Overall Satisfaction with Oracle Application Express

Oracle Application Express is used across the whole organization. We have a lot of simple report applications we use it for (A translation app, an administration app, and a lot more).
  • Easy to learn and to understand.
  • Low code. You can create really fast reports with just " SELECT * FROM TABLE".
  • People can work on reports simultaneously.
  • In Excel, you have to send the file via mail to other people and only one person can work it. Sometimes there are more than one version of this file. With Oracle, this does not happen.
  • Sorry but there are still no cons!
  • When a department gets in touch with Oracle Application Express, they love it and they have a lot of business cases & applications they want it for.
  • The development speed is incredible.
Oracle Application Express is great for small applications, where you have a few pages. You upload an excel file, create a interactive grid, create user authorization and everybody can work on this grid. You can develop an application in hours or a few days.

I think it's less appropriate when a customer has a lot of special front-end wishes. In this case, it would be better to start with Angular and generate the front-end all manually.
