Key questions that were answered
Q1. How are Power Apps licensed and do all users need license?
All internal users do need some type of license to access the information and leverage the application. External users (those not logged in) on the other hand do not. There are consumption-based SKU’s that are related to Power Apps and Power Automate. Feel free to contact the experts at Korcomptenz for more information. Ultimately, it’s all very affordable compared to traditional approaches.
Q2. I see Salesforce as an option for a connector, but we have been told that they no longer support integration with Dynamics 365. Any insight on that?
Salesforce itself will not support the connector. That is typical for their position on any third-party app installed on the Salesforce platform. Salesforce will support the software that they create. I would operate under the assumption that yes, a connection between Salesforce and the Power Platform is achievable. But like simply connecting Salesforce Pardot or Salesforce to the Marketing cloud or the Commerce Cloud there could be some intricacies involved and it is better to speak to a partner before you go too far down that line.
Q3. Can Power BI be used to collect analytics on platforms like a public website?
It can be done if you are using Google Analytics or another platform like Azure Synapse Analytics (To learn more about Azure Synapse check out our webinar), you can connect that data to Power BI and visualize it but there might be some complexities in ensuring that the Google Analytics is consumed properly.
Q4. What low-code skills are needed to complete a project?
Low code platforms function in ways that are similar to everyone’s experience in configuring a CRM or working as an experienced user in a content management system. There is a set of pre-built tools that you can literally drag and drop. So, for simple to moderately complex initiatives there is no need to code. Each use case will be different and there are extensions available for PowerApps just like for WordPress. But the actual decision your organization will need to make depends on the use case.
