Dive into the Microsoft Common Data Model
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, Power BI, and Microsoft Flow based solutions.
