Ralph provides an excellent description of what Folio is really meant to do.
PeopleSoft uses it somewhat outside of its designed use.

I do want to add one thing I forgot: If you are going to use it, you should
analyze whether you need to provide some sort of help to your users--I don't
find it to be a particularly intuitive tool, even the sample infobases I've
seen online.
