Operational data store. In business intelligence, reporting can occur on the TPS / OLTP system itself, but this often taxes the system and provides limited analytical visibility into the business. An ODS takes multiple operational systems’ databases and consolidates them into a reporting table. This provides multiple operational views from one location. An ODS does not, however, normalize transactional data into business objects. That is the job of a data warehouse.
