Low Code Development Platform

Any business requirements are suitable for Low Code Development Platform, and you get a faster MVP development done and still have some time to improve the User Interface.If the project requires too many complex screens and complex queries just may need some integration or take into consideration a non-Low Code Development Platform, but everything is possible with Low Code Development Platform if you have the right support from the vendor or at least an experienced senior developer in the technology being used.

PowerApps

PowerApps does a great job of bridging the gap for mobile form entry where needed. We don't have a ton of mobile use cases, but that's because we haven't had a very active online tool kit until the deployment of O365. With most tools behind a firewall, any opportunity to work in business applications has been through VPN and that usually requires a PC/Mac. Now that we're able to access the system through a credentialed entry point in O365, we have the opportunity to think about what our mobile environment could look like. That's where PowerApps comes into our portfolio.

Cons

Low Code Development Platform

  • The source code behind almost all low code platform needs to continue an improvement process to speed up the PaaS (Platform as a Service).

PowerApps

  • I feel that although it is possible to adapt the tablet view to desktop it can be cumbersome and the screen ratio is not right. There should be an option for making a desktop or browser based application specifically; or at least more screen ratio choices.
  • "PowerApps Desktop" is only available via windows store; for some enterprise users(specifically LTSB users) that makes it unavailable as windows store cannot be used with this version of Windows. A stand alone download or an explanation in the documentation would be nice to have.
  • I have spent a ton of time changing the formating over to the standard that I am using throughout the application on each data card or places where copy paste isn't an option. A format painter or a place to provide typical formating options such as font type and color would be a HUGE time saver for those of us trying to brand our applications.

There is still complexity in creating PowerApps, but you can't underestimate the power of the PowerApp, so naturally creating one could get complex. But the usage of the app should be straightforward, even if it relies heavily on the UX from the application designer. Overall, very user-friendly, does not require code, and relatively painlessly taps into business-critical information without requiring any data copying.

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.
