Hi community,

I am working as a Solution Architect at Australian Catholic University. 

My responsibility is to recommend solutions for the requirements given by business stakeholders. I do a market scan to find solutions that are available off the shelf. Sometimes, it happens that no COTS solution meets the business requirements and then I go for custom development using a low-code platform. ACU has both Microsoft Power Apps and SNOW (ServiceNow) platforms.

My question is on what criteria we should be deciding between the two platforms to recommend for the custom development - like size of application, integration feasibilities, internal or external users, reporting intensive applications, process flows intensive applications, etc. And for the given criteria, which platform between MS Power Apps and SNOW, is most suitable?

In other words, are there any clear guidelines that can help to decide the appropriate platform (MS Power Apps or SNOW) for developing business applications or enterprise applications?

Thanks,

Naveen

There's lots of unemployment in South Africa (even before COVID) and most people have no smartphone etc. We're a startup. Our app can send them a GSM message telling them there is work, here or there. 

I'm desperately seeking advice for what no-code backend database to use.

We already have 500,000 users on the database and 50 tables. 

Airtable is very expensive. We're also looking at Caspio.

I am great with Access and Webflow CSM seems very easy but limited to 50k records. I'm looking at Google Tables but not sure if that will do? 

I'm familiar with Zapier and Integromat. 

Any suggestions??
