Common Data Service is an Azure based service that allows you to bring data together from the Dynamics family of products, along with other external sources. It is based on the concept of having data living together in one place, where it can be served to apps created through PowerApps.

As described in this previous article, you start by creating an environment. With that in hand, you are ready to create your first database. Make sure you are an administrator in the current environment where the database is to be create, and that the correct license is assigned to you. You create the database either through the Admin center as described in the linked article, of directly from the PowerApps working console, by selecting first the environment you will work in, and then navigating to Common Data Service > Entities.
