For those of you that are not familiar, Microsoft Power Apps is a no code or low code app development platform that empowers businesses to build professional web and mobile apps to solve their business challenges.
With the platform’s intuitive low-code capabilities, your team can easily and quickly create apps and streamline efficiencies to solve business problems faster.
There are a number of quantifiable benefits to using Microsoft PowerApps including:
Time to Market
Improved employee productivity
A reduction in app development and maintenance costs
Because Power Apps is a part of M365, you also retain the same level of security and management over the applications without extra input or overheads on your IT team.
This is really important because it means it is easy to manage and secure, you don’t need to learn a new management portal and look into that data security, it’s just an extension of what you’re already doing in M365.
By Power Apps being a part of M365, it seamlessly integrates with all your existing Microsoft products from Power BI, to Sharepoint, Excel and more.
