Are PowerApps the next Big thing for Microsoft?.

BARCELONA, Spain, Nov. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Monday, at its annual Convergence EMEA conference, Microsoft Corp. introduced new innovations that will enable companies to succeed in a mobile-first, cloud-first world.Microsoft today launched PowerApps, a new Office-like service that makes it easy for virtually any employee in a company to build basic mobile and web-based business apps — and for IT departments to enable them to do so.

It was reported today that Microsoft’s next billion dollar business could be launching today which is being seen as a huge positive by investors on the street. In a new commissioned study of European business and IT leaders, Forrester Consulting found widespread recognition of the importance of digital transformation in their organizations, and the need to dramatically reshape their business around customer outcomes and desires. As Microsoft’s corporate vice president for its application platform Bill Staples noted during a press briefing earlier this month, the company believes that while employees are now more mobile than ever, a lot of work is still bound to the desktop.

Recognizing that information is often scattered across an organization without an effective means of efficiently accessing it when needed on modern mobile devices, PowerApps empowers users with solutions that can help them build useful tools to find it. The innovations Microsoft announced Monday are aimed at helping businesses achieve this by igniting entirely new ways to collaborate and intelligently engage with customers. The company said that it is chartered to build rich and engaging mobile apps that pull together information from across enterprise and consumer sources and make it easier for Information Workers.

These new services represent the single most significant release of new enterprise value in the history of Office 365: A complete meeting and voice solution. At the same time, it’s impossible for IT to write new business apps for every scenario and, as Staples stressed, there simply aren’t enough developers to go around to write those apps anyway. With Skype Meeting Broadcast, Public Switch Telephone Network (PSTN) Conferencing, PSTN Calling and Cloud Private Branch Exchange, Office 365 customers now have one platform for calling, conferencing, video and sharing integrated with the Office applications they use every day. The built-in connectors support popular cloud services such as Dynamics CRM, Salesforce, Dropbox, OneDrive and on-premises systems including SharePoint, SQL Server, Oracle databases, SAP and more.

Enterprise: adds all the features of Standard with dedicated infrastructure (Azure App Service Environment), App governance, secure access control and usage reporting, API management. Delve Analytics empowers individuals by providing rich, interactive dashboards that surface insights into how they spend their time and who they spend it with, so they can focus on the tasks and people that matter most. When looking at the charts for Microsoft Corporation, the stock has been trending higher since the beginning of the year and has outperformed the broader indices. Customer Lockbox offers customers full control over access to their data in Office 365 by giving them ultimate approval rights in the rare instances when a Microsoft engineer must request access to the service.

With this, a team could write a custom app to track its recruiting efforts or a sales team could wire up data from Salesforce and other tools to track its efforts. It fits well alongside the Microsoft Azure infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) that are geared toward more technically inclined people. Office 365 Advanced eDiscovery brings machine learning and text analytics that reduce the costs and risks inherent in managing large quantities of data for e-discovery.

The momentum indicators for the stock have given a sell signal which is a cause for concern for traders and investors and indicate towards the shift of momentum towards the sell side. It will give us the ability to consolidate on a single platform for all our productivity and voice services, reducing our costs and complexity while giving employees the flexibility they need to get their jobs done no matter where they are or what device they are using.” Beginning today, Dynamics CRM 2016 will be generally available for online and on-premises deployments. Sharing an application with a colleague is as simple as sharing a file with something like the OneDrive cloud sync and share service — you just type in an email address, as Staples wrote in a blog post on PowerApps. Microsoft Corporation is a public multinational corporation headquartered in Redmond, Washington, USA that develops, manufactures, licenses, and supports a wide range of products and services predominantly related to computing through … read more » A spokesperson told me the company plans to charge on a per-seat basis, though, so businesses will have a predictable bill that scales with growth and won’t have to worry “about purchasing multiple individual meters to offer the same level of service.” Here is what the pricing tiers for PowerApps will look like.

This version of Dynamics CRM will preview industry-leading, full offline capabilities for mobile professionals on phones and tablets and across all major platforms. Available in preview, PowerApps helps businesses create employee-facing apps of all kinds, from the simplest app — like an employee survey — to long-lived, mission-critical apps that connect to line-of-business systems and cloud services and run on any device.

Expose data and services to empower employees to innovate on their own, and continue to create native Web and mobile apps and APIs with Azure App Service. These tools work in concert with enterprise-grade services for professional developers and IT professionals, so everyone can work together to unlock new business agility. Microsoft (Nasdaq “MSFT” @microsoft) is the leading platform and productivity company for the mobile-first, cloud-first world, and its mission is to empower every person and every organization on the planet to achieve more.
