Oracle Application Express (APEX) Valuable Features

Head of Development and Implementation at a pharma/biotech company with 201-500 employees

The first feature that I think is very important is that the product is able to safely deploy on the web. You can develop any application and you can share it on the web without any installation by the end client. The second-best option in Oracle APEX is that it is very easy and very fast. You can quickly create forms and reports and in the reports feature there are a lot of options to help complete tasks. In some ways, it is the same as in Microsoft Excel. You can create charts or create almost anything that has the same features as Excel and it will be immediately available for the end client to use it.

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.

Developing based on a web-based application with APEX or another language is more simple and costly.

What I find the most valuable about Oracle APEX is that it is very fast.

Prior to Oracle APEX, we were using Oracle Developer/2000, or D2K for short. It's another RAD. RAD refers to rapid application development tool. These two tools are quite similar. So, they are very easy for us to migrate.

That's why we choose Oracle APEX. It is a very powerful tool. It has a lot of function and a lot of features that were not available in D2K. D2K is not available on mobile, for example. Oracle APEX is very convenient.

I like how we can actively develop and customize APEX because it's on the same database. We use all the E-Business Suite custom environment features in APEX. We use it because developers can fully leverage it. For example, in Oracle Application Framework, you have a download time of about half an hour before deployment. But there's no deployment time in APEX. You can see it after refreshing the page.
