Opportunities Reporting Subject Area


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

Business Purpose

This subject area allows you to analyze opportunities by account, territory, campaign, contact, territory, owner, and date dimensions. This subject area is a multi-fact subject area that includes opportunity and quota metrics. Opportunity metrics are defined at the most granular level in this subject area, and hence, can be analyzed by every possible dimension. However, Quota metrics are at less granular level and can be analyzed only by limited dimensions including Date (Month), Quota, Owner.

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
