In any organisation, common information can be interesting to multiple users. However, the way this information wants to be seen by different users may differ substantially. Oracle BI supports multiple visualization options by offering a wide range of views. With them, a report can be displayed as a table, chart, pivot table, etc.
In some other cases, the chosen view may be the same, but the measures precision may be different depending on the user visualization of the information.
