This post demonstrates how to automate importing account and contact data from Dynamics CRM or Salesforce into Microsoft's Common Data Service.
InaPlex is all about data and integration, so with the announcement of general availability of Microsoft PowerApps and Microsoft Flow I thought it would be useful to have a close look at the underlying database and integration capabilities of these new systems.
In this, the first of two posts on the topic, I summarize the native integration capabilities and limitations of PowerApps and Flow. The second posts will show you how to do a bulk import of data from Dynamics CRM or Salesforce into the Common Data Service. Free maps for the process will also be provided.
Between now and the end of 2016, InaPlex will provide a FREE Inaport license for customers wanting to use these maps for bulk import into the Common Data Service. Please contact InaPlex for your free license.
