PowerApps is a “citizen application development platform” – allowing anyone to build web and mobile applications without writing code. The natural connection between Power BI and PowerApps makes it effortless to put insights in the hands of maintenance workers, teachers, miners and others on the frontline, in tailored and often task-specific applications that supercharge their productivity and make their work perhaps a little less tedious.
Like Power BI, PowerApps connects to hundreds of business systems and databases, making it easy to connect workers with the existing processes and data that make the business tick. And all the data captured in PowerApps can make its way right back to those very systems for further analysis. Microsoft Power Apps is a suite of apps, services, connectors, and data platforms that provide a rapid application development environment to build custom apps for unique business needs.
Using Power Apps, you can quickly build custom business apps that connect to your business data stored anywhere—from the underlying data platform, or Common Data Service, to nearly any online or on-premises data source, like Dynamics 365, SharePoint, Excel, Office, and even data sources not under the Microsoft umbrella. A component of the Microsoft Power Platform, which also includes Power BI, Power Virtual Agents, and Power Automate (formerly known as Microsoft Flow), Power Apps is what Microsoft refers to as a “citizen application development platform” because it allows anyone, regardless of programming experience, to build web and mobile applications without writing code.
