Form Recognition pricing

I'm exploring using the Form recognition AI component to search thru Invoices, snag some data and create a spreadsheet to import into our accounting system.
We only need to be able to do this with a handful of different invoices, so the training will not be that big an issue. What I'm having trouble with is determining the cost. I have a price for the AI component, the PowerApps licence, but I am unsure about the storage. Since it uses Azure I thought I would need to pay for Azure storage, but I don't see that mentioned anywhere. Does it use CDS for storage?
Would there be other hidden cost?

Hi @BrianS,

 

Thanks for the question.

 

The documents that you use to train your AI Builder Form Processing model are stored in CDS.

 

Then when you run the model we don't store the documents you process, so there's no storage cost for those.

 

The AI Builder calculator can help you estimate the amount of AI Builder add-ons you will need: https://powerapps.microsoft.com/en-us/ai-builder-calculator/

 

Hope this clarifies. Let us know if you have additional questions.

Just to clarify - 

The data storage would then be handled by the PowerApp and I could save it any where - say SharePoint.

And the use of CDS would be covered in the $40/month PowerApss licence - correct?

Thanks for the quick answer!

Hi @BrianS,

 

Yes, when you use the model in Power Apps or Power Automate you can then decide where to store the documents that you process. SharePoint can indeed be one option. 

 

And yes, the $40/month per user plan Power Apps license will give 2 GB file capacity where the documents you use to train the model will be stored.
