data analyzer uses roughly a dozen views on the MM repository.
those views are called IMA*.
you could build a similar schema layer in other BI tools, and customers have indeed done this.
I've been trying to do the same thing. MM has no reporting tool so we are trying to write Oracle SQL queries, store the data and then use our own BI tools to report. I've had some luck. What specifically are you trying to report on ?
will you be able to help. I trying to write queries to track lineage from start to end.
