As a ‘state of the art’ Mobile App developer in New Jersey, we have to keep up with the ever-changing space of technology paradigm shift in a continuous mode. We have been working with numerous clients from various industries to shape their business needs successfully on both web and mobile platform. While doing so; like any other technology development company, we too adopted all accessible fast changing deployment environments – be it iOS or Android native deployments or cross-platform technology like ‘PhoneGap’ or ‘Xamarin’. However, each of them has their own limitations in terms of infrastructural cost, resource availability, delivery time or adoptability.

But then suddenly the ‘WoW’ effect comes with Microsoft PowerApps.

So, what is this PowerApps in totality?

It’s an amazing and incredible tool to deploy business applications triggered at any level with the lowest possible deployment time.

Can you think about a scenario where you could actually bring down the cost of production to 1/10th of the present mainstream development cost? How cool would that be? Or perhaps set-up an enterprise Mobile App to increase organizational productivity without even experiencing the hassle of going through App Store delay. Sounds encouraging. Isn’t it?

While working on a PowerApps project for a food processing unit recently, we came across these 5 reasons why Enterprises should consider exploring PowerApps:

1.    Unavailability of skilled manpower: With the increased demand for enterprise mobility wherein most of the organizations are fast adopting App based production units; availability of skilled mobile developers will be at stake largely. The demand for mobile development services will increase multi-fold in 2017 as Gartner (American research and advisory firm) predicts. In such a scenario, an organization needs to adopt lesser deployment time-consuming solutions.

2.    Mobile first, Cloud first workforce: Individual resources are cloud application compatible these days. However, enterprise mobility and business apps are still little skeptical over security issues or scalability issues. Microsoft PowerApps bridges the gap. It could take a business app which is not mobile optimized and needs a computer installation to your mobile device with easy deployment and data access through a cloud service.

3.    More agility over technology implementations and sharing: To stay ahead in the competition, it’s essential for each enterprise to execute their business decisions fast. However, the mobile app distribution system is still controlled via app stores. The result is an uncanny delay for employees to get the app. PowerApps bridges this gap too.

4.    Data source accretion: An enterprise has several data sources. The effective and decision making data sources are aggregating from many accumulated platforms like Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics, Sharepoint, SQL server or even Excel. Data are generated on premises or beyond the firewall. Could you imagine how difficult it could be to manage all sources from your very own native mobile app while accumulating related data? The solution is PowerApps.

5.    Cost is the bottom-line: So obviously organizations are aware about native development costs. Or cost of distributing/publishing an app. Or cost of development that sometime goes beyond deadline. And cost of so many other attributes that are correlated with any mobile app development services. Nevertheless, the complexity of native development increases the cost for any organizational IT landscape. PowerApps with its built-in capability of fastest deployment, multi data sources, connectivity and easy-to-maintain characteristics can reduce the overall cost to a significant level.

Think increased productivity – Think Microsoft PowerApps

To conclude, we could easily say that Microsoft has come up with power packed productivity tool that is way too sophisticated and easy to adopt. For New Jersey Web Developers like us; it is our job to educate our clients’ and other enterprise workforce on the collective benefits that PowerApps could bring to them.
