blog series.  This week, we
will look at creating reports using the data in
a datamart.


Datamarts are
self-service analytics solutions, enabling users to store and explore data that
is loaded in a fully managed database.

Last week, we looked
at creating queries using our datamart.  This
week, we’ll show how to create reports.

from these automatically created datasets. 
To create a report, within the appropriate workspace, select the ellipsis
icon next to the datamart.  In the menu

charts, matrices and cards and create interesting content from the datamart by
using the associated dataset.
