Licensing scenario/qualification

Hi there;

I know there are several licensing on here, but I'm looking for some clarification especially with regards to the Oct 2019 changes.  We have an application scenario that would require a PowerApp built for approximately 250 users in our organization.  These users would need access to on-prem Sql Server data.  Reading the licensing requirements (I'm just coming back to this after a preliminary investigation over a year ago), it seems I need to license these users with either the $10/user/app/month or $40 /user/month plans...is that right?  There's no way to leverage on-prem data with my existing O365 E3 licenses any longer?

 

Thanks in advance,

J

That is correct, but that didn't change on October 1.  That changed back in February when the On-premises gateway became premium.  At the time existing users were grandfathered in but that expires at the end of this year.  So yes, for that scenario you would need either per app licenses for each user for the one app or per user licenses for as many apps as you want.

Correct.  You have the proper understanding of the costs to use SQL.  Additionally, you can still use Excel or the Common Data Service (if you have this licensed) as datasources at no additional cost per user per app.

Thanks, I appreciate the clarification.  I was afraid that was the answer -- for us, those two changes basically put PowerApps out of the value proposition for our org, at the moment at least.  I had high hopes for this platform (we'd been using Platform by Telerik previously to check some of the same boxes), but I just don't see the value for us at those licensing rates -- from doing some reading, I don't think I'm alone.

 

Again, thanks as always to this community for providing quick, quality answers!
