Oracle Application Express (APEX) is now generally available on Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud. The enormous benefits of a fully-managed and autonomous database cloud service, combined with an industry-leading low code platform to quickly develop and deploy applications, offers customers unparalleled capabilities.
Oracle Application Express (APEX) is a low-code development platform that enables you to build scalable and secure enterprise applications with world-class features that can be deployed anywhere.
Oracle APEX provides you with an easy-to-use browser-based environment to load data, manage database objects, develop REST interfaces, and build applications which look and run great on both desktop and mobile devices. You can use Oracle APEX to develop a wide variety of solutions: import spreadsheets and develop a single source of truth in minutes, create compelling reports and data visualizations, deploy productivity applications to elegantly solve a business need, or build mission-critical data management applications.
Oracle APEX embraces SQL. Anything you can express with SQL can be easily employed in an Oracle APEX application. Oracle APEX also embodies low code with powerful data management and data visualization components, as well as responsive development out of the box. Instead of writing code by hand, you are able to use intelligent wizards to guide you through the rapid creation of applications and components.
Oracle Autonomous Database brings together decades of database automation, decades of automating database infrastructure, and new technology in the cloud to deliver a fully autonomous database. Oracle Autonomous Database provides a self-driving, self-securing, self-repairing cloud service that eliminates the overhead and human errors associated with traditional database administration. Oracle Autonomous Database takes care of configuration, tuning, backup, patching, encryption, scaling, and more. And Autonomous Database uses machine learning and automation to eliminate complexity, human error, and manual management, helping to ensure higher reliability, security, and more operational efficiency.
Autonomous Database is available exclusively through Oracle and is offered in two versions optimized to meet the specialized requirements for Online Transaction Processing and Data Warehousing. Autonomous Transaction Processing supports a complex mix of high-performance transactions, reporting, batch, IoT, and machine learning in a single database, allowing much simpler application development and deployment and enabling real-time analytics. Autonomous Data Warehouse delivers unprecedented reliability, performance, and highly elastic data management that enables data warehouse deployment in seconds.
Oracle APEX on Autonomous Database provides a preconfigured, fully managed and secured environment to both build and deploy world-class data-centric applications. There are no limits on the number of developers or end users for your Oracle APEX applications; Autonomous Database can instantly scale compute and storage online as needed, based upon your workload. Additionally, Oracle APEX applications developed on-premises can be easily deployed to Oracle APEX on Autonomous Database, or vice-versa.
Configuration, patching, monitoring, and upgrading of all Oracle Application Express components is fully managed by Oracle, leaving you free to focus on developing your solutions and solving your business problems. With Oracle APEX and low code, your organization can be more agile and develop solutions faster, for less cost, and with greater consistency. You can adapt to changing requirements with ease. And you can empower professional developers and everyone else in your organization to be a part of the solution.
