Global research and advisory predict that by 2024, 65% of application development work will be low-code application
development. Since its first release in April 2016, Powerapp public preview has been slowly gaining momentum. Daryl
Plummer believes that the next round of innovation and efficiency will be enabled by non-traditional approaches.
PowerApps can be considered one such non-traditional approach toward programming.
What Is A PowerApp?
Microsoft PowerApps is a high productivity mobile and web application development platform that enables developers to
achieve more. It is a suite of information platforms, applications, and connectors to leverage the app development
environment of the Power platform. The Power platform has three components, namely Power BI, PowerApps, and Flow.
PowerApps is based on low code and provides a drag-and-drop user interface to build your mobile or web application.
PowerApps allows you to connect external data sources and store them directly inside applications. This comprehensive
suite will allow you to automate your business workflow and help you analyze captured data with ease. Unlike traditional
app programming, the app created using PowerApps will run on any mobile platform or web.
PowerApps can also communicate with other software Google Docs, Microsoft SQL, Dynamics CRM, and Oracle. Thus, PowerApp
development can be a worthy choice for a broad range of businesses and especially small businesses since they can
benefit the most from low code technologies. With the increasing preference for mobile apps and mobile-first user
experience, you should definitely consider PowerApps if you are going for your first mobile app.
