Technology can be defined as the application of latest knowledge. It has changed the way we do our work today, different what it was a few years ago. Mobile revolution has played a significant role in this regard. To take it a step further, Microsoft has decided to open up a limited preview of its PowerApps service. It is an enterprise service for innovators that allows them to connect, create and share business apps on different platforms like iOS, Android and of course, Windows Devices.
The primary objective behind developing PowerApps is to enable all the business users to harness the power of data scattered throughout their organizations with no requirement of knowing how to write a line of code. Potential audiences for controlling and managing PowerApps include, Business users, professional developers and IT pros, who will control and manage PowerApps.
Business users can quickly create apps that have the innate ability to function on any device via Microsoft Office-like experience. They can find templates to get started quickly and a visual designer to automate workflows. Besides, they can use built-in connections to connect PowerApps to cloud services such as Office 365, Dropbox and OneDrive and on-premises systems including SharePoint, SQL Server, SAP and more.
For developers and IT professionals PowerApps feature Azure App Service and other services that can help them build additional data connections and APIs to any existing business systems.
Standout feature of PowerApps is that users can save PowerApps locally or in the cloud and providing other users access to a PowerApp is as simple as sharing a document in Office 365 today. Microsoft claims PowerApps is intended to accelerate the process of how business apps are built and balanced between IT and business users.
