Oracle Application Express (APEX) Review

Stable, easy to set up, and easy to use

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use is to develop secure applications for the Oracle Database. It is like an administrator for data processing functions.

How has it helped my organization?

This product allows us to manage our data processing using simple screens.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ease of use.

The user interface is not complex.

What needs improvement?

Workflow capabilities should be added.

Better connection and integration with non-Oracle databases is needed.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Oracle APEX for the past four to five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not had a problem where it has crashed. However, it may be that our application is not complex enough.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have approximately eight people using Oracle APEX. At this point, we are trying to reduce our usage.

How are customer service and technical support?

I have not personally been in contact with technical support.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did use another similar product before implementing APEX.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is not very complex. Our deployment took four or five months.

What about the implementation team?

A consultant assisted us with implementation and deployment.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We are currently in the process of migrating from APEX to Microsoft PowerApps.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing APEX is to use the default parameters and do not do anything that is customized.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
