Designed to easily create user specific experiences, Power Apps easily connects and automates critical user steps and processes without the cost and delays around custom one-off point solutions. Furthermore, with Power Apps, companies can continue to maximize the investment and data in existing systems while providing users a unified look, feel and single source of truth.

With the right application platform in place, businesses can easily build and deploy mobile apps and portals to iOS and Android devices across the enterprise.

The Platform of Choice

With Microsoft’s Power Apps, users now have the ability to quickly extend or replace legacy or homegrown applications that may be outdated or have limited functionality. As a Tier 3 Microsoft Power App Partner, MCA Connect will work with your organization to identify key process areas that will benefit from Power Apps. MCA Connect can co-develop and provide best practice insight to your team. Your business data is stored either in the underlying data platform (Common Data Service) or in various online and on-premises data sources (SharePoint, Excel, Office 365, Dynamics 365, SQL Server, and so on).

Quickly Build & Share Low-Code Apps

Not an app developer? No problem. Use the Power Apps point and click approach to design your app and Excel-like formulas to add functionality. You choose from a large selection of templates or start from a blank canvas, then easily connect your app to data and use Excel-like expressions to easily add logic. Publish your app to the web, iOS, Android, and Windows 10. It’s that easy!

Apps that are built by using Power Apps provide rich business logic and workflow capabilities to transform your manual business processes to digital, automated processes. Power Apps simplify the custom business app building experience by enabling users to build feature-rich apps without writing code.
Since data is at the core of every app, Microsoft made it easy to get your data into your apps with more than 300 connectors for many popular cloud services and even your on-premise data. Integrate data from Office 365, Slack, Excel, Salesforce, and many more systems.

Types of Power Apps

Canvas Apps

Design and build a business app from a canvas in Microsoft Power Apps without writing code. Design the app by dragging and dropping elements just as you would design a slide in PowerPoint. Create Excel-like expressions for specifying logic and working with data. Build apps that integrate data from a wide variety of sources. Share your app so users can run it in a browser or on a mobile device and embed your app so that users can run it in SharePoint, Power BI, or Teams.

Model-Driven Apps

Unlike canvas apps, where you build out an app screen-by-screen by adding logic and code as you go, model-driven apps can be created with a few simple steps. Model-driven apps use a component-focused approach to develop the app. When developing canvas apps, you have complete control over the appearance and behavior of your app, whereas with model-driven apps, the layout is mainly based on the components that you add to the app.
