Power Apps is a high-productivity application development platform from Microsoft. The platform is used by Microsoft to build their own first-party applications Dynamics 365 Sales, Service, Field Service, Marketing, and Talent. This means these applications are built natively on the platform. Enterprise customers can also build their own custom line-of-business applications using the same technology. Individual users and teams within your organization can also build personal or team productivity applications with no-code or low-code.
