Oracle Forms to APEX Consultants
Oracle Forms was developed in a legacy world and with accelerating digital transformation, now is the time to consider the present, and future, of Oracle Database Development – APEX.
Why continue to pay support for Oracle Forms when it continues to fall behind other rapid application development tools, such as APEX?
At DSP we are extremely experienced in analysing Oracle Forms applications and helping clients build new APEX applications which leverage their existing code.
Why Oracle APEX?
Oracle APEX is the clear platform of choice for easily transitioning Oracle Forms applications to modern web apps.
The same stored procedures and PL/SQL packages work natively in APEX, making it easy to re-develop.

Oracle Forms Inspector
Get a quick and easy cost estimation using DSP's unique tool
Based on a wealth of historic Forms Redevelopment projects, we have developed our own 'Oracle Forms Inspector', which will auto-discover and estimate the investment needed to deploy APEX applications.
With the Oracle Forms Inspector, Forms are uploaded and inspected to gather statistics, such as the number of canvases, blocks, items, and lines in PL/SQL.
Statistics are then used to determine a 'low to high' Complexity rating - providing the number of development days required to migrate your Oracle Forms to APEX.
The world around Oracle Forms has changed, these are points you need to consider...
Browsers de-supporting Java
Costly support renewals to Oracle
Costly and complex operational support
Changing business models and consumption behaviour from on-premise implementations to a cloud (SaaS) mindset
An ever decreasing ‘Forms-first’ developer skillset making staff retention and new employment difficult and expensive
Oracle APEX application benefits:
A growing development pool to maintain and enhance apps
Applications based upon web services, data sources or API's
Apps to work on desktops, tablets, and smartphones
Deployment to external partners and customers
Simple web apps that everyone can use
Why APEX is the best Oracle Forms alternative?
Both built from tables up, not from UI down
Both are designed to quickly build apps based on table definitions
Business logic implemented in the database can be called from either
Both are database-centric, SQL and PL/SQL based
Features like real application cluster, high availability, and security
You can have fully productive APEX developers in weeks not months
There is no need to rewrite business logic already in the database
You can have both running the same database and objects
It runs on any Oracle database — on premise or in the cloud
You can build modern Web apps your end users will love to use

"Selecting a company like DSP is the best option as you receive a tailored database service. Generalists are not focused on the aspects required.”

"We live and breathe this every day but it was really impressive how quickly DSP got on board with our systems and processes in order to start delivering results from the outset."
Head of Infrastructure | Zopa
"Our relationship now is so much more than just client-and-supplier; it is a genuine partnership. It’s more valuable to us as it means we grow and develop as an organisation while working with DSP."
