In spring 2018, Microsoft announced a new release of Dynamics 365. This post presents the most important changes and the future of Dynamics 365 at a glance.

PowerApps is a tool to build a complete app from scratch – easily and fast. There are two kinds of PowerApps:
This is the PowerApp already known since a while. With canvas apps you can create no-code apps within minutes. Find more information here.
Microsoft describes the model-driven-app as follows: “Model-driven app design is a component-focused approach to app development.
