Microsoft’s PowerApps and Flow development tools will be generally available on November 1. This is the same day that Dynamics 365 goes on the company’s price list.
PowerApps is for building web and mobile business applications without coding. Flow, Microsoft’s version of IFTTT (If This Then That), is its business-process automation tool.
The November 1 timing is not coincidental, as both PowerApps and Flow are set to be included with Dynamics 365, some pieces of which will be available for purchase starting November 1. The Common Data Model at the heart of Dynamics 365 initially was part of PowerApps.
Microsoft took the wraps off the PowerApps service (which was codenamed “Project Kratos)in November 2015. The goal of the PowerApps service/app was to allow business users to create apps without having to know how to write a single line of code.
