Create a model-driven application in Power Apps : Do you want to quickly build apps with little to no code? This module will focus on the building blocks of Common Data Service and model-driven apps. These key components will help you build quick business apps in your organization.
Whether you are building a canvas app or a model-driven app, Common Data Service is the ideal data source because it is the foundational data source of Power Platform. As a result, you will experience the most functionality, the deepest integrations, the most features, and the best ease-of-use of any available data sources. From simple web-based data design to robust, role-based security, Common Data Service is a straightforward platform that you can use to begin designing your data structures and helping to keep them safe. Then, with your data in place, you have rich integration capabilities from Power Apps and the rest of Power Platform. Additionally, by applying business rules, you can trust that your business integrity will be maintained no matter what tool you use to interact with the data.
Another benefit of using Common Data Service is that all of your data is stored in entities. An entity is a set of records that is used to store data, similar to how a table stores data within a database. Common Data Service includes a base set of standard entities that cover typical scenarios, but you can also create custom entities that are specific to your organization. Standard and custom entities within Common Data Service help provide a secure and cloud-based storage option for your data. Entities allow you to create a business-focused definition of your organization’s data for use within apps.
