This chapter will focus on the dynamic functions and aspects of the Essbase reporting tools. As with security, the value that a developer provides is a good plan to leverage the tools function with the goal of conducting flexible and sustainable reports. Sometime this means having to modify your Essbase outline to accommodate reporting needs. Reports that are designed well should not have to be touched every month. In addition, there may come a time when leveraging this functionality is the only way to continue to provide for the business needs without frequent disruptions or a perpetual heavy load of maintenance. This chapter will not cover all the functions available in both web analysis and financial reports as there are too many to discuss in full here.
