Oracle APEX refers to Oracle Application Express (APEX), which is a fully supported, rapid web and mobile application development framework included with the Oracle database at no cost.
Using just a web browser, you can build powerful and professional looking web and mobile applications that are robust, scalable, and secure, all with little programming experience. And, with its “batteries included” approach, where all the underlying complexities inherent in building and deploying web and mobile applications are taken care of for you, combined with the many wizards, built-in components, themes, and templates available to use “out of the box”, you can build and deploy applications blazingly fast.
Because it will enable you to get more done in less time.
The digital economy is not kind to those who move slowly. With technology based business models becoming the norm across a broad range of industries, whether a company “lives or dies” is increasingly becoming dependent on shortening time-to-market and responding quickly to shifting customer expectations. Organizations need to both adapt quickly and iterate quickly to keep up, and this is exactly where APEX shines.
As a growing number of organizations discover how simple and easy it is to build highly functional web and mobile applications using this deceptively powerful tool, it’s no wonder that the popularity of APEX has shot up in the last few years. Both business and IT leaders are starting to take notice as an increasing number of organizations leverage the productivity APEX provides to deploy applications very quickly and with a very impressive ROI.
“APEX is a great product that lets us teach application development with an Oracle database, including Web development concepts. The pace of development is good and our students already have a good understanding of APEX after 75 hours of training.” –Guylaine Turmel, Enseignante, Cégep de Trois-Rivières
“UQTR has been using Oracle PL/SQL to develop most of its internal and public systems on the Web platform (e.g., student portal) for nearly 20 years. We’ve also integrated APEX into our development and are extremely satisfied. Thanks to APEX, we’ve boosted our productivity.” -Georges-Martin Caron, IT and Technology Project Manager, Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières
