Batch processing typically is used for periodic uploads or downloads of large amounts of information into the Siebel database. A typical batch scenario includes:
- Uploading a batch of product catalog and item information into a Siebel Financial Services application from an external system or downloading a batch of all opportunities from Siebel Financial Services applications to another database.
- Downloading all the new contact and accounts for that day from the Siebel application to an external Customer Information File (CIF).
