MultiOrg means different operating Units
MultiOrg or Multiple Organizations Architecture allows multiple operating units and their relationships to be defined within a single installation of Oracle Applications. This keeps each operating unit's transaction data separate and secure.

Multi org is basically meant for two things:
 -  To capture transactions of multiple organizations in same instance instead of going for a new instance of oracle apps.
 -  To control the database access: a responsibility associated with one operating unit cannot access data of another operating unit.

Access control is the basic requirement when multiple organizations are defined.
