Christopher OdonoghueSAP Solution Lead at Johnson & Johnson
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"We use it a lot for creating workflows to transfer materials between plants, which is a signature part of what we do."
"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."
"This solution needs to be more customizable."
"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."
