Operating Unit vs Business Group

• With Multi-Org you can define an owning Operating Unit and associate this with a profile option -MO:Operating Unit. When you define data or execute a business process within Oracle Financial, then the system automatically attaches the id of your Operating Unit organization to the data or transaction.
• With Business Group security model in HRMS you can secure data and processes by id of the Business
Group.However, in HRMS, the Business Group id is closely related to the country of operation, and not simply a division or line of business.
• Both look the same but it is important to realize that these are distinct and different mechanisms for two different functional areas. This is especially true for any global implementation of HRMS where the data for each country exists within a single business group but Operating Units exist across many countries, and business groups.
