Oracle Analytics Server (OAS) Answers is the tool used to build an ad hoc query and associated views of the data, such as tables, pivots or charts. It is the equivalent of using a Brio/Hyperion Model to build an ad hoc query or report. Together, the query and one or more views are referred to as an Analysis or an Answers request. The query is built from a set of tables and columns displayed in a Windows-like directory referred to as a presentation catalog, for a specific Subject Area, which is essentially the underlying Data Model for a certain Business Process.
