Optimizing data management

I am currently using Power BI and Power APPs, and plan on learning/using Power Automate.  How should the data be stored and managed to optimize between these systems.  I have started with the PowerBI of importing XLS.  Will be switching to ODBC for most of the data.  And set up a Dataverse for Power APP.  Is there a way to have a single data flow that all the tools reference?  Should I move the data to Azure SQL?

I'm not sure what you are asking here. Power Automate is an automate tool that assists you in managing the data between all of your systems. Nothing is really stored in Power Automate, it just helps with managing data in other systems. From their its really just up to the user and personal preference.

Above are the screen shots of the PowerBI that shows the embedded Power App.  In this view, it shows the data I have selected to include in the Power App.

There is a screen shot of a power app that has data in it.  The way I have accessed this data is through setting up a table in Dataverse.

But the other power app screen shots is the power app that is linked to the PowerBI, and initially, it showed data.  But when I closed and reopened, it now is blank.

Question is how to I get the PowerBI data to be the source of data for the Power App?
