Financial Services Data Model (FSDM)
The Financial Services Data Model (FSDM) is a Foundational Model and is common between the Banking Process and Service Model and the Banking Data Warehouse (BDW) Models.
The FSDM provides an integrated reference point for business terms and descriptions of information used across the architecture. It is independent of any physically implemented solution and is a shared component among both data and service-oriented architecture (SOA) offerings since it is the single reference point for all information needed by the organization.
The fundamental purpose of FSDM is to enable the business concepts that make up a particular issue to be understood and communicated clearly. It is structured to be cross-enterprise in scope. FSDM provides a framework for the development of consistent cross-enterprise data structures that promote information sharing and reuse across business applications.
