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.

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.

Currently, APEX doesn't have a building workflow engine. I think that's the most important improvement that could be made at this point.
