Oracle Report Manager is an online report distribution system that provides a secure and centralized location to produce and manage point-in-time reports.

Oracle Report Manager users can be either report producers or report consumers. Report producers submit, publish, and set security for reports. Report consumers view and approve reports.

Reports can be published and presented to certain responsibilities without additional security or a variety of security models can be applied, allowing only authorized users to view entire reports or parts of reports. In addition, you can use your templates to integrate reports displayed by Report Manager using your organization’s individual style.
