Simple enough question. I know all about being able to store documents in an Oracle database. My question is why would you do this? What great business benefit to a company in storing documents in this fashion? I can think of two: security and recoverability, but if the network is secure and backed-up, is Oracle any better?

Have I missed something here folks? Anyone know any good on-line docs or resources where I can read up the concepts in a business scenario?
