Top more 5 reasons to consider Microsoft PowerApps

Technology is always evolving, and there is no surprise that people now have more efficient solutions to most problems. However, to reach a smooth path for your business operations and build custom solutions, many decisions and a lot of collaboration must be carried out. This is where Microsoft PowerApps come in handy to most businesses.

What is Microsoft Power Apps?

In order to rapidly and easily establish business applications, Microsoft PowerApps is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that comprises connectors, services, apps, and database platforms.

Why do you need PowerApps in business?

microsoft power-appsPowerApps is the driving force behind Microsoft’s entry into low-code development platforms. The plan is for inexperienced app developers. As it is a method for developing business solution apps, we can refer to it as an interface that reduces actual development costs and coding. Let’s discuss the reasons below why you should consider Microsoft PowerApps for your business.

Fast, professional app development for your company is one of the main advantages of Power Apps. No longer do businesses have to wait for IT. If your IT staff has a significant backlog of projects, Power Apps is a lot faster than traditional development methods for creating and deploying apps.

You can simply design an interface, connect your data, and do much more with the low-code platform’s intuitive drag-and-drop interface and pre-built templates within weeks, if not days.

It’s always been challenging to integrate various phases and applications. Some businesses experience delays as a result of a lack of expertise or expensive costs associated with creating the platforms’ interfaces.

Existing tools, such as Office 365, Microsoft Excel, Onedrive, SQL, Salesforce, MailChimp, SharePoint Online, and Azure, are easy to integrate with PowerApps.

It’s crucial to remember that your employees are your most valuable resource when you have a distributed workforce. Participating in digital transformation is a great approach to raising morale and bringing people together.

Power Apps’ low-code functionality can enable your staff to participate in creating the apps they want to see. Additionally, it gives developers more freedom to make better applications. Power Apps also lessen the workload for IT.

What sets Power Apps apart from rival offerings is the “low-code approach to app production.” This indicates that anyone, regardless of technical proficiency, may make apps. It’s actually quite difficult to learn how to build apps on your own, so unless you’re a developer, it’s best to work with your Microsoft Partner on all except the simplest applications.

A low-code approach has several benefits, one of which is that an app may be delivered much faster than with conventional development methods and proper content management.

Power Apps shortens the time needed to create business applications for the three most widely used operating systems: iOS, Android, and Windows. This is accomplished by automating the workflows, utilizing a visual designer, and leveraging templates. Think about the time and money you will save by creating simple apps in-house. Thanks to Power Apps, new apps get into employees’ hands more quickly than before.

Microsoft to lower Power Apps License pricing July 2021

Microsoft has revised the licensing for Power Apps and Power Apps portals, lowering prices and simplifying per-app plans. We are here to provide you everything you need to know about Power app licensing in this Power Apps licensing guide.

The changes will take effect on October 1, and further, you will also find some extensions by the time. 

According to the Microsoft Licensing blog, the changes are part of an effort to “make the platform more accessible. So, whether customers are just beginning the use with a small number of users or deploying at scale will benefit them in the long run.

Power Apps pricing

The following prices will have the reduction as a result of the upcoming licensing changes:

  • The Power Apps per user plan will be available at $20 per user/month, down from $40 per user/month previously.
  • The Power Apps per-app plan will be available at $5 per user/app/month, down from $10 per user/app/month previously.
  • The per-app license will change so that the user can “run one app or access one portal, opposite to the current entitlement of two apps and one portal.” According to the company, this change brings the license in line with the intent of the plan.

Power Apps licensing

The plan will be available through all Microsoft’s commerce channels, including Volume Licensing (VL), Cloud Solution Provider (CSP), and web direct, with no license minimums or other purchase requirements. Plan entitlements remain unchanged, including users’ ability to run an unlimited number of apps and portals.

Microsoft MVP Jukka Niiranen believes Microsoft’s decision to update prices and extend discounts is intended to achieve broad adoption goals by simplifying licensing and reducing confusion:

Any temporary campaign price will not necessarily alleviate customers’ concerns about the long-term costs of licensing Power Platform premium features. As a result, we believe Microsoft is attempting to send a clear signal that they aim for widespread adoption of these low-code tools – not just for large business-critical apps for specific audiences.

So, in the platform admin center:

  • Set up the environment
  • Allocate the license to the capacity
  • Go to the add-ons section and click manage and allocate the add-ons to the environment.

Microsoft’s latest licensing update for Power Apps Portals: June 2021

According to Hayduk, the new pricing of $.32 per login for 25,000 logins and $.12 per login for 100,000 logins indicates a lot more realistic final cost. It will move the official pricing for high-volume portals clients into the same price range that would have been negotiated with Microsoft when the list price was an outrageous figure.

“This is fantastic. It prevents awkward talks where you have to say things like, ‘Yeah, this is what the price says, but at your volume, we can get you a better bargain,’ and so on, “Hayduk said.
