I know this questions has been asked many times before but the answers I saw in the knowledge base were years old. I'm hoping that technology has changed and it may now be possible.

I have a script that we're using to collect much information about our computers and users. I need it to write the data to an Oracle DB but would rather not install client on all workstations (which I think would introduce new problems I'd rather avoid). I read that EZ Connect can do it but it seems to me that it still needs Oracle Client installed. Does anyone know if it's possible to connect to an Oracle DB without having to install Oracle Client?
