CDS Entity and SQL Table


Dear Community,

I'm a newbie in HANA and I have no clear the difference between a CDS Entity and SQL Table.

We are migrating all our datawarehouses to HANA to build Design Studio Dashboards, up to now we have imported all our Tables in HANA importing the data throug CVS files. I guess that the new column store tables created by the import wizard in SAP HANA Studio are SQL Tables, aren't they?

In a near future surely we have to modify our tables, adding new fields, changing other fields, making new relationships. Are CDS Entities more flexible than SQL Tables?
