"Hepart AG has been using Oracle Application Express since 2005. We discovered, at that time, that Oracle Forms is no longer the right tool to get customers working with us via the Internet. We have developed applications with APEX for our customers to send us information about patients, case histories and laboratory results. Our customers are doctors, therapists, hospitals, and health centers. We are happy to be able to meet the customer requirements. We were able to achieve this with a very small development team of 3 people. Thank You Oracle for this great tool." -- Michael Geisler - Leader of IT, Hepart AG
"pharmasol has built its leading commercial software application, psiXchange, using Oracle Application Express.
psiXchange was developed to automate complex distribution processes and is being used by our customers in the life sciences industry. Although applicable for any document type, the main usage to now has been for the distribution of critical safety documents according to various local legislations, reducing manual efforts, increasing compliance and cutting costs.
The lean infrastructure and tight integration into the Oracle Database allows us to provision psiXchange in a SaaS Setup and guarantees good performance for the intense processing associated with this type of application, which is merging millions of data points together to trigger decisions" -- Torsten Adam - Chief Executive Officer, pharmasol
"We (SATLOG GmbH - Fleet Management + Telematics) started our Fleet Management service in 2000 on Oracle WebDB, then we used Oracle Portal until 2012, and finally we migrated to Oracle Application Express 4.2. Currently we are upgrading to APEX 5.0 to use the great REST Web Services and the Responsive Universal Theme for mobile applications. We and our customers are extremely satisfied with this framework. We have a deep integration of here/Navteq maps into APEX and can provide truck locations on digital maps, either on desktop or on smartphones, thanks to the responsiveness of the APEX templates. This is very important to the fleet manager. As well we can customize our cloud applications to each customers corporate look-and-feel very easily. The different interactive reports are important to avoid information overload and tailor the performance figures to the customer needs. By using REST services integrated in APEX, we are now able to connect an automatic route optimization system to our cloud solution. We can now send orders from the Cloud-Server to our new rugged 7 inch or 5 inch Truck Tablets right into the truck. This is possible due to the JSON format generated by APEX which allows us to give each truck driver the view of the data he needs. Oracle Application Express 5 is exactly the framework the telematics industry needs." -- Dr. Juergen Stausberg - Managing Director, SATLOG GmbH - Fleet Management + Telematics
"We (Collège Bois-de-Boulogne) are very satisfied with Oracle Application Express (APEX).

Oracle Application Express is a quick, powerful, and mature development tool that allowed us to improve our productivity level." -- Georges-Martin Caron - IT and Technology Project Manager – Coordinator of the Information Systems, Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières
"We started using Oracle Application Express 4.1 at Cavanti Corporation in April 2012 as our primary development tool. We selected Oracle Application Express (APEX) to enable us to quickly build web applications utilizing our existing Oracle and PL/SQL skill sets. Oracle APEX enabled us to build a cloud-based application that allows veterinarians and animal chiropractors to manage their cases, billing and scheduling on desktop and mobile devices. This application is currently used by customers in 21 countries.
Oracle APEX enables us to develop and deploy secure, responsive web solutions in a timeframe which would not be possible with an alternative development tool." -- Gemma Wood - Co-founder, Cavanti Corporation

Oracle Application Express is definitely one of the best tools we have today for rapid Web application development." -- Rani Bravdo - Head of Applications Development Section, Weizmann Institute of Science
"Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD) is the main water supplier in Silicon Valley. We have used Oracle technologies to create the majority of our custom applications. Beginning in 1999, we used Oracle Forms and Reports to develop more than 20 large Oracle Forms applications covering different business areas: parcel revenue, permits, records management, risk management, water conservation, stream management, real estate, and many others.
In 2012 we made the decision to start using Oracle Application Express (APEX) as our main development technology, and the last two years confirmed that it was absolutely the correct decision. In just two years, we put into production three large APEX applications for real estate, stream management and water conservation, as well as several small ones.
Although you can’t convert Oracle Forms to APEX automatically, you can reuse the database design and PL/SQL packages. The APEX interface brings new quality and was easily accepted by our customers. Plus, you can easily integrate APEX and Forms together in the case when there are not enough resources to rewrite Forms.
We love Oracle Application Express. It is a powerful and rapid development technology that can address both departmental and enterprise- level applications." -- Vitaliy Vaysfeld - Information Systems Analyst III, Santa Clara Valley Water District
"Municipal Gas Authority of Georgia has been using APEX since version 3.0 in 2007. I have found it to be the fastest way to develop internal business applications that are both durable and scalable. A database programmer with very limited exposure to web-based programming languages can produce significant output as an APEX developer. For over a decade, Oracle has demonstrated its continued commitment to APEX by releasing progressive versions that have kept APEX's look-and-feel relevant in a world of constant change. I can confidently say that we will be using APEX into the distant future here at the Gas Authority. And I look forward to future APEX releases that will continue to provide efficient ways to develop web-based, database applications." -- Scott von Kamecke - Senior Oracle Applications Developer, Municipal Gas Authority of Georgia

One application in particular, our Actionable Intelligence faculty portal, has been critical to the University’s award-winning success in improving our student retention and success rates, but that’s not all we’ve done with APEX. We have developed more than 100 other applications in support of our campus, some of which receive thousands of page views per day. Application Express is powerful, flexible, and easy to use. In my opinion, there is no better tool for enterprise-level rapid application development!" -- Arthur Rinberger - Applications Coordinator, Enterprise Applications and Analytics, Valdosta State University
"CROATIA insurance has been developing/maintaining our own core insurance system on Oracle technology (Designer/Headstart/Forms/Reports) for many years. We needed a technology replacement in order to support new business needs, and we evaluated different technology options from Oracle, Microsoft and Adobe. Although Oracle Application Express was not considered among favorites when we started the evaluation, during the evaluation, the local Oracle partner BiLog demonstrated all the benefits of different usages of APEX, resulting in a clear technology winner for replacing legacy systems at CROATIA insurance. Almost all of the front--end applications of our core insurance system are now based on Oracle APEX, which has enabled us to not only replace legacy systems but also significantly enhance required business functionality." -- Filip Ujevic - Director of Information Technology and Business Digitalization Division, CROATIA insurance
"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
