Introduction > Data Integration tools > Assets


In Data Integration, assets are mappings, taskflows, and tasks such as mapping tasks, synchronization tasks, and replication tasks. Assets also include components such as business services, mapplets, and hierarchical schemas.
Create the assets you need to satisfy your business needs. Templates are available for certain asset types. You can use a template as-is, or you can use it as head start and customize it to meet your needs.
You can use assets in multiple projects. All assets must be part of at least one project. If you create an asset without specifying a project, the asset is created in the Default project.
