With PowerApps, companies transform and digitise their business operations by using custom modular apps that are easy to create and design because they do not require coding experience. Your business can, too, leverage the software-as-a-service (SaaS) to convert manual processes into automated tasks for internal business use, simplifying operations.
PowerApps uses connectors, services, apps and data platforms to build business applications for mobile and desktop, according to specific business needs, quickly and seamlessly. The goal is to streamline and automate daily operation in a secure environment.
For example, you may want to automate workflows or integrate external and internal business data into one platform, since PowerApps can connect with internal Dynamics 365 ERP and CRM functionality, as well as popular third-party applications and data sources such as Salesforce and Dropbox.
PowerApps can offer great value for business functionality in mobile environments, especially for productivity, collaboration and data management by integrating with Office tools and other native Microsoft apps, for example, Teams and SharePoint.
If you have already invested in Dynamics 365 or Office 365 functionality, you can extend your plan with the PowerApps module or upgrade your solution to access PowerApps. You will need a license subscription for Microsoft Office 365 Enterprise E1 or a higher plan, depending on which features you want to access, or a comprehensive Dynamics 365 plan.
Office 365 features all the popular desktop applications like Word, Excel and Powerpoint plus a host of new web enabled communication & collaboration tools such as Skype for Business, Yammer and OneDrive. You can access Office 365 anytime, anywhere on any device.
- For most businesses, the standard PowerApps subscription (plan 1) is ideal for creating apps that connect to all your enterprise data sources, including Common Data Service. Your business can design simple apps using access data stored in apps, cloud services or on-premise, basic logic and premium connectors.The alternative (plan 2) is a better fit if your business requires more advanced logic processes, real-time workflows, customisation for multi-stage operations, such as custom plugins, and model-driven apps.Lastly, new enhanced capabilities, AI Builder and PowerApps Portals, allows users to train AI models to automate tasks and processes and extend the reach of their custom business apps.
