Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"This is a good application for quickly creating public applications.""Oracle APEX improved our organization by making it possible for us to implement agile project development.""The most valuable feature is the ease of use.""One of the most valuable features is that we can develop everything locally and deploy it for different kinds of operators in different locations, so we can do our job in one piece. The benefit of that is that others can use these applications. They connect to the internet to do these kinds of applications based on the permissions for those users.""I like the way that it automatically goes into the spreadsheets and the users can deal with it.""It's fairly easy to make a user-friendly interface.""Efficient software delivery and a solution that works quickly.""The most valuable features are security, stability, and ease of implementation."

Cons
"Currently, APEX doesn't have a building workflow engine. I think that's the most important improvement that could be made at this point.""It has been reported that the technology is very hard to learn, and the service is expensive.""The solution has some stability problems that need to be resolved.""Better connection and integration with non-Oracle databases is needed.""Visual Builder and APEX should meld in one product.""The collaboration and the workflow engine could use some improvement.""Connecting with Oracle and the relation with Oracle at the database as a procedure needs improvement.""Connections to the application pages are not handled well and at times more than one user can be accessing an application with the same ID."

Pricing and Cost Advice

There's no license required for developing Oracle applications.""When buying the data license, APEX is included.""There is a trial version available that can be used free of charge.""Pricing is expensive, overall on an enterprise system but we consider that it gives corresponding value in the product.""It's a free solution with no additional costs."
