Oracle APEX has been used to successfully provide solutions for real business problems across industries and geographies. Here are just a few stories on how a diverse group of customers have used APEX to solve a myriad of business problems.
DB Systel GmbH
Deutsche Bahn Systel GmbH Finds Oracle APEX Key to Their Agile Success
DB Systel GmbH, the internal ICT solutions provider for the Deutsche Bahn group (over 300,000 employees, 4,348 million passengers), founded in 2011 a new department called 'Small Solutions'.
Small Solutions uses an agile and customer-centric approach in combination with the technology platform, Oracle Application Express (APEX), to provide fast and cost-efficient solutions. Today, we serve almost all divisions of Deutsche Bahn and can rely upon experience of over 400 projects with a high customer satisfaction.
Oracle APEX is a key success factor because it provides an excellent fit to our approach, and in our opinion there is currently no toolset which can compete to match our requirements. We use it for a broad range of applications, starting from interaction and feedback tools with high user-traffic to more complex solutions for railway-specific topics.

Larger Than Life
Larger Than Life Leverages Cloud Services to Run Efficient Manufacturing Process
Larger Than Life is a large-format printing company, specializing in a variety of complex printing solutions for billboards, banners, vehicle wraps, and other printed advertising mediums. The challenge has been to meet and exceed our customer’s expectations with technology solutions that are on par with what we do in the print shop.
In 2015, Larger Than Life turned to Oracle APEX and the Oracle Cloud to accomplish this. In less than 20 months, with an IT team of 3, we were able to replace the entire legacy ERP system used for all order management and manufacturing. We added an online customer portal for customers and mobile sales reps to enter their own orders and check on shipping status. Additionally, the entire manufacturing process is now on mobile devices, thanks to responsive screens easily developed in Oracle Application Express.
Oracle APEX allowed us to leverage our Oracle Database and PL/SQL skill set to rapidly build and deploy a secure system in the Oracle Cloud, that is easily accessed from anywhere in the world, by Larger Than Life employees and our customers.

Ankabut - United Arab Emirates’ Advanced National Research and Education Network (NREN)
Ankubut Utilizes Oracle APEX to Build Enterprise Apps Serving Students and Staff
At Ankabut we have found that Oracle Application Express plays an excellent role in building enterprise applications.
Today we have over 16 production applications built on top of Oracle APEX technology. It is used in our back-office systems for managing our members' unified attendance, grade book application, student and staff service desk, project management and many educational and operational applications integrated with student information and ERP systems.

Nokomis Delivers in 9 Months to Identify Claim Savings and Overpayments
Nokomis Health is a medical claim review company. We used Oracle Application Express (APEX), Oracle Database Release 12cR1 and Oracle Advanced Security to build ClaimWise, which is our HIPAA compliant application and rules-based engine.
ClaimWise processes millions of claims a year for our clients and enables us to quickly identify claim savings and overpayments. One of the huge benefits of choosing Oracle APEX (over .NET or other "high code" technologies) was the speed with which we could develop a modern, responsive and infinitely scalable application using a fraction of the development resources compared to other technologies.
The first version of ClaimWise was live within 9 months, with actual development taking only 6 months by two developers. A number of our other partners and clients have seen demonstrations of ClaimWise, and have been astonished at the richness in functionality and the speed with which it was built. We plan to use Oracle APEX for ongoing projects and also to develop additional products which will compliment ClaimWise.
BMI Healthcare Using Oracle APEX to Extend Their ERP and Build Bespoke Apps
At BMI Healthcare, Oracle Application Express (APEX) is used as a core development platform alongside Oracle PeopleSoft ERP, other Oracle products and non-Oracle solutions.
BMI is the UK's largest independent hospital group with 1.5 million patient visits per annum covering private patients, medically insured patients and NHS patients with 98 percent of our patients rating their overall quality of care as very good or excellent.
Whilst quality of care and clinical excellent are upper most, efficiency is also important. Since 2008, BMI have been using Oracle technology to underpin business critical applications and also to develop bespoke applications where these packages do not fully meet our business goals.
APEX is our development tool of choice for our smaller and niche bespoke applications and also some more complex and high volume applications that are vitally important to the business, with over 20 applications on the APEX platform. APEX provides BMI with a robust and cost effective rapid application development platform to create visually attractive, yet highly functional, applications much faster and more efficiently than other tools we evaluated.
There is no complex middleware and infrastructure to deploy, so coupled with the benefit that APEX is a no- cost feature of the Oracle Database, APEX helps keep our total cost of ownership as low as possible. Whilst our own developers are experts in APEX, we have worked with Explorer as our Oracle partner over the last couple of years to benefit from their flexibility and expertise to accelerate our use of APEX and assist us with other Oracle products.

Evry is the Nordic region's second-largest IT services company. It has large groups of customers in the banking and finance, public sector, healthcare, oil and gas, and process and manufacturing industries. Evry has historically to a large extent worked with management of its customers’ IT operations. But today an increasing part of the business is focused on the development of applications for customers.
"We have very good experiences with Oracle Database Cloud Service and its web development tool Oracle Application Express. The solution has helped us to reduce development time and development costs by 50%, which has opened a large new market for us, consisting of small and medium-sized enterprises."
Oracle Application Express enabled development of advanced, customized, and scalable applications for mobile devices and desktop computers. Previously such solutions were almost impossible to create, in part because it had been too expensive and time-consuming.
BoligPartner Improves Processes on the Construction Site
Bolig Partners builds architectural-designed houses, cabins, and multi-family homes in Norway.
They have a small IT department and were looking to improve processes on their construction sites. Specifically they used partner Evry to build a mobile application that helps to secure paperless quality control on their construction sites, replacing a paper-based system, saving time that previously was used on activation and administrative work.
They implemented Oracle APEX in the Oracle Database Cloud service. Now all of their project managers use the intuitive app to take pictures and mark off checkpoints during the building process, which has led to much better project control and documentation.

The volunteer centers are local meeting places for individuals, teams / associations and the public. The centers are found throughout the country and aim to reach many broad layers of the population.
