Microsoft PowerApps Review

Allows developers and nontechnical users to build mobile applications from selectable templates

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the compatibility with other Microsoft components, the connectivity to Microsoft databases, the connectivity to other components on the Microsoft Azure environment, the connectivity to Office 365 and the connectivity to teams and the overall environment.

What needs improvement?

Microsoft should combine both the web and the mobile environment with all of the layers of development into one package. Currently, it's separated because Microsoft Power Apps does not cover all of these issues, so you have to connect to two different solutions. With Mendix for example, with one environment, the developers can create either a mobile app or a web app — it's an all-in-one environment. Microsoft Power Apps is not a service. For instance, if you want to connect to a database, it will be done via a database platform. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Microsoft PowerApps is both scalable and stable. 

How are customer service and technical support?

Microsoft PowerApps has a good support community.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is no more complicated than similar solutions. I'd say it's pretty straightforward. 

What other advice do I have?

Overall, on a scale from one to ten, I would give this solution a rating of eight.
