Object Data Model
Definition - What does Object Data Model mean?
Techopedia explains Object Data Model
An object data model is that data or code is composed of modules that combine data and procedures that work on the data. With this type of model, data handlers can ask advanced sets of questions about sets of data, such as: how many of these "objects" conform to a certain format, and how much data do each of them hold?
This idea is also useful in object-oriented programming, which brings the object model to code.
As systems deal with larger and larger sets of information, object data models are helping by making data sets more responsive to queries and other types of analysis.
