Definition of Power Users
Power users are persons who reach the limits of the systems they use. As a rule, they have above-average knowledge of the systems they operate or implement. They explore the full potential of the systems.
SaaS products are often developed with a focus on simple applications. Many sophisticated features are left out in favor of simplifying the system. In this way, the providers increase the reach of potential customers while reducing development costs.
How Power Users and APIs are related
When a power user reaches the limits of a system and needs more functionality, they often use the API – as far as available. Further services and also special applications can be connected to the system via the API.
We classify the integrators of our platform components as power users. Both components, i.e. the HubEngine and the DataEngine, are used for the integration of systems and especially the DataEngine as ETL layer. They are therefore aimed at people who want to combine or to extend existing systems – by definition: power users.
