Hi @duncant ,

Yes, model-driven app only has one data source: CDS.

Model-driven apps start with your data model – building up from the shape of your core business data and processes in the Common Data Service to model forms, views, and other components. Model-driven apps automatically generate great UI that is responsive across devices.

Here's a doc about this kind of app for your reference:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/

If you want your app connected with other data sources, please consider using canvas app.

There are many choices of data sources in canvas app.
