What is Oracle Transactional Business Intelligence (OTBI) 


OTBI is a reporting feature in Oracle Fusion HCM. Structures that provide users with the ability to report on HCM information. OTBI is a real-time, self-service reporting solution. Business Intelligence is fully integrated with Oracle Cloud HCM, which also requires no additional system or security configuration, and it is ready for use once HCM is provisioned and data is available for reporting. OTBI also inherits user roles and security profiles.

      OTBI aims to make reporting easier for Managers and Analysts by providing tools to simply drag and drop fields from subject areas. Further to meet specific requirements, you would possibly got to create or edit reports to capture different data or present it in differently by customizing their components.
There are 3 reasons why OTBI reporting is always preferable :
1) Firstly, the reports which build-out of the Subject Area are interactive in nature,
and users can navigate to another report based on actions which also  configured on the report.
2) Also the Subject areas are accessible to Analysts and Managers based on access provided, then this allows them to create reports easily by choosing columns from the appropriate subject area using the drag-drop approach. Also, the configurations are reusable for creating more reports and

3) Sample reports that can also be edited to meet individual customer requirements.
