What is BI Publisher?

What is BI Publisher?

Its a component of OBIEE (Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition) where a developer can create a layout (just the layout) for complex-layout report.

 

Examples:

The following report has two totals at the bottom.  This is simple, why to use BI publisher for it? Well, its just an example of Row-level columns.  Report can have All Concomitant drugs separated by comma (,)  as a row level column.

So, create a layout in Microsoft word.

Bring the layout in to OBIEE

Integrate a report in to BI layout.
