Microsoft Power Pages and Microsoft Power Apps Portals - A Comparison

The Microsoft Power Apps and Microsoft Power Pages are an application development platform that is part of the broader Microsoft Power Platform, whose capabilities are built on and utilize Azure cloud services.

Microsoft Power Pages is a secure, enterprise-grade, low-code software as a service (SaaS) platform for creating, hosting and administering modern external-facing business websites. Whether you’re a low-code maker or a professional developer, Power Pages enables you to rapidly design, configure, and publish websites that seamlessly work across web browsers and devices. Microsoft Power Pages provides you with rich, customizable templates, a fluid visual experience through a reimagined design studio, and a new, integrated learning hub to quickly build sites that suit your unique business needs.

Microsoft Power Pages is an evolution of Microsoft Power Apps portals. It’s built on the Power Apps portals platform used by thousands of customers today. It combines this platform with new no-code/low-code capabilities and experiences to empower more people to create and deliver business-centric, data-powered, modern, and secure websites. Microsoft Power Pages is a superset of Power Apps portals. Current customers of Power Apps portals don’t need to upgrade or migrate their running portals. Customers and partners who are building solutions on top of Microsoft Power Apps portals shouldn’t stop or cancel their projects. Along with the extensible data model and pro developer customization experiences of Microsoft Power Apps portals, Microsoft Power Pages adds new low-code experiences and out-of-the-box solution templates. Both works on the same model below as far the business data is concerned.

Moreover, Microsoft Power Apps allow users to create external-facing websites that allow the users outside their organizations to sign in with a wide variety of identities, create and view data in Microsoft Dataverse, or even browse content anonymously. The full capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Portals, previously offered only as an add-on to customer engagement apps (Microsoft Dynamics 365 Sales, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Service, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Field Service, Microsoft Dynamics 365 Marketing, and Microsoft Dynamics 365 Project Service Automation), are now available standalone in Microsoft Power Apps. These capabilities feature a revamped end-to-end experience for makers to quickly create a website and customize it with pages, layout, and content.
