Roadmaps and Models
The Teradata Logical Data Model (LDM) and Teradata Data Integration Roadmap (DIR) function like a map and compass to help you see what data you need to solve specific key business improvement opportunities. These sophisticated, industry-specific tools help you leverage data that you already have to address new business improvement opportunities.
Use your LDM and DIR in conjunction with your integrated data warehouse from Teradata to access all centralized, relevant data across the enterprise, regardless of the functional areas, and align your tactical information needs to larger business priorities and goals. Teradata helps eliminate the stovepipe approach to accessing data and, most importantly, gets your IT team and business users focused on connecting their individual pieces to the broader company strategy.
A business-friendly Access Layer can facilitate easy data consumption by business analysts without requiring them to wrestle with underlying complex data structures or deal with specific BI tool limitations.
Solution Modeling Building Blocks (SMBBs) are best practice industry and solution-specific semantic data models (dimensional, analytical data sets, or relational) used to accelerate build-out of a powerful business Access Layer, regardless of platform (data warehouse or discovery), BI tools, or environment maturity.
