Have you heard about MS Power Apps? No? If that’s the case, it’s fair to assume that you still haven’t started your business transformation journey. And it’s about time to do so.
In the era of digitalization and a fast-paced business environment, more and more organizations are looking for easy and fast ways to transform their processes and increase agility. With increased employee productivity and reduced development costs as the main goals, many of them have chosen MS Power Apps as a solution. Why is that?
It’s simple really. MS Power Apps is a service for building and using custom business apps that connect your data and work across the web and mobile – without the time and expense of custom software development. It is a suite of apps, services, connectors, and data platforms that offers a variety of combinations in order to create a business app that suits your every need. That is why these low code solutions applications are easy to build if you have a clear idea of what you seek and how to combine different elements at your disposal. For example, it is possible to create a retail execution app for following merchandising parameters in just a couple of clicks or a banking decision approval and signing an application for loans without any paperwork. And all that can be done in just a couple of weeks, including the analysis, implementation, testing, and deployment processes. Sounds great, right?
It genuinely does, as MS Power Apps allows you to get started quickly by building and launching apps right away using prebuilt templates, drag-and-drop simplicity, and then roll out continuous improvements as needed. This service enables the creation of intuitive visual tools based on data integration and distribution from different sources such as SharePoint, Excel, Dynamics 365 and SQL Server. This makes reporting and data access easier and more streamlined than ever before. Also, built applications are highly tailored which means that each detail is customized in order to optimize a specific task or role. By using different connectors and plugins, these business applications can cover different aspects of the business process by combining several segregated information sources such as camera, location, survey, email notifications, or calendar integration in one place and making the data accessible. All this makes it possible for users to make better and faster decisions from better information access which empowers users and leads to long-term employee satisfaction.
According to Forrester’s Total Economic Impact™ Study commissioned By Microsoft in March 2020, with the usage of Power Apps, the app development and costs are reduced by 74%, while the payback time is less than 6 months. Furthermore, ROI over three years is 188% together with the average improvement in line-of-business employee productivity of 3.2 hours per week. Quite the numbers, you must admit!
