Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"I can have a SharePoint list and connect with users through PowerApps to present the information.""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,""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 initial setup was very easy.""The most valuable feature is the simple data connectivity components.""Can design apps quickly and can connect to any database.""The solution is very good. It's very full. You can do almost anything.""There's a lot of online knowledge on the solution, to the point where new users can basically teach themselves how to use the solution."

More Microsoft PowerApps Pros »

"The most valuable features are case management and integration services.""While Pega technical support is okay, it also depends on the issues you need help with and who your contact is with Pega.""Powerful, full-featured business process management with excellent support""The solution's most valuable feature is its quick setup. Nowhere else you can create a good-looking application this quick. It's a fairly robust system.""The interface is quite simple and easy to use, even for beginners.""The stability has been good. We haven't had any issues.""It is easy to use, easy to understand, easy to implement and easy to enhance and we can do it as a Cloud. Also it is very user friendly.""The most valuable feature is the situational layer cake."

Cons
"The editor in the Web browser could be improved because it can be difficult to implement the commands in the buttons.""The product could be improved by making it a production application and enabling the export of apps.""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.""I have always felt that you need an IT background to use this solution.""Integration with databases and other tools needs to be improved.""Customer support needs improvement.""This tool doesn't have an internal database. It only relies on the data layer of Microsoft Cloud.""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."

More Microsoft PowerApps Cons »

"The unit testing needs to improve, as well as the user interface.""What should be included is some UI features and maybe some integrations. This includes documentation on how the UI works.""Lack of stronger cloud support is somewhat inconvenient for users and implementation.""The pricing model needs to be improved. Right now, it's too expensive.""Pega currently is trying to add chatbots to their systems, and it's still quite immature. This part definitely needs to be improved.""The solution would benefit from more integration capabilities.""Sometimes when we are patching some data from the database, we are getting added as a timeout.""Compared to other BPM products, the interface is somewhat complex, so the usability could be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"If you start to use any premium connectors that are not stored in a SharePoint list or on an Excel workbook, then it costs $4 per user per month. If you want unlimited, it's about $16 per month for unlimited apps, and unlimited connectors.""The company has a subscription where you can use certain features for free, but there are features that require a premium subscription to use.""The enterprise-level costs a great deal of money, and you have to purchase additional licenses to scale it.""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.""There are two licensing costs, one is pay-as-you-go, or you can develop it for one year.""This is not an expensive product and there are no licensing fees.""It is not expensive. There is no licensing cost.""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."

More Microsoft PowerApps Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The licensing fees are based on the number of users.""May be somewhat more expensive than other solutions initially, but should have enhanced return on investment.""The price of this solution, including installation and configuration, is comparable to competing vendors.""The pricing is pretty good, compared to other similar products.""It's a user-based license where, as you scale the numbers of users, the price increases."
