"The product has good usability, in terms of low-code applications."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the Model-driven or Canvas application-making platforms. The power of the two gives us exactly what we are looking for."
"The solution is very good. It's very full. You can do almost anything."
"The solution is easy to use and map."
"The most valuable feature is that PowerApps can be used by most business users. It is not only for programmers."
"The cloud aspect has been great. We don't have to do a lot of research in order to begin integrations. It's so easy to integrate with other solutions."
"Of all of the solutions I evaluated, it was the easiest to use and deploy."
"Time to market is most valuable because you can make apps pretty fast. It also has pretty good integration."
"It has a well-designed architecture and is a simple 3rd party application."
"Oracle Application Express is easy to use, people don't have to be developers to use it."
"Oracle APEX improved our organization by making it possible for us to implement agile project development."
"This is a good application for quickly creating public applications."
"Quick development and the connection with the database are the most valuable and useful features. It is also very stable, scalable, and easy to set up. Its support is also good."
"I like the way that it automatically goes into the spreadsheets and the users can deal with it."
"The most valuable features are security, stability, and ease of implementation."
"One of the most valuable features is that we can develop everything locally and deploy it for different kinds of operators in different locations, so we can do our job in one piece. The benefit of that is that others can use these applications. They connect to the internet to do these kinds of applications based on the permissions for those users."
"PowerApps is still a bit new compared to a slightly more mature product such as OutSystems."
"Installation and integration could be improved."
"The availability of templates needs to be improved. I understand that the ecosystem around it is still developing, but we need more templates. I would like the entire ecosystem around it to improve. I would recommend adding AI components. Even though we can always connect to Azure for AI components, they should slowly start looking at adding some AI components to PowerApps so that out-of-the-box learning can be applied to process flows. Salesforce has the Einstein layer that works along with license platforms. PowerApps should also have something similar."
"Microsoft could streamline monitoring and management. In addition, it should be easier to put the solution in different environments. For example, you should be able to move from a dev environment to a production environment seamlessly."
"The price could be lower."
"Microsoft PowerApps is not intended for customizing what's generated in a major way."
"The connectors are the main components that reference the data sources, and these need to be improved."
"PowerApps can't do a lot of things that users need now. For example, it can't handle signatures."
"Visual Builder and APEX should meld in one product."
"There is a problem with security because the applications store passwords in the configuration files."
"Reporting needs to be accessed via third party tools."
"Better connection and integration with non-Oracle databases is needed."
"Connecting with Oracle and the relation with Oracle at the database as a procedure needs improvement."
"Connections to the application pages are not handled well and at times more than one user can be accessing an application with the same ID."
"Fixing bugs is difficult because of how the HTML code is generated. It is not always broadly compatible with browsers."
"Currently, APEX doesn't have a building workflow engine. I think that's the most important improvement that could be made at this point."
PowerApps enables a broad range of app scenarios to be created that infuse digital transformation into manual and outdated processes. Use both canvas and model-driven apps to build PowerApps that solve business problems for task and role-specific scenarios like inspections, field sales enablement, prospect to cash, and integrated marketing views.
Application Express enables users to design, develop and deploy beautiful, responsive, database-driven applications using only web browser. The Oracle Application Express engine runs directly in the Oracle Database and exploits the database's extraordinarily scalable and efficient architecture. Its framework provides numerous security features out-of-the-box and helps authenticate users using LDAP, Oracle Single-signon, Oracle Database credentials, or HTTP Header variable.
