From breaking down silos between business processes and apps, to driving intelligent decisions that automate processes from end-to-end, Dynamics 365 is transforming the way organizations conduct business. So how does Dynamics 365 achieve this? Dynamics 365 is primarily built on three strong pillars: PowerApps, Flow, and the Common Data Model that make running business and driving transformation a breeze.
Imagine if you could create apps and workflows with little or no coding? The underlying Common Data Model in PowerApps unifies and manages data entities from Dynamics 365, letting you quickly build web and mobile apps using a simple drag and drop functionality. With PowerApps, you can:

The launch of as a one-stop solution for organizations worldwide is not to disrupt existing product roadmaps, but to improve operational and productivity app development on Azure as a With PowerApps, Power Automate (MS Flow), CDM, and Dynamics 365 expected to move forward in a unified manner, there’s a lot you can achieve: create apps of your choice, share PowerApps like documents, leverage advanced functionality like AI Builder, and build workflows from pre-configured templates or from scratch.
You can also boost productivity by creating secure and intelligent workflows with no-code experience, enable seamless integration by reusing prebuilt connectors, and generate data models that source and sync data from multiple applications.
