Microsoft PowerApps Valuable Features

The most valuable aspect of the solution is the fact it is highly customizable. All types of forms can be created to collect information, pictures, and files. With PowerApps, you can connect your application to a wide variety of databases and applications where your data lives to read or write to it. If a connector doesn't exist, it's also possible to create a custom one. With a plan starting at 10 USD, it makes it very affordable for anyone to create a low-code, no-code application. Very little costs are needed to run the solution. Furthermore, PowerApps has a community plan for free, and usually offer a trial period of about 2 months. Plenty of time and potential to learn, discover and develop. The solution has a large community, so it's quite easy to find tutorials, how-to, and help. PowerApps is part of the PowerPlatform from Microsoft, with Flow, or Power BI and enhances the possibilities to collect data, to automate processes, and to create rich and visually appealing data visualizations.

Microsoft PowerApps is a no-code solution. I would say that the most valuable features are the user interface, navigation, and business routes. It quickly drags and drops. It doesn't take much coding, there is no coding in fact. You drag and drop, select a few things to configure, and then read those applications in the user screens. With business rules, you can just select and you don't need to elaborate coding or backend code. This way, it's much easier to write or create those applications using their features.

The solution is really strong. I'm not an engineer. I'm an economist. Even without being an engineer, I can handle working with the data warehouse. It offers good speed and excellent design. If I want to process for payments, I can do it fast and easy in Power Apps. If I need to process information from Facebook, from Twitter, or other places, it's really wonderful. Overall, the tool is very democratic. It's easy for anyone to use. You don't have to be a professional or well-versed in technology. View full review »

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. The solution works well with Microsoft Teams. We used to use Skype for Business, and now we rely on Microsoft Teams Enterprise E5. There's great integration with Dynamics 365, Office 365, and more. It's great that everything is easily connected. We can use the solution from cell phones, tablets, or computers. It works on every platform and in every environment. View full review »
