1 About BRM Reports

This chapter provides an overview of Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) Reports implemented with Oracle Business Intelligence (BI) Publisher.

Introducing BRM Reports

BRM Reports is a set of report templates that you can use to track customer activity and billing. These templates are designed to be used with a BRM database and BI Publisher.

Before using BRM Reports, you should be familiar with basic BRM terms and concepts. For more information, see BRM Concepts.

You can run the reports from any Windows 2000 or Windows XP computer that has access to your BRM database.

You can display and print report results in tabular text format, a chart, or both. You can also save reports to disk, convert reports to Portable Document Format (PDF) or Rich Text Format (RTF), and display reports on HTML Web pages, all with BI Publisher. BI Publisher also supports XML data format.
