    @Naveen Tariq A data entity is an abstraction from the physical implementation of database tables. For example, in normalized tables, a lot of the data for each customer might be stored in a customer table, and then the rest might be spread across a small set of related tables. In this case, the data entity for the customer concept appears as one de-normalized view, in which each row contains all the data from the customer table and its related tables. A data entity encapsulates a business concept into a format that makes development and integration easier. The abstracted nature of a data entity can simplify application development and customization. Later, the abstraction also insulates application code from the inevitable churn of the physical tables between versions. To summarize: Data entity provides conceptual abstraction and encapsulation (de-normalized view) of underlying table schemas to represent key data concepts and functionalities.

    Visual studio is indeed the tool used for integration but there are different services which you can make use of for integration with Azure.

    You can refer to this article for building and consuming data entity.

    Moreover this article might be helpful as well to understand how to Integrate Finance and Operations apps with Microsoft Azure.

    Another concept on Finance and Operations apps data in Azure Data Lake can be read here as well.

    Hope it helps!!!
