Create a Talend Business Model

Talend Business Model is a graphical representation of the project flow (data flow) that helps the staff to understand the needs of a project. In general, we don’t create a business model because we use third-party tools to design or explain the business flow.

In order to create a business model, right-click on the business model folder in a repository and select create business model option from the context menu. Or you have an existing business model, and you can import that using the import items option. If you want to export the created business model, you can export it using the Export items option.
