From start-ups to enterprises, thousands of organizations around the world are using Microsoft Power Apps to build professional, custom apps to solve their challenges.

With this growth, here are the top 10 innovation areas to watch:

  1. #LessCodeMorePower
    No matter who you are, Power Apps is disrupting business software development. Millions of new citizen developers are learning to create apps and professionals are doing more while focusing on the code that matters.
  2. Modern intranet: Teams + SharePoint + Power Platform
    Power Apps is built into the productivity experiences of Microsoft 365 as a deeply integrated feature of services, like SharePoint and Teams. Easily discover and start learning how to create apps.
  3. Uncommon power in the Common Data Service
    The Common Data Service is a platform that sits under our most sophisticated Microsoft business applications, powering billions of dollars of global business every year.
  4. Bring your best cloud with “no limits” extensibility
    Beyond Teams, SharePoint, and the Common Data Service, hundreds of data sources and online services are connected to Power Apps in a few clicks. Anything that isn’t already built-in can be easily connected by building custom connectors.
  5. Now, for everyone to use
    Power Apps used to be for internal apps to be shared with co-workers, but now it has expanded so you can share information and access data via portals and guests can have access as well.

    The Power Platform is built to deeply integrate across Apps, Automation, Business Intelligence, and Power Virtual Agents.
  7. The future is componentized
    New capabilities can be easily added to existing apps through the components. Components are like reusable building blocks that makers can use quickly to assemble and build powerful apps.
  8. Full stack low code: the new quality assurance
    Power Apps is more than low-code UX—it also has high productivity data modelling, data integration, security, lifecycle management, and now professional-grade quality assurance tools.
  9. Think in thousand app scale
    Organizations are innovating at the scale of hundreds or even thousands of Power Apps used in production. In the process, they’re forging new partnerships between IT leaders, coders, and
    citizen developers.
  10. You are not alone
    The real power of the platform isn’t in technology at all – it’s the global community that has rallied together to forge a new way to innovate.
