Are you looking for tools to 'report' or review audit records or tools to help you set up and configure auditing, or both?

I guess I also need to ask how your applications work?  

Many applications today do not allows users of the application to log directly into the database and perform work.  You log into the 'app' and the application does all the database work for you.

So if you are looking to audit those types of apps, you will need to work the the app provider.

you can check TOAD (Quest Software’s Toad for Oracle) which can provide you the desired report for audit in oracle DB or check Deloitte’s OASIS Tool.

1-to setup audit and configure audit to log DDL (create, alter, drop objects..), DML (insert, update..) and System Events (logon, logoff..)

c:\sqlplus sys/password AS SYSDBA

sql> AUDIT ALL BY <user> BY ACCESS;
sql> AUDIT SELECT TABLE, UPDATE TABLE, INSERT TABLE, DELETE TABLE BY <user> BY ACCESS;
sql> AUDIT EXECUTE PROCEDURE BY <user> BY ACCESS;



2-to view the audit
SELECT username,
       extended_timestamp,
       owner,
       obj_name,
       action_name
FROM   dba_audit_trail
WHERE  owner = '<user>'
ORDER BY timestamp;

you can run the sql statement on any sql editor tools and output it into csv/text/html provided by that tools (such as Toad, SQL Navigator, Tora and etc). And massaging the data in any reporting tool you have.
