"You don't have to know a lot of PL because it's built on PL/SQL. You don't need developers. You only need to design a good application that resolves a problem, or many problems, for companies and you're ready to go."
"It has many ready modules that can be used and developed."
"Oracle Application Express is easy to use, people don't have to be developers to use it."
"One of the most valuable features is the ability to build very fast data-driven UIs."
"One of the most valuable features is that we can develop everything locally and deploy it for different kinds of operators in different locations, so we can do our job in one piece. The benefit of that is that others can use these applications. They connect to the internet to do these kinds of applications based on the permissions for those users."
"Intuitive with a user-friendly UI."
"The solution's most valuable aspect is its Graphics Form Design."
"The keyword search helps me in finding stuff quickly. So, I don't have to click around a lot."
"The solution is easy to use."
"The reporting capabilities are pretty user-friendly."
"It is very modular in approach. It is very light, and it can be used on various devices. It could be used on an Android phone or a laptop, which makes it good for the sales team on the road."
"The product is pretty responsive."
"A fully integrated solution that provides a seamless experience."
"The solution provides a preferred method of backing up data."
"We used it for providing a 360 view of the customers from within Salesforce. So, a lot of data got presented there, for which we used Einstein Analytics. The Einstein Analytics dashboards were really great."
"Connecting with Oracle and the relation with Oracle at the database as a procedure needs improvement."
"The collaboration and the workflow engine could use some improvement."
"I don't like the URL syntax."
"There is not a lot of Wiki help or in Google, but there is some."
"Currently, APEX doesn't have a building workflow engine. I think that's the most important improvement that could be made at this point."
"Fixing bugs is difficult because of how the HTML code is generated. It is not always broadly compatible with browsers."
"Maybe there are other technologies that offer what APEX cannot."
"Salesforce is a pretty cumbersome product. It's a product that you need to spend quite a bit of time customizing to your unique business model. Unless you have somebody in house that knows it really well, you're better off spending money with a consultant to get what you need."
"Pricing is the biggest factor. The cost right now is too high and I've had a lot of clients leave."
"The reporting functionality is not very intuitive."
"Salesforce Platform could improve the UI and the responsiveness of their servers. The UI needs to be made user-friendly for all users."
"Reporting could be better. Reporting is Excel-based, and it has sucked since the inception of the company. That's why I was excited about the fact of them bringing MuleSoft into the fold and Tableau."
"It would be better if they can add more from the pricing and functionality perspective. It is very expensive. I would be more than happy if they drop the prices. From the licensing perspective, if they can add more functionality, I would be more than happy."
"Sometimes what will happen is we work on it and then we move to a different tab and work on something else. After five minutes, when we come back, it automatically signs out."
"The integration of Salesforce with other solutions could be improved."
