Oracle Forms Review

A solution that offers very good performance, with an easy setup and good stability

What is most valuable?

The libraries and packages are all valuable aspects of the solution, as well as form building, and built-in core features.

Overall, the performance of the solution is very good.

What needs improvement?

The GUI needs improvement. 

The solution needs to add recording features that can be included on the fly in the forms.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using the solution for seven years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is very stable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's not scalable as a central product. It's a client tool, so you install it on your computer to add a development framework and you develop forms from that tool. After that, you can publish all these applications through the application server. It's not about serving a certain number of users. There is no limit because you just have to install it on each machine.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is good.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is very straightforward. It's quite easy.

What about the implementation team?

Users should be able to implement the solution themselves.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises deployment model.

My advice for others considering implementation is that you have to do some programming for mobile to ensure your forms will be following good practice and your code will be usable.

I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.
