    [Azure DevOps Services (formerly VSTS)] is well suited for agile teams. It is a digital kanban for teams to access anywhere at any time. Especially during covid when most companies are still remote, it allows teams to fully perform and still be functional in operating within an agile methodology. It also gives visibility to teams capacity.

    Oracle

    It is appropriate for database application development supporting data driven processes, online transaction processing, BI/reports/analytics ... for addressing about any business data processing need I can think of. Oracle Application Express is fantastic for creating beautiful rich user interfaces with support for all major browsers rendering well on a range of devices. It is less appropriate for applications requiring native low level access to device peripherals and is less appropriate for applications that must execute offline without network/internet connection to supporting application and database servers.

    Pros

    Microsoft

    • Flexible Requirements Hierarchy Management: AZDO makes it easy to track items such as features or epics as a flat list, or as a hierarchy in which you can track the parent-child relationship.
    • Fast Data Entry: AZDO was designed to facilitate quick data entry to capture work items quickly, while still enabling detailed capture of acceptance criteria and item properties.
    • Excel Integration: AZDO stands out for its integration with MS Excel, which enables quick updates for bulk items.

    Oracle

    • Easy upgrade path from Forms, allowing reuse of code and a low learning curve for Forms developers.
    • Very quick to develop in. Ideal for prototyping or iterative development which is how we usually work.
    • Comes with cross browser and mobile compatibility out of the box.
    • Easy to incorporate other web technologies.
    • Development environment runs straight from a browser. This has proved to be a life saver when issues crop up on a weekend.

    Cons

    Microsoft

    • Column sorting when in filtered states.
    • A way to show cross-team dependencies.
    • A customized "From" field for notifications. Sometimes when a mail comes from Azure DevOps the teams do not realize that I am sending it
    • A way to do online poker that doesn't require a plug-in.

    Oracle

    • Perhaps is our problem, since we haven’t explored it deeply, but I think that a better portability to mobile devices would help the adoption of APEX.
    • Applications weren’t as light as we thought, and we had to move the APEX server to the same data center where our data base was running, due to performance issues. When we started, we supposed that that situation would not be an issue.
    • At least in Argentina and Brazil, you can not find as many programmers with experience in APEX as you can find with other technologies.

    I don't think our organization will stray from using VSTS/TFS as we are now looking to upgrade to the 2012 version. Since our business is software development and we want to meet the requirements of CMMI to deliver consistent and high quality software, this SDLC management tool is here to stay. In addition, our company uses a lot of Microsoft products, such as Office 365, Asp.net, etc, and since VSTS/TFS has proved itself invaluable to our own processes and is within the Microsoft family of products, we will continue to use VSTS/TFS for a long, long time.

    I felt very comfortable using Oracle Application Express from the start. I designed my data model and quickly developed the basic CRUD pages for master tables. Then I designed the main functionality and was able to test and deploy it in a couple of days work. I will probably share the app with other members of the team and continue adding some features in the short term.

    Usability

    Microsoft

    Azure DevOps is a powerful, complex cloud application. As such there are a number of things it does great and something where there is room for improvement. One of those areas would be in usability. In my opinion it relies too much on search. There is no easy way to view all projects or to group them in a logical way. You need to search for everything.

    Oracle

    its easy to use as a developer and applications designed using apex are easy and intuitive to use as an end user. Even non-coders can build good applications, the more code you can write the more you can enhance the application but you can get up and running quickly with almost no technical know how.

    Support Rating

    Microsoft

    When we've had issues, both Microsoft support and the user community have been very responsive. DevOps has an active developer community and frankly, you can find most of your questions already asked and answered there. Microsoft also does a better job than most software vendors I've worked with creating detailed and frequently updated documentation.

    Very active and knowledgeable community support includes quick and helpful responses from the Oracle employees on the product development team. I've never had to raise an official support request - everything is dealt with via forums and user groups - or via direct emails. The supposrt commuinty is one of the great things about Apex.

    Using it on the cloud is really simple, the entire process of configuring and provisioning an Oracle Database takes only a few minutes (less than 10) and then Oracle APEX is already deployed on the database, so you just have to start using it. I would strongly recommend using APEX on Oracle Cloud Free Tier.

    Alternatives Considered

    Microsoft

    Azure DevOps is much easier to implement and use on a daily basis than VersionOne. This is based on end-user feedback and my personal experience as well. ADO has more features and seems to get updated more frequently than VersionOne as well. VersionOne is less expensive overall than ADO, but our company prefers to use ADO because it has a lot more benefits.

    Oracle

    Obviously Oracle Application Express cannot replace WebLogic in terms of creating domains but it is not designed to do that. We can use this tool to prototype and later develop a product using the Oracle WebLogic platform. We selected Oracle Application Express due to the ease of learning, and not having to buy licenses to use it.

    Return on Investment

    Microsoft

    • It provides a great IDE to make things easier, clear, and compact. It has always been a positive ROI
    • It's worth the money. I don't think any other software could replace the VS. It has helped us a lot to making things ready on time
    • The only thing I dislike is that it takes a lot of memory space when in an idle state

    Oracle

    • In the mid-size organization, we had a BI tool that had a significant license cost involved. With Oracle back-end we were able to switch to APEX and move all reporting at literally zero cost.
    • For Oracle PL/SQL users the learning curve is very quick and easy, there are ready templates that you can start with and eventually create complex reports.
    • You can track authorization and authentication on data editing and usage. High performance as it is native oracle sql codes.
    • Centralized data capturing, makes your datawarehouse writable for lookup tables or reference tables.
