4 Reasons businesses should innovate with Power Apps


Many SMBs are struggling with paper-based, manual business processes or having to respond to mounting modernization requests from its staff. The truth of the matter is, there is always an app that can solve your business problem but it may not exactly fit your unique processes, the cost may be prohibitive for a small to mid-size organization, or your IT may not have the skills or the time to maintain it.


The good news, with the recent advancement on low-code applications (LCAP), everyone in your team can become citizen developers - a breed of developers who aren't necessarily programmers by profession but know your business processes and can learn LCAP like Power Apps to automate it.


Power Apps is a no-code, low-code technology that simplifies the process of building custom applications to solve business challenges. Even non-technical users who have no traditional coding experience can use it to automate your business processes.


If you haven't utilized Power Apps yet, you are missing out on the below benefits. Here are four reasons why Power Apps may be right for you.



1 | Use existing talent.


You have talented people on your staff. Empower them to do more! All your employees can become citizen developers and problem solvers. Eliminate the IT skills gap so your team can build apps with minimal training.


Here's how:

  1. Learn the intuitive drag-and-drop visual building approach.

  2. Rely on the managed, pre-built platform with built-in integration.

  3. Empower existing IT teams to build more solutions, faster with no limits.

  4. Leverage free online resources to keep the learning barrier and cost of training low.


2 | Save money.


Off-the-shelf software is expensive and often has more functionality than you need. Build custom apps the cost-effective way - saving money in development, creation, and future maintenance.


Here's how:

  1. Empower productivity with streamlined and automated processes.

  2. Save over time with a fully managed data platform that requires less maintenance over time.

  3. Leverage existing investments by integrating with Dynamics 365, Office 365, Azure and other solutions.


3 | Accelerate development.


Creating custom apps can take months or even years. But when your business is growing, you need to be agile. Instead, build an app in hours. Catch up on your backlog or prevent it in the first place with accelerated app development.


Here's how:

  1. Simplify the process with low-code tools to easily build a prototype, test, learn and expand.

  2. Leverage intuitive point-and-click design, and choose from a large selection of templates or start from a blank canvas.

  3. Launch apps fast, add value continuously, and make improvements as needed.


4 | Scale.


As your business grows, your apps need to grow with you. It’s also vital that you keep up

with security and compliance requirements. Scale while also staying on top of management.


Here's how:

  1. Develop at scale without sacrificing quality, security, or control - no matter how many apps you are building.

  2. Leverage enterprise-grade administrative and governance features with one centralized view of all apps.

  3. Save time with a fully managed data platform to scale faster and minimize future maintenance.
