Application Express APEX
Oracle Enterprise Low Code Application Platform *
November 12 and February 11 events will cover APEX**

* Gartner research reports:
    By 2024, low-code application development will be responsible for more than 65% of application development activity.
    By 2024, three-quarters of large enterprises will be using at least four low-code development tools for both IT application development and citizen development initiatives.
**    Here are some facts/benefits about APEX:

APEX has been in existence since 2004 and a is a leader in Low Code Development Platform

APEX Is a no cost feature of the Oracle database (both on-prem and Autonomous). This means that if you have an Oracle database, you already have APEX. NO additional licenses are required and no additional hardware/software is required other than a web browser.

APEX is enterprise ready and secure on day 1, and with Autonomous, APEX is easily scalable using ML and Oracle manages the DB for you with automatic patching.

APEX is easy to learn—individuals without any IT experience can build an app in minutes. You don’t need specialized skills to build apps. If you do happen to know some SQL and simple HTML, you can perform many customizations on APEX, but this is NOT required.

APEX comes with prepackaged productivity apps in the App Gallery, such as calendars, ticketing, and polling apps, which are ready to go in a few minutes.

Organizations use APEX to extend out commercial software to fill gaps, such as with EBS applications and HCM applications used by millions of users and page views.

Very large, well-recognized customers are using APEX within in their organization.
