What we want:
1) Hot backup time reduced. 2) Ability to create reporting database using this backup daily. This process also should be faster than what we have now. I would like to know how RMAN can help our scenario.
Now that RMAN is backing up your database, you can use RMAN to create a clone of that database on another server for your reporting applications. RMAN doesn't care if the clone is created from a full database backup or from the baseline plus incrementals. RMAN will handle all of this for you!
Please read the RMAN documentation as it contains all of the information you'll need for incremental backups and for creating clones of the database.
