TMDS Team Lead
The Air Mobility Command (AMC) faced significant data integrity problems in the early 1990’s. Individual communities within the Command developed command and control (C2) systems using their particular view of the data values. The communities did not coordinate with each other on standards so the systems had trouble sharing understandable data. The AMC managers decided that they needed to take several actions to improve the data sharing capabilities and the data integrity of their systems. A key component of this multi-faceted approach was the Table Management Distribution System (TMDS). TMDS provides consistent reference data across all 5 major C2 systems within AMC. In addition, TMDS distributes this reference data for synchronized updates. A process that used to take weeks now takes an hour for global distribution and application. The introduction of standardized reference data reduced the data exchange reject rate from 50% to 7%. TMDS now supports 125 systems with approximately 1400 tables of reference data.

A Contrarian View of the ODS Value in a CIF

The ODS has historically been an interim, staging area where CIF source data is staged and then transformed into a data warehouse or data mart. Nextel’s experience, however, suggests that the CIF’s value and future may lie in its ODS rather than its integrated data warehouse. The speaker advocates a bottom up approach, and challenges the conventional implementations. The Nextel experience is summarized in the following eight misconceptions:
