10:15 – Introduction to the Common Data Model 
Presented by  Miguel Llopis, Microsoft Principle Program Manager

The Common Data Model (CDM) is an open-sourced definition of standard entities that represent commonly used concepts and activities across a variety of business and application domains. It provides unified data & semantics over a variety of entities spanning multiple industries including Sales, Service, etc. Data loaded into the common model can benefit from applications built on top of the platform without additional customization, including out of box insights and intelligent action. If needed, the CDM can be extended by partners and customers, ensuring custom entities and concepts can live and benefit alongside the standard schema. This session will provide an introduction to the Common Data Model and its benefits, as well as describe the value to partners and customers alike.

Presented by  Miguel Llopis, Microsoft Principle Program Manager

The Common Data Service is the Microsoft Azure–based business application platform that enables users to easily build and extend applications with their business data (via CDS for Apps) and to easily drive business analytics across data from many apps and sources (via CDS for Analytics).

Come to this session to learn how business users and IT admins can leverage Data Integration capabilities to seamlessly bring data into the Common Data Service from a wide range of on-prem and cloud data sources, including Dynamics 365 (Sales, Finance, Operations, etc.), Azure services,  3rd party online services, relational databases, files and more.
