Microsoft PowerApps vs CloudWright: What are the differences?
Developers describe Microsoft PowerApps as "Build professional-grade apps the easy way". It is a suite of apps, services, connectors and data platform that provides a rapid application development environment to build custom apps for your business needs. Using Power Apps, you can quickly build custom business apps that connect to your business data stored either in the underlying data platform (Common Data Service) or in various online and on-premises data sources (SharePoint, Excel, Office 365, Dynamics 365, SQL Server, and so on). On the other hand, CloudWright is detailed as "Build apps in your own cloud". It is a platform which empowers anyone who can write Python to build reliable, powerful internal tools. By letting developers combine reusable connections to databases, services, and APIs, and by handling common last-mile barriers to internal application development — passwords, deployment, scaling, and monitoring — it lets either technical or semi-technical users translate ideas into tools fast and more reliably.
Microsoft PowerApps and CloudWright belong to "Low Code Platforms" category of the tech stack.
Some of the features offered by Microsoft PowerApps are:
- Provide professional developers the tools to seamlessly extend app capabilities with Azure Functions and custom connectors to proprietary or on-premises systems
- Give everyone the power to build the apps they need with advanced functionality previously only available to professional developers—including pre-built AI components
- Empower your team to start building and launching apps right away using pre-built templates, drag-and-drop simplicity, and quick deployment—then roll out continuous improvements as needed
On the other hand, CloudWright provides the following key features:
- Custom workflows
- File automation
- Report generation
