Power Apps: How To – License per App 

Introduction

          Optimizing Power Apps licensing is crucial for maximizing its potential and value within your organization. This article delves into the “License per App” model, exploring its benefits and practical implementation considerations.  

Understanding Power Apps

          Power Apps empowers citizen developers to create custom, low-code applications that address specific business needs. Its intuitive drag-and-drop interface simplifies the development process, enabling rapid application creation and workflow automation. 

Navigating Licensing Options

           Microsoft offers two primary licensing models for Power Apps: 

           • Power Apps per user: This traditional approach assigns individual licenses, granting unrestricted access to all Power Apps within the designated environment. This model suits organizations with pervasive Power Apps usage across diverse teams.
 

           • Power Apps per app: This innovative model focuses on the app itself, not the user. Each app serves as a distinct access point, ideal for scenarios with many users requiring access to only a specific set of Power Apps. 

 

           Unlocking the Power of “License per App”: 

           • Cost Optimization: This model is highly cost-effective for organizations with a limited number of Power Apps serving a large user base. You pay only for the apps used, not for every individual who accesses them.
 

           • Granular Access Control: With per-app licensing, access can be precisely targeted to specific groups and users, enhancing security and ensuring appropriate privilege levels.
 

           • Simplified Administration: Managing individual user licenses for Power Apps access becomes a thing of the past. This streamlining simplifies administration and reduces overhead.
