TM1Connect operates in two distinct modes depending on how the client application is deployed and how users will access the data. These two modes are Batch Mode and On-Demand Mode using the TM1Connect ODBC driver or the TM1Connect plug-in for QlikView (see Understanding TM1Connect for an overview of these two modes).
