I currently have simple product data (details, pricing, shipping info etc) within Sharepoint lists, am I better off storing this data in Common Data Service to replace Sharepoint lists to better interact with Power Platform? If I did this are there any drawbacks to moving away from Sharepoint lists?

An extension to this question is, should I just go further and store this data in a Azure SQL database if in time I want to have it linked into Quickbooks, Salesforce etc?

 

Thanks and sorry if it's a simple question!

@dschorah In given scenario, you can continue using Sharepoint for storing your data which will allow you to integrate with Quickbook, Salesforce etc. if you want to separate data layer and presentation layer then CDS could be good way forward. 

Great, thank you for taking the time to reply
