low-code platforms like Power Platform and Microsoft Dynamics 365, and I'm on a mission to empower organisations to create user-centric applications that drive business success.

I'm a seasoned consultant and leader with over 15 years of experience in the Microsoft Dynamics 365 and Power Platform space. I've helped clients across a range of industries in both New Zealand and the UK deliver successful software projects that have transformed their businesses.


As a Microsoft MVP, I'm dedicated to sharing my expertise with others and supporting the Dynamics 365 and Power Platform communities. You can find me on LinkedIn, where I'm always happy to chat and share insights with fellow professionals.

When I'm not busy doing that, I'm probably out kite surfing or wing foiling.
