The Microsoft Common Data Service lets you securely store and manage data that’s used by business applications.
Common Data Service includes a base set of standard entities that cover typical scenarios, but you can also create custom entities specific to your organisation and populate them with data using Power Query. App makers can then use Power Apps to build rich applications using this data.
