In Teradata normally access is to views but not directly to tables. Why?
What sort of security threats can one expect if access is provided directly to tables?
One scenario which a colleague of mine mentioned is ..if you have 100 columns in a table some of which are confidential, you'd create a view with only non-confidential columns. Apart from this the object securities with view/table etc are more or less the same. Alter table etc., are the other issues.. Any other reasons which the TDATA user community can suggest?
