We migrated all the applications to the PowerApps Server and are sending some to other users.

I primarily use the solution for its business application. My business needed an application and so that's what we're using Power Apps for.

Our primary use case of this solution is for when we're integrating something and need to extract some data. We use PowerApps to extract the data and create our own module inside PowerApps and create our own app. We extract data and integrate it with PowerApps.

We're working on B2E applications and therefore we can't really get into specific use cases.

I am using Microsoft PowerApps for small apps for internal company management. I have been working only on small and simple apps. I haven't used it for making complex apps. I am using the latest version of Microsoft PowerApps.

We use this product to develop small apps that are used internally. Nothing major.

We're not in production yet. We're still very much in the early stages of this solution.

Microsoft has come at the right time. To come out with a RAD (Rapid Application Development) tool where you can develop your apps on the cloud much faster, and deploy them for multiple devices, whether it is mobile, cloud, laptops, or desktops. It is similar to Oracle APEX or Oracle developer tools where you just drag and drop into your application within minutes. The primary use case of this solution is case management reporting. If, for example, you have a set of engineers who have been assigned a particular case or project they will need to record all of their activities and their visits. Using the application created in PowerApps, they report everything, then it goes through a workflow. The workflow goes from recording the daily activities of the team for the specific project. The project then goes through a series of approvals and gets logged, completed, and the report is generated. Expenses are also being logged. We have Power BI as well, and it moves the data from the source to the data warehouse then generates a report. This is quite a short term, six-week engagement. We wanted to create an application and have it up and running within four to six weeks, rather than spending three to six months on bigger projects on the platform. We wanted it to be quick and fast. PowerApps is best suited for those cases where you have a small scenario and an application to support that project or scenario. You can call these departmental applications, which are needed on the fly. We create a much shorter development lifecycle and then deploy, and then people start using it. Take an example of the COVID-19 situation. We wanted all of our branches to log their COVID cases or what exactly are they doing daily to manage the COVID cases and to know what the process is. All of those details are logged into the COVID folder and then the reports are generated daily or weekly.

Our sales reps use it in the field on a daily basis. I get the data from there and then analyze it for my needs. We are also developing an application to start using Microsoft PowerApps. I would assume we have the latest version.

I am not a PowerApps user, but recently I have been evaluating and scoring no-code to low-code platforms (for developing mobile apps). The score chart is divided into sections, such as usability and features like the ability to test and multi-platform. Due to these evaluations, I learned the systems well enough to be able to build a sample application on all of these platforms and then fill in my evaluation.

We primarily use the solution as a general business process improvement. We use it as more of a digital transformation to eliminate some archaic manual processes that the business has built up over time. We're working to make everything more streamlined.

Once you have a cloud solution, for instance, and you work within a Microsoft suite, such as Dynamics CRM, ERP, or another dynamic platform and you want to extend it with a mobile app, Microsoft PowerApps is the right solution. Main limits will be the "vendor lock-in" concept, pricing for mass external users, and the training could be better. It is not intend to serve ex-Azur assets or on-prem.

Our primary use case is for the three locations in our company. We use it mainly for setting up meetings in our various conference rooms. Numerous choices need to be made - size of room, number of phones and projectors, date, time, number of participants. It's a great way to keep track of everything. We have 200 users. We're gold partners and I'm a lead consultant in our company.

The primary use case of this solution is to automate the interaction between documents and departments. For example, it's a flow for someone who has to validate a request, a file, or to review another file. A flow is put in place to avoid email communication.

We primarily use the solution to create and arrange a number of requests, including requests for expenses, requests for leave, requests for documents, etc. Depending on the type of business, we can customize the request application.

I'm a developer and we use the product for in-house development and finding in-house solutions. We have a developer relationship with Microsoft. I'm currently working on a smart parking app for a college here in Kuwait. It would be a big time saver and enable drivers to know where there are available parking spots when it's a busy time and would maximize free space usage. It would make things easier for everyone.

The primary use case of this solution is for developing Proof of concepts and for preparing some use cases to present or to showcase them to the customers. Nothing related to production. It's only for presentations and for showing the merchandise to the customers. The deployment model we are using is cloud-based.
