Setting Up Your Project
In TimeXtender, your work is organized in projects stored in a repository on a SQL Server. Each project is basically a collection of data warehouses, tables, fields, business units, execution packages, semantic models, etc.
In this chapter, we will cover the objects found in most projects: the project itself, data warehouses, business units and staging databases. Each project can contain any number of data warehouse databases or business units. In turn, each business unit contains a staging database and a number of data sources.
Missing from the list above are data sources. They are covered in the chapter Data Sources.
Note: If you use an ODX server, data will be copied directly from the ODX server to a data warehouse. Consequently, you won't be using business units, including the staging database and the data sources that make up a business unit.
