Oracle Application Express (APEX) Review

Easy to make a user-friendly interface and is quite stable

What is our primary use case?

We make software for municipals.

What is most valuable?

It's fairly easy to make a user-friendly interface. 

What needs improvement?

It has a bit of a strict framework, you have to make all the time adjustments in their JavaScript. Another downside is that it's only available for Oracle databases.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been working with Oracle APEX for a year now. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It is quite stable. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability will depend on your database. 

How are customer service and technical support?

I don't have any experience with their support. 

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

As a developer, I used to work with Delphix which was a little different. 

How was the initial setup?

The installation is quite difficult. Because somehow it doesn't work if you begin with a clean installation. It's much easier to use it with the cloud setup or do a box. If you want to install it from scratch, then it's a bit difficult.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Oracle is very expensive. Too expensive in my opinion.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to someone considering this solution is to look into older applications. 

I would rate Oracle APEX an eight out of ten.
