Oracle APEX: Do You Know What You’re Missing?

Jul 24, 2019

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again… “If you’re data is stored in Oracle, you should be developing applications using APEX!!”

Technology is in a constant state of change. What’s new today will be seen as “old” in just a few years.

There was a time when platform vendors such as Oracle, Sybase, and Ingress provided customers with development tools with built-in “plumbing” to handle security, concurrency, and transaction recovery. With the advent of Java and Open Source programming environments and a move toward vendor agnostic programming styles, the “plumbing” requirements became a complex part of application development projects.

One key frustration that business leaders have is the time it takes to deliver applications that solve business issues. Enter Oracle APEX…

The primary goal for the Oracle APEX product team was to provide Oracle database customers with a fast, easy, full-featured, and portable development tool for creating applications against their Oracle data. Spend less time coding and more time delivering solutions for your business.

Why Oracle APEX?


If you already know SQL and Oracle PL/SQL, you will quickly learn how to use the APEX Application Builder to develop rich, browser-based applications through an intuitive interface. You don’t even need to know HTML, CSS, or JavaScript to build elegant browser based applications!

Better still, all of the code needed to maintain the “plumbing” is managed for you. Complex, time consuming, and error-prone code needed to manage security, session state, locking/concurrency, data persistence, and more are taken care of for you. Your time is spent focusing on the business requirements instead.


Oracle APEX provides a scalable and proven platform for enterprise applications. Integrate data from a variety of sources – your local database, a remote Oracle database or from any web service.

Need a “mobile friendly” application? The Universal Theme UI has been designed to work on any screen – large or small. Easily integrate touch gestures or use mobile-optimized UI patterns for navigation, page layouts, and more.


Oracle APEX was designed to be highly secure from the start. With its close integration with the Oracle database, you applications and data will stay protected with a state-of-the-art security infrastructure.


Wherever your Oracle Database runs… you can deploy your Oracle APEX applications. Cloud, on-prem, hybrid infrastructure… it doesn’t matter!

Cost of Ownership

How does “free” sound? Ok, maybe not free but it is INCLUDED with any Oracle database license you have purchased. Better yet, your APEX browser based application does NOT require any costly application server tier such as WebLogic.

In terms of cost of ownership, the huge advantage of an easy to learn, simple to deploy, rapid application development tool represents significant productivity and responsiveness benefits to any business.
