Abstract: The University of Pretoria (South Africa) has an extensive Oracle footprint (PeopleSoft HCM; FSCM; CRM.;Campus / WebCenter / SOA / I&AM / OBIA). In order to improve the management of various business processes that are attachment 'heavy' - and reduce the need to store attachments directly in PeopleSoft; extensive use has been made of WebCenter's RIDC interface to facilitate the uploading of documents via PeopleSoft into the Oracle WebCenter Document suite; and the subsequent retrieval of these documents from WebCenter by having Peoplesoft invoke the RIDC document retrieval API.

Objective 1: Describing the capabilites of the WebCenter RIDC interface and how this can be configured to enable attachments that are temporarily uploaded to PeopleSoft to be migrated into secure WebCenter repositories/folios (rather than PSoft File Servers)

Objective 2: Using practical business examples that demonstrate the benefits of having the blend of transactional metadata stored in PeopleSoft tables; whilst using the capabilities of WebCenter to effectively manage and organise the related content (attachments)

Objective 3: Clarifying the benefits of using PeopleSoft Security (Roles and Permission Lists) to control who has access to both the transactional data in PeopleSoft as well as controlling which users are authorised to retrieve the related files from WebCenter.
