Azure + Power Apps: Cloud-powered Low Code
The Power Apps suite is organized into a suite that enables end to end publishing of easily created intelligent apps. Power Automate is the primary process automation tool, with other major service categories including Power Apps and Azure – The Power Apps on Azure feature and how it enables Low Code Application Development on Azure.
This defines where it intersects with Cloud hosting. The key feature of the Microsoft approach is the end-to-end suite of offerings, enabling every step from creating the code to finally deploying and hosting it. Our course covers the full suite across these major categories of developer adoption and Cloud services integration, with a core goal of defining how to implement Low Code Application Development on Azure.
The Power Apps team introduce why it works better with Azure, detailed in their product guide for Power Apps on Azure. This enables a principle capability of Low Code Application Development on Azure.
The keynote strength of the Microsoft approach is the end-to-end integrated suite, catering for writing code right through deploying and hosting it. Power Apps Low Code and RPA is the central pivot point to this value, as it bridges the worlds of developer and operations via easily-created automations.
This relationship between the two enables app development by creating custom, reusable components with Visual Studio Code that can feature the use of Azure cloud services, via Azure Functions and Azure API Management.
Azure has a number of integration services, such as Power Automate and Functions. For example this tutorial explains an Azure function app can be created using .Net core with classes and how these could be called using the Logic Apps.
