How to extend the Power Apps Platform – when native components are not up for the challenge

If you are wondering how to take your IT to the next level or discussing business improvements, it’s barely impossible not to talk about the Power Apps Platform these days. It’s the best way to do more with less being a powerful set of tools that allows app makers to create low code solutions for their business needs. 


However, as powerful as it is, their native components may not be the solution for more complex challenges. In that case there are two ways to extend the Power Platform solutions: PCF and custom connectors. PCF allows developers and app makers to create code components that can be integrated into Power Apps, while custom connectors enable the use of existing APIs to easily use your systems data. Let’s dig into this. 

The Power Apps Platform  

Power Apps Platform includes a set of low code apps that empower users (app makers) to create solutions for improving their business’ needs. It has a native component that allows citizens to make remarkable things without any customization.  

When it is not possible to meet requirements with native components, one can move on to custom components to achieve the specific proposal of the project using Power Apps Component Framework (PCF) or custom connector. 


Power Apps Component Framework (PCF)

PCF empowers developers and app makers to build code components when out-of-the-box controls don’t fit the app maker’s needs, helping to create reusable components that can be integrated in Power Apps.
