Hi all,

I usually work with MySQL and now I have to populate Netezza database.
I just see the SQL script to create Netezza tables and I noticed the use of the following labels:
- TWH;
- ODS;
- STG;
- DIM;
- GES.

I guess the meaning of some of them, but it will be very interesting to have detailed information about them.

Thanks in advance.

Those prefixes are not specific to Netezza.  They are names that were made for the tables.

Typically, ODS would be Operational Data Store, DIM would be a dimension table and STG would be a staging table.  TWH and GES I haven't seen before.
