Anonymous UserHead of Development and Implementation at a pharma/biotech company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This product will speed up development time with helpful production aids."
"It's fairly easy to make a user-friendly interface."
"Efficient software delivery and a solution that works quickly."
"The most valuable feature is the ease of use."
"This is a good application for quickly creating public applications."
"With only a browser, it is very easy to develop in a web environment."
"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."
"Zoho Creator can be integrated with other platforms easily."
"I just like the simplicity of it."
"We would like to see tighter integration with the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure."
"Being able to only design with HTML and CSS can be limiting as to what can be accomplished."
"Reporting needs to be accessed via third party tools."
"Better connection and integration with non-Oracle databases is needed."
"There is a problem with security because the applications store passwords in the configuration files."
"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."
"Fixing bugs is difficult because of how the HTML code is generated. It is not always broadly compatible with browsers."
"They should allow for more UI customization."
"When you're developing database-type applications, there is no way to see the actual database tables. They call them forms, and I don't like that. Zoho should also provide better user guides."
"APEX itslelf is a free product, but you will need to license peripheral components."
"When buying the data license, APEX is included."
"We have a full Oracle E-Business Suite license, and we use that license to develop applications. There's no license required for developing Oracle applications."
"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."
"We would prefer it if the price went down drastically."
"It is at the bottom end of the price range."

Its framework provides numerous security features out-of-the-box and helps authenticate users using LDAP, Oracle Single-signon, Oracle Database credentials, or HTTP Header variable.
