What are industry models?

An IBM Industry Data Model is a set of business and technical data models that are pre-designed 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 IBM Industry Data Model are data warehouse design models, business terminology and business intelligence templates. The models provide organizations within a specific industry a pre-designed 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.

IBM Industry Models can help accelerate your analytics journey by applying best practices, using pre-designed industry-specific content. It can help you manage your enterprise data, whether in your data warehouse or in the data lake, so you can derive insights and make informed decisions.
