Renaming Siebel Account Objects
In general, Siebel applications refer to companies as accounts. In the Financial Services industry, the term account has typically been synonymous with financial accounts, so historically the word company has been used in many places in Siebel Finance. By default, Siebel Finance installs using the term accounts. Users can change this term and use another description, such as Companies, Clients, or Customers. Users wishing to change this default need to rename all Siebel Account objects prior to deployment. Make changes to the UI layer (for example, applet titles and control labels), rather than the Business Objects layer. For more information, see Upgrade Guide.
NOTE: All of the chapters in this guide are written assuming you have renamed Siebel Account objects to Companies.
