Business analysts access the software through the EPM Workspace, a central location for viewing and managing content across all of the Hyperion products. The product is extremely flexible and provides analysts with the ability to quickly analyze data and produce deliverables.
The software provides a consistent platform for managing content, where documents can be customized, saved, and shared across an organization.
What is BQY?
When working with Interactive Reporting, it is hard to escape the term BQY. BQY or BrioQuery, is the extension given to all Interactive Reporting document files. Developers create BQY files using the Workspace, Interactive Reporting Web Client, or Interactive Reporting Studio—a developer tool used to create and manage BQY documents outside of the EPM Workspace.
What is EPM workspace?
The EPM Workspace is similar to a portal, where all Oracle Hyperion applications, reports, and other files can be accessed and integrated using a shared security model. The Workspace is accessible through the web browser and contains a filesystem and other gadgets including personal pages and content subscription. Interactive Reporting is one of the many products that integrate with the Workspace, providing users a central location to save, share, and publish content.
Web client interface topics?
Understanding the Web Client interface is crucial to being proficient in the product. The different sections of the software contain a variety of different options, but the location of where to find and utilize these options is the same across the tool. Knowledge of the interface and how to leverage the features of each section is key to unlock the full potential of the product.
The sections of an Interactive Reporting document are the different objects in the software used to aid in querying, analyzing, or displaying information. There are seven types of unique sections. The specifics of each section will be addressed in the following chapters:
- The Query section is the main section used to setup and execute a query from a relational or multi-dimensional database.
Each Query section is accompanied by a Results section where the data returned from the Query is displayed and can be manipulated.
The Table section is similar to the Results section and is used to manipulate and split a dataset into different subsets for analysis.
The Pivot section is specific to a Results or Table section, and is used to graphically display data in pivot table format—similar to Microsoft Excel Pivots.
The Chart section is also specific to a Results or Table section and is used to display data in a chart.
The Report section provides the ability to present pivots, charts, and tables of data in a well formatted document.
Dashboards are used to create custom interfaces or interactive displays of key metrics.
