Say Hello to Microsoft DataFlex

Hi Folks,

Here we go again with a rebranding around CDS which is now known as DataFlex, yes that's right, CDS is now DataFlex - a new low-code data platform for Microsoft Teams. You can create and run thousands of applications, flows, and intelligent agents with a smart, secure, and now with scalable low-code data platform.

What it offers:

DataFlex Pro: Its more or less the same as what we have in CDS today including same licensing i.e.

            $10/app/User/Month

            $40/User/Month – unlimited apps

 

DataFlex: Its basically a new simplified version or I would say lightweight of CDS for building an app on top of Microsoft Team. It includes as free with your Microsoft office 365 license which includes Teams. 

Below is a screenshot for reference, hoe easily you can create different tables and columns to meet business requirements.

 

 

Why DataFlex?

 

i.                    Provides the ability to use model-driven power apps in Teams with no extra licensing cost.

ii.                 Currently, to build an app for Team you need to use the SharePoint list to save some licensing cost that too not a relation Database and without scalability. While DataFlex provides a free relation DB to build a team-based PowerApps

iii.               A low code tool that enables you to build Team apps and bots similar to native apps.

iv.               Streamline identity protection and secure guest access with identity management and multifactor authentication.

v.                  Reduce data management stress and let Dataflex Pro determine your storage needs for relational data, file and blob storage, logs, and search indexing.

vi.               Quickly develop applications your way—either with custom code or using no or low-code—across Azure, Office 365, and Dynamics 365, and with more than 300 connectors.

vii.            Create a solid data foundation using automatic duplication detection and more than 300 data transformations that clean and reshape data

now you have to install this KB on your machine. On successful deployment, you should be able to use this data entity to release product import.
