Batching - Batching is an activity that allows a group of tasks occurring at different
times to be processed all at the same time, while requiring little or no interaction
from the user. For most environments, batching is performed to transport data
from computer to computer where the database is running. There are two common methods for batching data into or out of a database:
Automatic Batch/Data Feeds: This method requires no human interaction
because batching scripts have been written that automatically uploads the
data. See illustration #7.
Manual Batch/Data Feeds: This method is a manual process that requires
human interaction because the user enables the execution of the batching

See the following reference for the rest of the information on what constitutes batching:
