Opportunities and Competitors Reporting Subject Area

Availability

This subject area is available in all editions of Oracle CRM On Demand.

Business Purpose

This subject area allows you to analyze the many-to-many relationship between opportunities and competitor accounts. This subject area is almost identical to the opportunity subject areas. The only difference is that it includes the competitor account dimension, which has a many-to-many relationship with the opportunity record type. This subject area allows you to create reports to show all the competitors for an opportunity. Because this subject area represents the many-to-many relationship between opportunities and competitor accounts, the opportunities that do not have an association with at least one competitor account cannot be reported using this subject area. The attributes that define the competitor account relationship that are available for reporting include the following:

  • Primary Contact
  • Role
  • Reverse Role
  • Start Date
  • End Date
  • Strengths
  • Weaknesses
  • Comments

Optimized Filtering Fields

This subject area has fields that are optimized for reducing the query time when they are used in filters. Optimized fields end with the words Code or UTC. For example, the Account dimension has an Account Type field. There is also an Account Type Code field, which is the optimized version of the Account Type field. Similarly, there is a Last Call Date UTC field, which is the optimized version of the Last Call Date field. Using the optimized field in the filter generates faster queries. This method is faster than using the standard field. For information on using optimized filtering fields, see Using Optimized Filtering Fields. The following dimensions in this subject area have optimized filtering fields:

  • Account
  • Campaign
  • Contact
  • Opportunity
