OOPS! Who developed the Saudi Railways Organization website?

In the web world a good website design and development are critical and sometimes with a quick browse and search we can detect some amazing “things” about some companies , the technology they use and the “big” web design and development mistakes. and in 2013 we still see big mistakes in websites development!
For example Saudi railways organizations (SRO) [1] portal amazingly has as its main webpage (the index.html) webpage, a page dedicated to oracle application server http://www.saudirailways.org/index.html [2]( in spanish, i’m wondering if the website was developed by any spanish company… see below) while for the SRO customers to access SRO train’s information they have to do it in a very long web link http://www.saudirailways.org/portal/page/portal/PRTS/root [3]
I would suggest SRO web master to put this second web link as the index webpage and remove the current index.html with the oracle information, this would improve the web portal usability a lot!… also it’s a good information for oracle competitors, hackers and so on, now everyone knows that quite for sure SRO is using oracle technology…
