No coding, no problem – Mobile Apps using PowerApps from Microsoft

PowerApps is a platform as a service (PaaS) from Microsoft comprising of apps, services, connectors, and data platform that provides a rapid application development environment to build custom apps for your business needs. PowerApps allows building custom business apps that can run on iOS, Android and Windows. Such apps can connect to business data stored either in the underlying data platform (Common Data Service for Apps) or in various online and on-premises data sources (SharePoint, Excel, Office 365, Dynamics 365, SQL Server, etc.).

There are various features and advantages of Power Apps –

  • Develop apps without prior coding knowledge: PowerApps formulas were designed using Excel formulas thus allowing the business users the ease of creating formulas for this logic. It provides a drag-and-drop user interface. Also, there are ready-made templates available allowing faster development of simpler apps without prior coding knowledge in JavaScript, HTML, or C#. For complex apps, one needs to have some coding knowledge.
  • PowerApps is a Mobile App platform: PowerApps takes care of the differences between the operating systems and allows the apps to run across iOS, Android and Windows mobile platforms.
  • Workflow automation and data integration is easily possible: PowerApps easily connects with other services of Microsoft like Excel, OneDrive, SharePoint, etc. and some non-Microsoft services like on-premise systems, Salesforce and cloud services like SQL, Google Drive, and DropBox. It makes workflow automation and data integrationextremely feasible.
