Microsoft Dynamics 365

Model-driven App_

What is a Model-driven App?

A model-driven app is a software application where the core functionality and behaviour are defined by a central data model. This model acts as a blueprint, outlining the data structures, relationships, and business rules that govern the app’s operations.

Unlike code-driven apps, where programmers manually write instructions, model-driven apps take a more declarative approach. Instead of focusing on the “how” of achieving tasks, they define the “what” – the data elements, interactions, and desired outcomes. This enables rapid development and customisation, particularly for applications dealing with complex data-driven workflows.


Model-driven Apps in the Microsoft Ecosystem: Power and Flexibility

Within the Microsoft universe, model-driven apps play a key role in several products and services, most notably Dynamics 365. This cloud-based business platform offers a diverse range of pre-built applications, like customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource planning (ERP), all built using a model-driven approach.

Within Dynamics 365, you can also leverage tools like Power Apps to craft your own bespoke model-driven apps. This empowers businesses to tailor applications to their specific needs, integrating seamlessly with existing Dynamics 365 solutions and other Microsoft services.

Key benefits of model-driven apps in Microsoft products_

  • Rapid development: Pre-built components and low-code tools accelerate app creation.
  • Data-centric focus: Ensures applications align with your data structures and business processes.
  • Scalability and security: Inherits the robust infrastructure and security features of the Microsoft cloud.
  • Integration: Seamlessly connects with other Dynamics 365 applications and Microsoft services.
