One of the most important from an ISV/Consultancy point of view is going to be monetisation. How can we monetise an investment in adding our ProDev skills to the Low Code world

Dona Sarkar— #POWERfulDevs Conf

Stress the extensibility of the low-code projects into things that can be super customized for the business with custom connectors into their specific data store AND extending their Power Apps with custom written APIs that you import into APIM.

Thanks Dona that makes perfect sense from consultancy POV. From the ISV point of view is there any way of getting paid for reusable components. Feel free to tell me this will be covered in a later session :-)

Per Mikkelsen

The monetization story for ISVs are currently focused on apps and not the components that make up the app. Most ISVs that publish apps on have prodev components as part of their lowcode based app.

Thanks Per. I'm hoping that may change in the future.

I love the term Fusion Devs, but do PowerApps only work in the enterprise or can I release a PowerApp that anyone can use?

donasarkar profile image
Dona Sarkar— #POWERfulDevs Conf

No, Power Apps are specifically for internal company usage--this is necessary for security and compliance and especially protecting your data. If you want something to be publicly available, try out Power Apps Portals or Power Virtual Agents. Both are available to the public.
