Why we have filtered views in CRM? For custom reports which to go for, filtered views or fetch xml?

Definition by Microsoft: "Microsoft Dynamics CRM 4.0 includes SQL database filtered views that are used for business data access. Filtered views are fully compliant with the Microsoft Dynamics CRM security model. When you run a report that obtains data from filtered views, the Microsoft Dynamics CRM security role determines what data you can view in the report."
In other words in pull data from database but with data filtered by your roles.
If you use Crm online you must use fetch xml. Refer the next articles:
