Microsoft AppSource

Microsoft AppSource is an app store for business applications such as Office 365, Dynamics 365, Power BI or separate Azure web apps.

AppSource makes it possible to add purpose driven extensions to Microsoft business software as simply as installing an app on a smartphone. AppSource combines a number of separate market places together.

The AppSource store is accessible either by going to the AppSource.com website for Azure cloud based offerings or direct from Office 365, Power Bi, dynamics 365, pressing get apps in menus. Users can search apps to try and use, rather than buying a whole suite of software. This allows small pieces of software to perform particular tasks to be chosen, tested and continued in use as a service should they fill the role. The parceled app style of software can help to avoid spending on unneeded functions as part of a suite.

Microsoft AppSource competes with the similar SalesForce offering of AppExchange. Microsoft currently does not boast as large a selection as Salesforce but the lower cost and greater integration, ease of use and installing help to increase attractiveness as the AppSource selection grows.
