Beyond VS.Code and extensions Microsoft is working on a new development platform for NAV and the other Microsoft Business Applications: “PowerApps”.

PowerApps allows application developer to take data from a variety of sources and create apps that run on phones and tablets online and offline without requiring them to do any coding. Applications built with PowerApps, which can run on iOS, Android and the Web, can pull data from sources including Dynamics 365,Dropbox, OneDrive, Dynamics CRM and SharePoint Online.

The Common Data Service (CDS) is a secure business data platform built into PowerApps. It comes with hundreds of standard business entities already defined in the Common Data Model (CDM), which means that now all your apps can share the same definition of “customer,” “product,” “lead,” and more. The service also includes workflow automation with Microsoft Flow.

In this session we will show you how to build a PowerApp without coding and how to publish and use you apps on web/mobile. We will introduce you to the CDM and show you the main differences between the NAV table layout and CDM. We will show you how to query CDS to create integrations between PowerApps and other systems and how to build workflow automation with Microsoft Flow.
