It provides a complete environment for management and administration facilities, enabling organizations to build and deploy standard reports, provide ad hoc and online analytical processing (OLAP) capabilities to specified users, monitor usage, assign user groups, define access rights, schedule distribution, provide event-driven alerts, and ensure security.
