We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The model that allows you to establish flow automation is getting a lot of traction from the customer side. It offers a lot of flexibility."
"We get feedback on a real-time basis, which is actually very useful for us."
"For our purposes, it is quite scalable."
"The cloud aspect has been great. We don't have to do a lot of research in order to begin integrations. It's so easy to integrate with other solutions."
"There are a lot of different applications; you can connect PowerApps, or Flow, or Power BI to many different types of applications to interchange data."
"The most valuable feature is the compatibility with other Microsoft components."
"The initial setup was very easy."
"The most valuable feature is automized processes."
"One of the most useful features is the code is customizable, we can make it our own."
"We really appreciate the process automation and how can you create human tasks as one of your processes."
"Its user interface can be better. It is good, but it can be a bit clunky."
"It would be good if this solution supports standard BPN operations. We are thinking of switching to a BPM solution next year because it is not a BPM solution."
"The connectors are the main components that reference the data sources, and these need to be improved."
"The flexibility and the user interface need improvement."
"One of the major problems with it is what PowerApps calls the delegation warning. Regardless of what platform, data source, et cetera, that you're using, you can't retrieve more than 2000 records."
"The availability of templates needs to be improved. I understand that the ecosystem around it is still developing, but we need more templates. I would like the entire ecosystem around it to improve. I would recommend adding AI components. Even though we can always connect to Azure for AI components, they should slowly start looking at adding some AI components to PowerApps so that out-of-the-box learning can be applied to process flows. Salesforce has the Einstein layer that works along with license platforms. PowerApps should also have something similar."
"There are occasional performance challenges."
"The pricing structure needs to be improved, the current information is confusing."
"The integration could improve."
"The solution needs to continue to enhance the low-coding feature within the product itself."
"We use the Office 365 package, and Microsoft PowerApps is a part of the package. We don't pay any separate price for this. There are no additional costs. We just pay for the Office 365 package."
"It is comparable to other similar solutions."
"It is not expensive. There is no licensing cost."
"The cost for licensing could be lower."
"One of the main things about this solution is the price. The cost for Salesforce is $35, $25, or $10 per user per month. PowerApps costs much less than that. It is at a good price point. It may change in the future, but at this point, its price is pretty fine."
"The pricing is too expensive and the licensing system is complicated. There are many pages of instruction on how to do the calculations for the price."
"The company has a subscription where you can use certain features for free, but there are features that require a premium subscription to use."
"There are two licensing costs, one is pay-as-you-go, or you can develop it for one year."
PowerApps enables a broad range of app scenarios to be created that infuse digital transformation into manual and outdated processes. Use both canvas and model-driven apps to build PowerApps that solve business problems for task and role-specific scenarios like inspections, field sales enablement, prospect to cash, and integrated marketing views.
