    AWS Elastic Beanstalk

    AWS Elastic Beanstalk is well suited for [the] rapid development of applications that use standard compute platforms based on popular programming languages. So getting a Go, Python, Ruby, or Node.js app going in AWS Elastic Beanstalk will be easy. For non-standard applications, containers provide another option for using AWS Elastic Beanstalk. In either case, AWS Elastic Beanstalk is well suited for applications that are [self-contained]. AWS Elastic Beanstalk is also good for development or test environments that need a built-in deployment method.AWS Elastic Beanstalk is less appropriate for complex applications that rely on multiple AWS services. While deploying and running the base code might be easy to get going, it may be difficult to apply permissions and integrations with the other services.

    PowerApps

    Power-Apps can be used for virtually any type of situation. I've seen it used for an office reservation tool, especially during COVID, where that has been extremely useful. I currently use it a lot for various quality assurance forms for various teams who need different things to review for each team that calculates scores, as well as sends the information I need from various sources to SharePoint for analysis later. People can use it for mobile apps or canvas apps - I prefer canvas apps, but you can really create pretty much whatever you want and there are so many different tools and items to use for each app (scanner, signature insert, etc.). So really the sky is the limit.

    Pros

    AWS Elastic Beanstalk

    • AWS Elastic Beanstalk was easy to implement, we only had to insert the application code to have it up and running in a few minutes. This helps us to launch company campaigns for different areas such as marketing, commercial and human resources.
    • It has a fast learning curve, since the training material of the platform is public on the manufacturer's portal, furthermore it is easy to interact and intuitive for developers.
    • The productivity of the equipment is optimized since they are not worrying about preparing the platform or infrastructure, they only have to attend to what is required by the application and its operation and this maintenance.
    • The indicators and metrics that it has, ensure that the application cannot be saturated and have a performance problem, with AWS Elastic Beanstalk the application can scale resources when needed automatically.

    PowerApps

    • Power Apps has formats that are pre-built that don't require any coding which makes it easier to achieve your vision. This does become a challenge if your App needs don't fit into that format.
    • We deal with a ton of data so the fact that you can connect to any data source in addition to their pre-stablished data connections makes the process a breeze.
    • The online learning resources and tutorials are helpful as well for those who are tech savvy.

    Cons

    AWS Elastic Beanstalk

    • Limited to the frameworks and configurations that AWS supports. There is no native way to use Elastic Beanstalk to deploy a Go application behind Nginx, for example.
    • It's not always clear what's changed on an underlying system when AWS updates an EB stack; the new version is announced, but AWS does not say what specifically changed in the underlying configuration. This can have unintended consequences and result in additional work in order to figure out what changes were made.
    Joshua Dickson | TrustRadius Reviewer

    PowerApps

    • More complicated to understand in comparison with Nintex Forms.
    • Complicated to find errors.
    • Using PowerApps for SharePoint Forms is a bit complicated by setting up the start and load scenario with a lot of JavaScript.
    • Load values, change them by code, and save them back could be easier. Actually quite complicated to handle a lot of variables.

    As our technology grows, it makes more sense to individually provision each server rather than have it done via beanstalk. There are several reasons to do so, which I cannot explain without further diving into the architecture itself, but I can tell you this. With automation, you also loose the flexibility to morph the system for your specific needs. So if you expect that in future you need more customization to your deployment process, then there is a good chance that you might try to do things individually rather than use an automation like beanstalk.

    It is a great tool to manage your applications. You just need to write the codes, and after that with one click, your app will be online and accessible from the internet. That is a huge help for people who do not know about infrastructure or do not want to spend money on maintaining infrastructure.

    PowerApps is a great solution and I have spent the last year familiarizing myself with the platform and building custom applications to complete a whole range of tasks such as asset management, custom invoice generation, and item restriction tracking. We as a company have barely begun to scratch the surface of what can be achieved with PowerApps.

    As I described earlier it has been really cost effective and really easy for fellow developers who don't want to waste weeks and weeks into learning and manually deploying stuff which basically takes month to create and go live with the Minimal viable product (MVP). With AWS Beanstalk within a week a developer can go live with the Minimal viable product easily.

    The community forums are extremely responsive to questions asked, there is a good body of online documentation and many community posts to draw from. Although the platform has changed, which means some of the posts are out of date and the solutions provided aren't relevant. Of relevance, I read over 400 articles plus documentation to get this first app built in SharePoint, move it to SQL and make it work exactly the way it should.

    - Do as many experiments as you can before you commit on using beanstalk or other AWS features.- Keep future state in mind. Think through what comes next, and if that is technically possible to do so.- Always factor in cost in terms of scaling.- We learned a valuable lesson when we wanted to go multi-region, because then we realized many things needs to change in code. So if you plan on using this a lot, factor multiple regions.

    AWS Elastic Beanstalk

    AWS Elastic Beanstalk handles better in server autoscaling, load balancers,networking infrastructure for databases.It also helps in creating all of the architecture needed to run our apps and services.[AWS] Elastic Beanstalk also handles all of the provisioning, scaling, and implementation of the application stack unlike other competitors without a fuss.

    PowerApps

    Much cheaper, much more customizable, and easier to use. There is not much of a learning curve and the licensing cost is much cheaper. PowerApps does one thing very well, whereas other platforms are mediocre. There is much more customization possible for your in-house workflows that you can build yourself vs using NetSuite engineers to build it for you.

    Return on Investment

    AWS Elastic Beanstalk

    • Greatly reduced time in setting up and deploying test environments has saved a lot of hours and money.
    • Near-zero maintenance means that we don't spend any time tending to servers, the app containers just work.
    • The initial learning curve is a little steep to get services hosted in Elastic Beanstalk talking to external services like Redis, MongoDB, etc; but once one understands the pattern, development is a breeze.
    • The command line interface has enabled us to build many utility scripts that simplify our development workflow, thereby saving time.

    PowerApps

    • It has given us a focal point for development. We now have the possibility of connecting to mobile and the default SharePoint online interface isn't always easy to manipulate. PowerApps has given us an opportunity to improve our user experience.
    • An improved user experience has given us a better shot at compliance. When users don't fight the environment, they don't gravitate towards workarounds or non-compliance.
    • As lists and libraries change, the platform scales pretty well.
    • Having users with the capability to create their own forms and tools has dialed back the app dev need (there is a balance though) and distributed power to the process architects and people who actually need the solutions in the first place—much more efficient model of service delivery: self-service.
