Overview of Oracle Marketing Encyclopedia System
Oracle Marketing Encyclopedia System (MES) is a content repository
management component of the CRM suite of applications that allows you
to create, publish, and manage content. It also allows you to organize
content in different hierarchies.
Hierarchy of categories and channels are the means to store, organize, and
distribute different types of content items in the MES repository.
A hierarchy can have unlimited levels of categories. Channels are the
lowest level in the hierarchy of categories that contain published items.
Access to the MES repository is controlled through the Access Manager. A
MES administrator can set up access privileges for users. MES also has a
concept of groups to which access privileges can be setup. An administrator
can define different groups and associate users to these groups.
Depending on your access privileges, you can create categories or channels,
publish items, and approve publishing items to a particular channel.
