Re: Advanced Reporting Techniques and Roles

Hi:
Because you are talking about Stored Processes and Metadata, it sounds like you are looking for some type of informatioin on the SAS Platform for Business Analytics, also knows as the BI Platform. I'm confused whether you want to know more information about SAS/GRAPH (since this is the SAS/GRAPH forum) and the BI Platform.

Without any context for your question, it's very hard to figure out how to answer. Some examples of possible contexts for your question are:
I'm trying to find out the right class to take? OR
I need to teach myself advanced reporting techniques so I can get certified.

This learning path, for example, provides training in the topics you mentioned, specifically for the person who is in a job role of BI Content Developer:

And, much of the terminology in your question, looks like it came from the description of the BI Content Developer certification information from this site:
http://support.sas.com/certify/creds/bic.html

If you look at the description of the exam content, you will see that those topics encompass many different client applications and platform applications used in the SAS Platform for Business Analytics:
