As part of the Microsoft Azure cloud business, PowerApps is a V1 product set to change the universe of apps. Marrying app creation for non-developers with the power of the cloud and SaaS, our public release has seen unprecedented levels of customer enthusiasm - analysts are already calling it the “next billion-dollar business”, and saying it is “the easiest way ever to create and share a mobile app”. Large international companies already call it “a game changer”, “an amazing product”, a product that “is the most impressive thing they have seen in a long time”. And this is just the beginning!

The PowerApps team is building a family of applications that aim to dramatically simplify the creation and consumption of visually stunning, behavior-rich apps for the cloud and any device. Apps created by this new product leverage the power of the Cloud data and Services to become truly “magical”. Imagine apps that leverage context, user information, sensors and device signals, image and video processing, social information. Imagine apps that can collaborate across multiple devices (tablets, phones) to act as a single multifaceted experience. Finally imagine exposing all these capabilities to empower non-programmers to build such apps and share them in a few seconds across devices and platforms.
