Note: Having a content repository integrated with P6 can turn cluttered, unstructured content
into organized assets by making it easier to catalog, access, search, and reuse documentation.
Note 2: BI Publisher
BI Publisher is a key part of the Oracle Fusion Middleware stack. The technology for BI Publisher was originally developed for Oracle E-Business suite, but it is now used in a wide range of systems, including Primavera Contract Manager, JD Edwards, and PeopleSoft. From a user#39;s point-of view, it is very convenient to learn one well designed
reporting tool that is also used in many other systems. BI Publisher has many users, and many resources available to help with reporting needs.
BI Publisher is designed such that the data being reported on is completely separated from the layout of the report, and the layout of the report is completely separated
from the report output format.
