# Business Situation
Users wanted a way to use data in TM1 cubes without having to pull the data into Excel. For example, instead of pulling TM1 data into an Excel file and then connecting that file in Tableau, users wanted a way to create a direct connection to TM1. TM1Connect was that solution. Now teams are able to use the ODBC connection to assist in the visualization of data in their forecasting process as well as efficiently producing reports in a more automated way.
# Technical Situation
Before TM1Connect, users were pulling large amounts of data into Excel spreadsheets which slowed down their forecasting and reporting process. By eliminating data pulls into Excel and re-uploading that data into a different data sets or models, users are now able to access data more efficiently.
