    1. Database Administrator - Each database requires at least one database administrator (DBA) to administer it.

    2. Security Officers - A security officer enrolls users, controls and monitors user access to the database, and maintains system security.

    3. Network Administrator - A network administrator can administer Oracle networking products, such as Oracle Net Services.

    4. Application Developers - Application developers design and implement database applications.

    5. Application Administrators - An Oracle site can assign one or more application administrators to administrate a particular application. Each application can have its own administrator.

    6. Database Users - Database users interact with the database through applications or utilities. A typical user's responsibilities include the following tasks:
    - Entering, modifying, and deleting data, where permitted
    - Generating reports from the data
