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. They are pre-built models specifically designed for an industry’s data needs. IBM Industry Data Models can jumpstart an organization down the path towards a comprehensive analytics environment by applying proven best practices in data modeling to self-contained units of business functionality.
The models provide organizations within a specific industry a predesigned, out-of-the-box framework to help accelerate the development of business intelligence applications. The models can serve as a foundation for an information management infrastructure where key data have already been identified and made available to the enterprise for decision making at any level.
IBM Industry Data Models also work hand-in-hand with IBM Process and Service Models. Process and Service Models are specifications of processes and services common among organizations in a particular industry. These models represent best practice business process models with supportive service definitions for development of a fluid, service-oriented environment. Many organizations choose to complement their IBM Industry Data Model together with IBM Process and Service Models.
