The client is having old tenant with some of PowerApps applications associated with SharePoint data source containing number of lists.

The SharePoint list and libraries contain 500 GB of data in old tenant.

Client wants to migrate all SharePoint data that is containing lists and libraries to new tenant and need to do configure SharePoint environment on new tenant.

Client plans to demote the old environment and use new environment to Manage the PowerApps, Licenses and Data sources.

There was need to modify or improvement existing PowerApps have the following drawbacks.

There was no environment strategy has been followed and it make the apps vulnerable to security, data loss and accessibility.

There was a chance of performance improvement in apps as they have not followed the Microsoft recommended way of design. Like use of solutions, containers, components, local & global variables, and minimal API calls to the database/SharePoint.

If there was any change/ enhancement in existing apps then it’s difficult to follow the Agile methodology.

As there were no testing/UAT environments, CI/CD pipelines and deployment automation.

There were no flows involved and all the data creation and update are happening through PowerApps with all the app users having at least contribute access to the data sources (SP list/ libraries) that is not recommended as people can access/update/delete the database. (SOX Non-Compliance)
