Scalability and iterative development when building PowerApps

With a legacy in building complex applications, our team of developers understands best practices when it comes to deploying technology to automate, simplify, streamline business processes.

With the advancement of low-code solutions to build applications, we recognize that scalability and iterative development should be top of mind. 

Scalability

When building applications in PowerApps, we must consider scalability when designing and building apps. Our app must be able to handle large amounts of data, complex business logic, and a large number of users without compromising on performance or user experience.

To ensure scalability in PowerApps, we use a modular design approach, where different parts of the app are broken down into smaller, reusable components. This approach allows for easy maintenance and scalability as the app grows and evolves over time. 

In addition, we can use caching and data management techniques, such as delegating data retrieval to external sources, to reduce the load on the app and ultimately improve performance.

Iterative Development

An important consideration when building a new app is the development methodology. Since PowerApps is a flexible development platform, we would recommend an iterative development  approach. An iterative approach allows developers to build and test in small chunks of an application, rather than trying to build the entire application all at once. This approach allows for a more flexible and agile development process, where changes and improvements can be made quickly and easily.

In PowerApps, developers can focus on small, functional components that can be easily tested and refined. This allows for a more efficient and effective development process, as well as providing a more flexible app that can adapt and evolve over time.


Scalability and iterative development are critical when developing a new PowerApp. If you are new to PowerApps, or you are looking to leverage your investment in Microsoft 365 to automate and improve legacy business processes, contact us! We can help you in planning your PowerApps strategy or assist you in building that first PowerApp.
