Types of Analysis

You can use Callidus Reporting & Analytics (Reporting & Analytics) to perform three types of analyses:
  1. Use a metric and analyze it by one of its dimensions. Results can be used in reports. 
  2. Use multiple metrics and analyze them over shared dimensions. Results can be used in reports. 
  3. Ad-hoc browsing of dimensions for research purposes. Results are intended for research only, not for use in reports. (This is also called Dimensional Browsing.)

Note: In the universe are included effective date and audit time attributes. These objects are provided for dimensional browsing purposes only and are otherwise not to be used in queries or filters in a report or analytic. The metrics themselves automatically use the correct effective versions of the dimensional data.
