Installing Unica Audience Central

You must run the Unica installer to start the installation of Audience Central. The Unica installer starts the product installer during the installation process. Make sure that the Unica installer and the product installer are saved at the same location.

Each time that you run the Unica suite installer, you must first enter database connection information for the Platform system tables. When the installer starts, you must enter the required information for Campaign.

The Unica installer requires information about Platform.

After installing Audience Central, you can create an EAR file for your product, and you can install the reports package for your product. Creating the EAR file and installing the reports package are not mandatory actions.

Important: Before you install Audience Central, make sure that the available temporary space on the computer where you install Campaign is more than three times the size of the Audience Central installer.
