Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Application Express

Oracle Application Express is the best solution for most customers I was working with over the last couple of years. If you need to create fast and intuitive applications for creating, editing or manipulating data in your Oracle Database - APEX is your tool to go with! Inside our consulting company, we're using APEX for vacation requests, travel requests and some service applications.
  • Rapid prototyping enables us to develop very fast.
  • Low code allows us to create applications in a declarative way without too much code written.
  • It's free!
  • You need to find ways to fulfill special customer requests that are not built in and a little bit more complex.
  • You need to have a running Oracle Database (possibly licensed if not XE).
  • We've had a great ROI. Almost no software costs besides our existing database.
  • Fast development with very little man power.
Yes - I am a member of the ODTUG.

The APEX user groups around the world are more than just 'there'. I'm actively contributing to ODTUG and DOAG and so are many many other people! If you need help - you get help from the community. This is by far the best community I've been involved in during my career.
Oracle Application Express isn't just a CMS or similar software. You have a metadata-driven data model and a very data-near architecture. It is intuitive to use and you are able to get an application up and running in no-time. Many existing components are allowing you to create rich applications that you don't necessarily need to extend with plugins etc.
Oracle Application Express is well suited if you have a big dataset which has to be visualized in a graphic manner or if you have to provide a good solution to create, edit or manipulate data by end-users in a web-application. It is also well suited if you need to create KPIs that might already be in place and they just have to be brought to the surface in the browser!
