Power Apps

Power Apps is a suite of apps, services, connectors, and data platform that provides a rapid application development environment to build custom business apps. Power Apps can be connected to business data stored either in the underlying Dataverse platform or in various online and on-premises data sources (SharePoint, Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, Microsoft SQL Server, and so on). Apps built using Power Apps provides rich business logic and workflow capabilities and can be run in a browser or on mobile devices (phone or tablet). Power Apps also provides an extensible platform that lets pro developers programmatically interact with data and metadata, apply business logic, create custom connectors, and integrate with external data.

Power Apps, the low-code development component of Microsoft Power Platform is fast becoming standardized platform of choice. Recognized as a leader in low-code application development platforms by both Gartner and Forrester, Power Apps is your go-to resource for building custom apps that connect to your existing data and systems, without the need for code. The following statistics serve to further reinforce the limitless prospects Power Apps holds for the future.
