|This page shows three Design Patterns.
The first starts with the Operational Data Store (ODS).
This means that we can apply a simple test to determine whether Data Models exist for all
important Data Sources.
If they do, then we can say that the work has been done to the established standards of Best Practice.
The second shows how Semantic Building Blocks provide a 'User Friendly' front-end.
This helps Users to request KPIs, Reports and analyses using words and terminology that they normally use.
For example, talking about Customers, rather than Parties.
Finally, we show the complete End-to-End scope of Data Models.
The Common Data Model is used to standardise data that is loaded into the Data Warehouse (DWH).
We can also be sure that we have a 'Single View of the Truth' at any point in time.
It helps us to build the design of the DWH in a step-by-step fashion.
