TM1 Applications architecture

IBM® TM1® Applications has a multi-tiered architecture that consists of three tiers: Web clients in the Rich tier, Web application servers in the Web tier, and data in the Data tier.

The following diagram shows the multi-tiered architecture and basic communication paths for all the TM1 Applications components.

TM1 Applications architecture overview diagram

The lines in the TM1 Applications architecture diagram show the typical communication paths required for the tasks managed by the TM1 Application Server, such as keeping track of workflow states.

In addition to these communication lines, TM1 Performance Modeler and Cognos® Insight also require a direct connection to the underlying IBM TM1 Server at all times.
