Summary and resources


Microsoft Power Apps allows users of any technical level to improve business processes by building applications to fit the needs of your business. Apps are built using your existing skills and knowledge and without writing traditional managed code. These apps offer the ability to create highly flexible solutions built for different devices and to consume data from a multitude of sources. With Power Apps, users can create two primary types of applications, canvas and model driven. Canvas applications provide the ability to control the entire experience and connect to any data source. Model-driven apps are built on top of Microsoft Dataverse and provide the ability to define the forms and views that will be presented in the application.
