 if you want to analyze data in existing worksheets, you will use Discoverer Viewer or Discoverer portlets (that have been added to an Oracle Portal page using Discoverer Portlet Provider)

: If you want to display Discoverer worksheets as gauges in dashboard-style portals, you will use Discoverer Portlet Provider and Discoverer portlets  if you want to manage the end user view of relational data, you will use Discoverer Administrator

A business area is a collection of related information in the database. The Discoverer manager works with the different departments in your organization to identify the information that each department requires from the database. A folder is similar to a database table or view. Indeed, a folder can be based directly on a database table or view an item is similar to a column in a database table.

In a relational data source, data is organized in tables. A table is a data structure with columns and rows. Multidimensional data is data that is organized by one or more dimensions. These multidimensional data structures are often referred to as cubes.

A cube in a multidimensional data source has the following components:

A measure, which is the name given to the data itself; that is, to the data that you track such as sales figures or cost numbers.

 One or more dimensions. Dimension is the name given to the parts of the cube that categorize the data, such as Product, Geography, and Time. Dimensions have dimension members, dimension hierarchies, and attributes.

In OLAP metadata, measures represent data that can be examined and analyzed in crosstabs and graphs.

The Discoverer Catalog is a repository for storing and retrieving definitions of objects for Discoverer Plus OLAP and can be used by applications that are built with Oracle Business Intelligence Beans (BI Beans). With Discoverer Plus OLAP, you use the Catalog to store objects such as workbooks, calculations, and saved selections and to share objects with others who have access to the Catalog. For example, you can use a BI Beans application to create a graph and store it in the Catalog. If another user has appropriate access, that user can retrieve the graph that you stored in the Catalog and insert the graph into a new worksheet in Discoverer Plus OLAP.

You can maximize Discoverer performance.

 use tabular reports rather than cross-tabular reports
 minimize the number of page items in reports
 avoid wide cross tabular report
 avoid creating reports that return tens of thousands of rows
 provide parameters to reduce the amount of data produced
 minimize the number of worksheets in workbooks
 remove extraneous worksheets from workbooks
