Replicate / Export Dynamics 365 (CDS) data – different options

The most common use case to export Dynamics 365 or Common Data Service data to an external database/datastore is to have more control over the data (without going through API route) with the ability to run analytics such as Power BI Reporting, Machine Learning, Data Warehousing, Integration, etc.

For analytics, we can also use our Microsoft Dynamics 365 AI apps that use Dynamics 365 data as a source

Below listing down few of the options –

Data Export Service – Configuration

It is a free Add on-service provided by Microsoft for exporting Dynamics 365 or CDS Data to Microsoft Azure SQL Database or Microsoft Azure SQL Server on Microsoft Azure Virtual Machine.

Microsoft recommends Azure SQL Database Premium P1 or a better plan for Data Export Service

Notes on Data Export Service – 

Export to Data Lake Service – Configuration

The service enables continuous replication of CDS Data to Azure Data Lake Gen 2.
