What is your experience regarding pricing and costs for Microsoft PowerApps?

Hi,

We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

The cost for licensing could be lower.

The pricing is excellent. It's not too expensive. However, once you get into adding non-internal users, the solution can get pricey. It's only reasonable if you are trying to create internal team-based apps.

You have to be careful with pricing. It might be too complicated to continuously monitor the business consumption and what to pay.

Licensing is on a monthly basis.

I'm not sure of the cost of the solution. That's not an aspect of the solution I handle.

The pricing is too expensive and the licensing system is complicated. There are many pages of instruction on how to do the calculations for the price.

I don't directly deal with the actual billing. Therefore, I don't know the exact cost or the licensing structure. That's an aspect of the solution someone else handles. That said, it's Microsoft, which tends to be a bit more expensive. It might now be the best option for smaller customers.

I don't have too much information on licensing It is likely per application we use, or per machine. I don't deal directly with billing and therefore don't have the exact pricing.

There are two licensing costs, one is pay-as-you-go, or you can develop it for one year.

We use the Office 365 package, and Microsoft PowerApps is a part of the package. We don't pay any separate price for this. There are no additional costs. We just pay for the Office 365 package.

The solution is subscription-based, however, I don't handle billing, and therefore don't have insights into the costs. We don't have any extras that we pay for. We just have a standard subscription package. I'd recommend the solution. Overall, I'd rate it eight out of ten. If the reporting and pricing were better, I'd rate it higher. I've definitely learned about the power of the cloud. Before everyone used to use the VPN connection to the head office. When we pushed into the cloud and everyone can just see everything and the system is very sound. It also allows our developers to see what they can change. It's been great.

I'm using a trial version right now. I'm still learning the system, so I haven't moved into a paid version yet. It's my understanding that the pricing isn't too bad. I've heard other people mention it's not as expensive as Azure in comparison with Linux. One or two licenses may not be too expensive, however, I don't know the exact pricing.

I was using a free version. The company has a subscription where you can use certain features for free, but there are features that require a premium subscription to use. I am not certain, but I suspect they would be expensive.

The solution is free if you have a Teams account, or Office 365. If you start to use any premium connectors that are not stored in a SharePoint list or on an Excel workbook, then it costs $4 per user per month. If you want unlimited, it's about $16 per month for unlimited apps and unlimited connectors. There might potentially be a few other extra fees, however, I'm not sure what they are. Microsoft is one of those organizations that manage to nickel and dime its customers on everything.

The setup costs depend on the organization (it's professional knowledge) and it's assets location once the basic data and application is in Azure the setup effort will be very cost effective. For organizational internal users the prices are fair. But for external users It's negotiation. The the long term is vague.

If I want to use Power Apps with Singalab, then I have to pay $10 per month. But if I want to have unlimited access to Power Apps that is $40 per month per user. Prices may have changed.

The pricing is pretty good. Right now, I'm paying for a two or three-month trial that is priced well. This trial period gives a company time to try an application, develop it, test it, and decide as to whether they will go ahead and pay for a modular plan. I find their pricing quite affordable.

I have no idea about licensing costs. I tried contacting Microsoft about this because the information isn't easily available and it was unclear where I could search for this. My guess is that the cost is dependent on the company and product needs. I tried to make a calculation and it looks like it's going to be much cheaper to purchase the product than if I were to hire an engineer, get him to develop an app, and have it maintained. This is a much more scalable and less expensive solution.
