08 Feb Why doesn’t Oracle provide view only access to their data via forms???
I’ll continue to say it… Oracle doesn’t have a clue how to build their applications to meet common GRC and internal control requirements. Those that have followed my work for long know my feelings on this topic…
In the traditional forms development standards Oracle has provided organizations with the ability to easily create a custom “read only” form by setting the QUERY_ONLY=Yes parameter. However, in OA framework forms, no equivalent process has been provided. Why not? Because they don’t understand how companies have to customize (personalize) the application in the real world.
EVERY form/web page should have an equivalent inquiry form out-of-the-box. Auditors and others in the organization such as Business Analysts need access to such data in Production environments and NOT via Discoverer, OBIEE, or another other ad hoc method.
Thanks for listening to my rants…
