"One important goal for us over this year is the need to support multiple platforms and devices including Macs, iPads and iPhones. Application Express 4.2 will allow us to develop an application once and deploy it to all these devices by incorporating ‘Responsive Design’ in the templates that automatically scale from the largest monitors to the iPad in landscape mode. Application Express achieves all this using industry standard responsive grids, mobile libraries and charting tools that work on all the platforms."
-- Sayee Natarajan, Director of Sales Systems, Purdue Pharma
"We at the Brunswick Boat Group are very excited about Application Express 4.2. Our quality control application (QCIS) was written in Application Express to replace a software package costing $60,000 a year. Since delivering our Application Express application we have received rave reviews for its functional richness including the use of image maps. The only complaint is that our users currently have to work off Toughbooks. Application Express 4.2 will enable us to deliver QCIS on iPads which will be far easier and more productive for our users, especially as they can utilize features such as touch and tap."
-- Tony Bowers, Senior Systems Analyst, Brunswick Boat Group

Oracle Application Express is a tool that is highly proliferated throughout our enterprise, and continues to be the tool of choice as we are presented with new business challenges."

"At Northgate Revenues & Benefits, we have used APEX to replace our legacy Oracle Forms system comprising around 1500 Forms. Our user interface has 10,000 end users daily, across 172 clients, who this year sent out over 12 million Council Tax annual bills worth Â£15billion and will pay out benefits of over Â£13billion. Our clients now experience, on average, sub second response times across a working day. We are continuing to leverage our investment in Oracle Application Express by delivering citizen facing solutions as well as launching the conversion of our Social Housing application which will replace 3,500 Oracle Forms running at 100 clients worldwide, with a total of 15,000 end users managing circa 3,000,000 properties. Oracle Application Express has helped us to make the move away from Oracle Forms whilst delivering benefits to our clients and our business."
