1. Data Provisioning
OCF conceptualizes the principal IS production activities that produce value for the company as transaction processing, data provisioning, and information delivery.
Data provisioning manages the inventory of data and information, using relational database management systems and a data dictionary and data catalog. Transaction processing stores only the current data necessary to provide the status of current operations. Data provisioning receives, stores, and manages all validated transaction data from transaction processing. It also provides

access to the management information and the processes used to create it. Moreover, the information warehouse has to be able to provide the tools to turn this information into presentations and also to store these presentations. The OCF people considered that the necessary tools needed to support an information warehouse (such as information warehouse store compound documents that may include image, voice, and graphics information) do not exist yet but that they are being developed.
