Operational Data Store (ODS)

Definition - What does Operational Data Store (ODS) mean?

An operational data store (ODS) is a type of database that collects data from multiple sources for processing, after which it sends the data to operational systems and data warehouses.

It provides a central interface or platform for all operational data used by enterprise systems and applications.

Techopedia explains Operational Data Store (ODS)

An ODS is used to store short term data or data currently in use by operational systems or applications, prior to storage in a data warehouse or data repository. Thus, it serves as an intermediate database.

An ODS helps clean and organize data and ensure that it meets business and regulatory requirements. It only supports low level data and allows for the application of limited queries.
