Oracle Hyperion: Pivots

by Edward J. Cody | September 2010 | Enterprise Articles Oracle

Pivots are one of the most widely used tools for analyzing and presenting data. Interactive Reporting Pivots provide the business analyst with a very effective method to summarize and analyze a dataset, providing the ability to quickly modify, compute, and rearrange data while easily repopulating the dataset with new data.
