What are industry data models?

An industry data model from IBM is a set of business and technical data models that are predesigned to meet the needs of a particular industry. It acts as a blueprint that provides common elements derived from best practices, government regulations and the complex data and analytic needs of an industry-specific organization.

Within the schematics of an industry data model from IBM are data warehouse design models, business terminology and business intelligence templates. The models provide organizations within a specific industry a predesigned framework to help accelerate the development of business intelligence applications. 

These frameworks provide a catalog of industry-specific terminology and concepts, data structure designs and KPI and report designs, which can quickly help governance, compliance and integration efforts.
