Building business applications is never easy. There are always conflicting priorities between IT and business and most apps don’t merit the time and cost of traditional software development. PowerApps is an enterprise application platform for delivering line-of-business apps without writing code. It fundamentally transforms and accelerates how organizations provide employees seamless access to business apps and information. PowerApps now features built-in support for the common data model, enhanced connectivity, support for more devices and integrations with other Microsoft business offerings.

Deck: BRK3315 - Dive into the Microsoft Common Data Model

Speaker(s)

The Microsoft Common Data model (CDM) is the Azure-based storage mechanism for the Microsoft business application platform. The most intuitive use case for the CDM is to provide an easy to use relational database for PowerApps. App Creators can use the CDM to model their data and easily share apps created on that data. CDM aims to provide much more than storage, it also provides definitions for common business entities as well as integration capabilities for importing data from multiple sources. With data sourced across the enterprise, businesses can drive insights and actions using PowerApps.
