BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE Questions and Answers

Why we cannot create an aggregate on an ODS Object?

  • Operational Data Store has very low data latency. Data moved to ODS mostly on event based rather than time based ETL to Data Warehouse/Data Mart.
  • ODS is more closer to OLTP system. We don’t normally prefer to store aggregated data in OLTP. So it is with ODS.
  • Unlike data warehouse where data is HISTORICAL, ODS is near real time(NRT). So data aggregation is less important is ODS as data keeps changing.
