So far we have built and managed our database using the SQL*Plus interface, but there are a number of tools available to the user, DBA, and designer to facilitate easy warehouse creation and access. Now we will review some of the tools available from Oracle, which includes:
Reports (described in Chapter 8)
OLAP and data mining (described in Chapter 9)
Oracle Warehouse Builder is a tool that helps the DBA design and manage the data warehouse, whereas Oracle Discoverer is an end-user tool for querying your data warehouse.
