Abstract Have you been a user of SharePoint Designer? InfoPath? Access Services? How are you building business solutions today? Microsoft PowerApps is the successor to InfoPath and targets the business user and power user gaps left between SharePoints out of the box capabilities and custom development. SharePoint users need to understand how Microsoft PowerApps adds business value by extending SharePoint: from building mobile apps, to custom forms, to powerful business solutions.
