The people buying your product, will want it to do things it doesn’t do today. They’ll want to plug it into other products, their business processes, etc.


I think you’ll have a more successful product if you go the other way.


I spend a lot of time helping customers stuck with products and solutions where the data model and documentation are poor or missing, so maybe I’m biased.

Hi Experts,


We are having data model for our product, which we do not want to expose to our customers. That is we want even the DBA of customer with sys privileges should not understand /access the data model( like table definitions, columns ).


I am aware of options like VPD, which is data level security feature as per my understanding.


Please let me know your thoughts
