We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The initial setup was very easy.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.It's a very workable solution because it's an automated way of making applications. You have a template, you have the application know-how,I can have a SharePoint list and connect with users through PowerApps to present the information.

Cons
I have always felt that you need an IT background to use this solution.The solution is evolving very fast and every month new features are introduced. Sometimes it's difficult to catch up with all the evolution that's happening. I had to focus on Power BI for a while and left PowerApps at the side for a couple of months and when I came back, it had changed its interface and moved components around.The product could be improved by making it a production application and enabling the export of apps.The editor in the Web browser could be improved because it can be difficult to implement the commands in the buttons.
