Getting started on low-code app building

30 Aug 2018

With the proliferation of the use of mobile devices in organisations comes the increase in the number of apps organisations need.

The great thing about them is that with fourth generation platforms and cloud computing, employees no longer need an extensive formal programming background to build these apps.

One of the platforms that enable this is Microsoft PowerApps.

Microsoft PowerApps is a business application platform that allows organisations to create and share apps across their organisation.

PowerApps lets employees without extensive technical knowledge build apps quickly with a point-and-click approach to app design, giving rise to the citizen developer.

Even so, figuring out where to begin with unlocking the potential apps could have to help your organisation can be tricky.

In these cases, it’s useful to enlist the services of a consultant who knows the common pitfalls companies run into and how to overcome them, such as Mobile Mentor.

One of the challenges Mobile Mentor can help companies address is around who to hire to build with PowerApps, and whether a developer’s expertise is required.

How do you spot the right people? How much training will they need? How do you get them started?

Mobile Mentor has answered these questions with an informative blog post that’s a must-read for anyone looking into building their own in-house apps.
