Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Application Express

Oracle APEX is used throughout the company on different levels. Within the company, APEX is used as a back-office management system, like registration of hours and billing. But also as a communication tool: the company news is spread through an APEX application. APEX is also used as one of the main tools to develop applications for our customers.
  • APEX is incorporated in the database, which gives it better performance then other tools.
  • Fast in implementing changes.
  • Out-of-the-box responsive applications thanks to the universal theme.
  • When you have an highly customized application upgrading can be a pain.
  • Single page applications are hard to build.
  • The time to market has improved significantly.
APEX is data-centric. When you have a data-driven company with large data flows, APEX is a great choice. Because APEX is installed directly in the database, the data is always available. The Universal Theme allows you to make responsive applications without the need to write extra code. So users can access the data even their phones/tablets when they're on location. Applications build with APEX are most of the times multi-page applications. Today single-page applications (SSA) are more popular. Building an SSA can be quite difficult with APEX.
