Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Application Express

We have an APEX application that serves the entire research administration organization across the UC Berkeley campus. Contracts and grants funding projections are created in APEX. The application pulls data from our HR system, to assist users with creating accurate projections. It automatically calculates benefits on personnel and indirect cost recovery. It saves TONS of time over the Excel projection models of the past. The data is viewable instantly in OBIEE reports.
  • Allow you to use data from your Oracle Database to pre-fill forms or reports.
  • It allows you to write data back to the Oracle Database.
  • It is extremely fast! We have over 100 concurrent users in our APEX application and never get complaints about performance.
  • It is highly configurable and can be used to create all kinds of different applications.
  • You can only use APEX if you own Oracle Database.
  • We were able to reduce our research administration organization by 8 FTE when we implemented the APEX projection system to replace manual Excel work.
  • APEX enabled the campus to standardize the creation of research spending projections based on HR data.
  • APEX allows reporting users to view updated projections in real time.
Yes - I am a member of the ODTUG.

Very positive impact. I have learned so much more about what APEX can do by seeing what other ODTUG members have created.
If you use Oracle Database and want to create an application that uses your data, this is a free development tool and it's amazing what it can do.
