Entry in the top-level navigation bar area. The tab name comes from the role that was designed in the Role Editor. A tab on the second level of the navigation bar can launch a page with content or a service.

target Business Information Warehouse

BW System to which another BW System is connected as a source system, and into which you can load data using export DataSources.

target object

An object, in a delta link relationship, whose properties are automatically updated when changes are made to its source object. In a delta link relationship, the source object is the origin from which the properties of the target object were inherited.


Combination of more than one operation that one or more people perform independently to achieve a defined objective. The task feature supports completion of the task by the assigned processor and tracking of the task by the task assigner. You can use tasks within SAP Collaboration and outside of it.

task dashboard

An overview of all tasks for all projects that are assigned to the user or the user is authorized to see.

  • Example 1:*
    Users assigned to projects A, B, and C see only those tasks to which they are assigned.
  • Example 2:*
    A project manager assigned to projects D, E, F, and G sees all the tasks for those projects.

task queue service

A global service used for load-balancing. Applications that run on servers in a load-balancing environment place tasks in a task queue. The tasks are then read and carried out by one of the Content Management systems available in the load-balancing environment.


Hierarchy of categories used to classify documents based on their content.


See Trusted Computing Base.


See Total Cost of Ownership.

TCP Connection Management

Like Secure Socket Layer (SSL) offload, TCP connection management technologies reduce the burden placed on the Web server by reducing the total number of TCP connections that must be opened, managed and closed through multiplexing techniques, thus providing the Web server with a greater amount of resources to dedicate to serving requested pages.

Team Calendar

Collaboration Room members can maintain project-related and team-related calendar entries, all personal calendar entries, and team availability within a unified scenario.

Team Members

Team members in a Collaboration Room are people who have access to a Collaboration Room and access to the information and data stored there. The Collaboration Room owner must invite members to the room.

technology type

A category by which projects can be grouped. For example, the technology type for a hardware R and D organization would be base, key, pacing, and embryonic technologies.


Templates are content objects that can be used to create other objects (iViews, portal pages, or systems) for use in the portal. Templates can be created from portal components or from other templates. A new object that is created from a template inherits the properties, values, and attributes defined in the template.

Template Builder

This iView enables you to copy templates, modify templates, and create new templates. To create a template, you must define three pieces of information using the template builder: Template description, Collaboration Room properties, and Mapping rules.

template definition

Part of the Collaboration Room template. Consists of the template description, Collaboration Room properties, and mapping rules.

template description

A brief description of the Collaboration Room template. This outlines the application area for the Collaboration Room template, how the template is structured, and which iViews it contains.

Terminal Services/User Interface Virtualization

Rather than the entire file being transmitted from a client to the server every time the user saves, only screen information is transmitted over the network — the application and data are all on the server to begin with. Both latency and bandwidth utilization can be reduced using terminal services.


Check of internal information about Business Warehouse (BW) objects for consistency, and gives a repair option, if necessary. A test consists of several elementary tests. You can select the required elementary tests individually so that you do not have to conduct unnecessary testing.

test package

Sequence of elementary tests as result of selecting specific tests or elementary tests. You can save a test package and schedule it to run later.

text mining

Methods for extracting information from natural-language texts.

text mining engine

TREX component that offers text-mining functions such as classification, search for similar documents, and feature extraction.

The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF)

TOGAF is a framework for Enterprise Architecture, which provides a comprehensive approach to the design, planning, implementation, and governance of an enterprise information architecture. The architecture is typically modeled at four levels or domains; Business, Application, Data, Technology


Defines the colors and imagery of a portal desktop. A portal desktop may support more than portal theme to suit different users' tastes. Customers may create their own themes using the theme templates provided in the Theme Editor.

Theme Editor

The Theme Editor is an easy-to-use user interface with which you can edit a fixed number of theme properties (such as the background color) and hereby change the look and feel of the portal. The relevant stylesheets are generated automatically. The stylesheets do not have to be edited directly in the stylesheet files.

Third-Party Logistics Provider (3PL)

A 3PL provides outsourced or third-party logistics services to companies for part or sometimes all of their supply chain management function. Third-party logistics providers typically specialize in integrated warehousing and transportation services that can be customized.

time-dependent publishing

Function that allows you to specify a time frame during which a document is visible. Whether or not this function can be used depends on the settings of the folder in which the document is located.

title area

The part of an enterprise portal that does not change when the user navigates from one page to another. It contains the header area with the company logo, the quick search box, and the top-level navigation.

t-logo object

Logical transport object combining several table entries to be transported together. For example, the T-Logo object "InfoObject" consists of the table entries of the InfoObject table, the characteristic table, the text table, and the basic characteristic table.


See The Open Group Architecture Framework.

tool area

A persistent area in the portal header area that displays and provides ready access to such key applications as real-time collaboration or a search component. Applications may vary based on the company and user. This area could also include such features as alerts, e-mail notification, people search, and link to the company phone list.


A collection of data and navigation components, which is group-, role-, or user-based, that appears in the Enterprise Portal iPanel.

The ability to chronologically interrelate the uniquely identifiable entities. It can be used to certify an instrument's accuracy relative to a known standard.

Document that belongs to a document set used for training a taxonomy. Training documents help the text mining engine to learn which features are typical of individual categories in a taxonomy.

trash folder

An iPanel folder in which the user can permanently delete unlocked components.


Grouping control that offers a preconfigured set of functions, such as collapse/expand, remove, personalize, and refresh.

TREX engine
