Application Owner

Every application must have an owner. From an administrative point of view the application owner ideally is the database user in whose account the application data structures are actually created (in an RDBMS environment, the one creating objects automatically owns them). Usually the application owner will be the person given the role of application manager, or the person providing other users with appropriate rights in the production environment.

Technically the application owner may differ from the database object owner. It is even possible (although rather useless) to register someone as application owner, without the right to perform any action on the application's tables at all.
