Microsoft Power Apps: what it is, what it is for and who it is for

What is Microsoft Power Apps?

Nicholas Bouillon. Power Apps is both an application development environment and a fast application responding to very specific business problems. The Power Apps environment makes it possible to make applications available to businesses in a very fast, flexible and scalable way. These apps can be deployed as simply as making a document available with One Drive, Teams, or SharePoint.

You can do the exercise of positioning Power Apps from different angles. First, from the perspective of those who produce it with the Power Apps studio? It’s a production studio called “low code”  , with little proprietary source code, to make custom applications.

Secondly, from the point of view of the collaborator who will consume this Power Apps, it is the answer to a business problem. The advantage is that the process of making the response integrates the person.

Third, if we take a little height, Power Apps is an application that captures information and sends it to a digital processing chain. In other words, my Power Apps will be used to intelligently feed my information system.
