Oracle Discoverer 10g (Oracle BI Suite Standard Edition) Query & Analysis

Oracle Discoverer is an improvised query and analysis tool which allows users to do basic query construction along with tables, cross tabs and charts. End users can interactively navigate, drill down, slice and dice, aggregate and add calculations. It is very commonly used with Oracle RDMBS (most likely with the OLAP database option) and embedded in a number of Oracle Applications in the Oracle e-Business Suite.

The major advantages of Discoverer are Personalized Portals where worksheets can be tailored at the portal level for each user, the reality that it comes in a bundle which affects its price and its technology infrastructure is generally very well received by IT.

The setback with Discoverer is that its future is rather uncertain and it should be rather considered as a legacy product. amongst other weaknesses it is worth stating that it is Oracle only (only Oracle native connection, no multiple data sources, other RDBMS via ODBC only) and its reporting capabilities are limited to singly block (only one graph/crosstab/table).

Discoverer competes with Query Studio, Analysis Studio, Report Studio (for IBM Cognos 8) and SAP BusinessObjects Web Intelligence and Desktop Intelligence.
