Young Enterprise is a UK charity focusing on enterprise, business, and financial education for young people. Their aim is to build successful and sustainable futures and reduce youth unemployment. Since its inception in 1962, they have engaged over 4 million young people, working with 57% of secondary schools in the 30% most deprived areas of the UK.


The Challenge

Young Enterprise had 22 APEX applications across various business functions, some of which were no longer required. Many also had duplicate functionalities but existed as separate applications. Furthermore, these applications were run on an unsupported Oracle database on dated servers. Therefore, Young Enterprise wanted to modernise and consolidate their application estate and were looking for an Oracle APEX expert to help them achieve this.

The Solution

Young Enterprise selected DSP to assist them in moving to a new host platform architecture in the cloud consisting of multiple environments for development, testing, and production. They worked to define and build a new data model that satisfies the requirements to store the current consolidated data where it is needed, and any new data required. 

They also helped consolidate and refactor the functionality of the existing APEX applications into one single 'Office Admin' application for the whole organisation and remove the large degree of redundancy and repetition present in the current suite of APEX applications.

The Result

The new APEX application went live in October 2022, running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) with an SE license included, which is now fully supported. Young Enterprise now has a streamlined and consolidated application environment, better suited to enable them to carry out their valuable work. 

Added Value

Modernisation and Consolidation

DSP successfully modernised and consolidated Young Enterprise's application estate, removing a significant amount of redundancy and repetition that existed previously.
