    Unanswered: Oracle BI - A little confused....

    I'm investigating Oracle's BI toolset, and I keep going around in circles on their website....

    I've determined the BI tools are part of the "Fusion Middleware" line, but I can't seem to find anything that separates their pre-built applications from the development tools themselves.

    Simple question, what is the development tool for building canned reports? (i.e. graphs, lists, dashboards, etc...) ...or is there one? I'm looking for something to compare Crystal Reports against.

    thanks in advance!

    Oracle development tool for building canned reports similar to Crystal Reports is: Oracle Discoverer.

    For something more complex you may need the Oracle Business Intelligence Suite

    I thought that Discoverer was an end user ad hoc query tool, but that Developer was similar to Crystal Reports.
