If you are looking for a huge boost in functionality and productivity for your business, then an upgrade to Oracle APEX could be the answer. Joel Kallman, Senior Director of Software Development at Oracle tells us that, “Oracle Application Express 5.1 is a great leap forward in end-user productivity.” The great promise of automation for any business is the idea of a quick, smooth process. This is very important for developers whose productivity is hugely boosted when tech takes over the menial tasks, freeing them up to concentrate on more pressing – and more rewarding — issues.
Oracle APEX 5.1 delivers on this promise by introducing “powerful new declarative features, enabling you to develop, design and deploy beautiful, responsive, database-driven desktop and mobile applications using only a browser.” Everyone loves an easy-to-use solution that helps them do more, quicker.
4 Great reasons to upgrade your Oracle
If you’re looking for ways to improve your business, these new features are just some of the reasons to upgrade:
- Say goodbye to spreadsheets
By combining Tabular Forms and Interactive Report, the new Interactive Grid (IG) gives you all the features you need for effective reporting like scroll pagination, user-friendly grid-based editing, Oracle Text support, fixed headers, frozen columns, multiple filters, sorting and aggregates. This feature provides outstanding keyboard support allowing users to easily edit data.
- Cut down on mouse movement
With Oracle APEX , it is now simple to drag and drop developer tabs, customising their position and putting them where you can access them easily. On a large monitor, this translates into less mouse movement and reduced eye strain. A two pane mode is now supported in Page Designer, so you can focus on two panes at a time. Ultimately, these advancements mean higher developer productivity.
- Instant cross platform functionality
- Quick refresh saves time
