We have a requirement to supply a customer with a Reporting and Data Analysis Tool recommendation and I have absolutely no experience in this field whatsoever....  

Some examples put up for consideration were Crystal Enterprise Server, Oracle BI/Hyperion, Alterian DDV but this list was obviously not exhaustive. Has anyone gone through anything similar and can point me to best practices, documentations, case studies, previous implementations etc.  

I could just go through each products glossies/white papers etc but I am not sure that would be of any use initially as I wouldn't know which was better than the others.  

The Data Warehouse will be built on Oracle 10g on AIX and will have Mart(s) generated from it for reporting purposes.  

Sorry for the vagueness of the request but I really am a newcomer to this sort of stuff.  

Regards and TIA.
