1. PowerApps functionality comes with E1 over E3 License without adding extra costs
2. For Nintex you pay (at the beginning) for each workflow, so my intention would be, to do no workflows to prevent additional costs, but I want a platform with a fair price that allows me to create workflows without thinking about the price for each workflow and we use only some workflow and relative easy workflows and forms as a medium-sized company.
3. PowerApps provides a lot of functionality without needing to invest in premium features directly.

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.

PowerApps and Power Automate go together in the Power platform. They are made to work together to create a vast collection of connectors and out of the box pieces that come together to make a whole application. If you are unable to complete a task from within PowerApps, Power Automate is the best choice to look for that task.

I have extensive experience with another low code platform, K2 and it's SmartForms. SmartForms have their own challenges but allow the developer to extend the operation of a form as needed. In addition, their vNext version promises to greatly enhance the developer and designer's ability to customize the platform, while still enabling the citizen developer.

PowerApps has much power when talking about Office 365 and Azure integrations. Has low cost and it is easy to create/deploy applications. Bonita is open-source but it is necessary to have many technical skills to create applications and also to handle the infrastructure when installed in-house. Salesforce is an excellent platform, however it has a higher price for licensing.

I'm not sure if you can say D365 CRM is an alternative to PowerApps, because basically all the customization of using D365 CRM, or what used to be called XRM, is now called a model-driven PowerApp. Likewise, SharePoint has become intimately connected to canvas PowerApps. Both are just simple ways to start creating a PowerApp, and it doesn't take too much work to quickly get up to speed creating useful PowerApps for your company.

PowerApps is what the company has presented to us as our option. While Nintex is nice and relatively capable, it is always a +1 to the Microsoft platform and requires its own validation and integration. Nintex can also be feature limited in its online version depending on the license agreement, so future upgrades can jeopardize continuity. Google Forms is simple and easy to use, but rarely secure enough or "blessed" to be used in a regulated environment for anything other than garden variety collaboration needs that hold no confidential information or have a requirement of credential testing. Default SharePoint forms are always an option, but they can be a very large and unwieldy form for some contexts where only a few pieces of info are being collected per transactional moment.

It's by far the most superior simply because of its integration with what most companies already have in place Sharepoint, SQL, Azure. It's drag and drop functionality is top notch and the dream of creating mobile apps without having to duplicate the work is amazing as well. Integration alone is what makes PowerApps a no brainer.

Along with PowerApps we evaluated Smartsheet for use and we determined that PowerApps provides a great deal more functionality and flexibility. Especially when you consider it is nested in SparePoint and all the additional functionality that SharePoint provides. PowerApps also has the ability to integrate with PowerBi which provides you access to some superb reporting capability.

Although Zoho allowed for some unique customization abilities including html styling and simple scripting language. In the end it came down to the Office 365 and choice of many other connections that lead me to choose PowerApps.
