Anyone familiar with this? Seems like a business intelligence tool to create apps that doesn't require much end user programming.

Looks like you need O365 to create any apps. But I'm assuming the target base is end users who currently use things like Crystal Reports or Access to pull data from different sources. The connectors that work with PowerApps cover things like SQL Server, SharePoint, Azure, CRM, Custom API's, etc., and you can either make the app pull the information and present it or do things like asset tracking where you can update and track information as well as present it.

We currently have users that use Crystal Reports and creating reports isn't always the easiest thing to do. I'd rather have an end user use a simple tool to help them get the data they need than to call me every day or every other day making modifications to a report that they can do themselves.
