What is the use of views

A view is nothing more than a SQL statement that is stored in the database with an associated name. A view is actually a composition of a table in the form of a predefined SQL query. A view can contain all rows of a table or select rows from a table

I usually create views to de-normalize and/or aggregate data frequently used for reporting purposes.
