What is Microsoft Power Apps? Quick Overview

Microsoft Power Apps in a computer screen

Power Apps is a data platform, as well as a suite of apps, services, and connectors, which provides an easy development environment to build custom apps for your business. By using Power Apps, you can quickly build custom business apps that connect to your data stored either in the underlying data platform or in various online and on-premises data sources (such as SharePoint, Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, SQL Server, and so on).

Power Apps Capabilities

Apps built using Power Apps provide rich business logic and workflow capabilities to transform your manual business operations into digital, automated processes. What’s more, apps built using Power Apps have a responsive design and can run seamlessly in browser and on mobile devices.

  1. Create solutions quickly with low-code tools accessible to everyone
  2. Connect professional developers who understand your technology to business experts who know your business issues with low-code tools
  3. Create custom apps or customize your existing business applications to meet the changing needs of your business

How to buy

You can purchase Power Apps through three main programs:

  • Microsoft Volume Licensing (VL)
  • Cloud Solution Provider program (CSP)
  • Web Direct (MOSP)


Power Apps Licensing

Standalone Power Apps licensing

Customers that need general purpose and full capabilities of the platform should license Power Apps on a standalone basis. Licensing is supported on both a “per user, per app” basis as well as a “per user” basis.

Power Apps per app plan

The Power Apps per app plan allows organizations to get started with the platform at a lower entry point. Customers on the per app plan typically start with 1-2 leading use case scenarios before adopting the platform more broadly. The Power Apps per app plan is an attractive licensing option for licensing end users that run only a few apps.
