Today, I was engaged in a discussion with a client on where the Operational Data Store (ODS) issues get started. This discussion led to the question if there is a need for a separate ODS to relieve businesses from associated sluggish effects. Traditional MES systems come with the concept of OLTP (Online Transactional Processing) and OLAP (Online Analytical databases). OLTP databases are used only for the transactional purposes and OLAP is used for reporting purposes.
