What are industry data models?

An industry data model from IBM acts as a blueprint with common elements based on best practices, government regulations and the complex data and analytic needs of an industry. A model can help you manage data warehouses and data lakes to gather deeper insights for better decision.

The models include warehouse design models, business terminology and business intelligence templates in a predesigned framework for an industry-specific organization to accelerate your analytics journey.
