APEX Consulting is a small Dutch company focused on and passionate about Oracle Application Express (APEX). We deliver solutions, consulting and training. See the following pages for more information.
APEX is a database centric rapid application development framework. The only thing you need to run an APEX application is a browser - and you can even develop using only a browser - and an Oracle database. With APEX you can declaratively build web applications for your desktop, for your mobile device or both - using responsive design. And just as the Oracle database, your application can be as secure and scalable as you need.
Even this site is built in APEX ... in just a few minutes.
APEX Consulting - AC in short - is founded and owned by Roel Hartman. Although the company is founded in 2014 under this name, there is a long history to tell ...
Roel is a very experienced Oracle Software Architect. He started working around 1990 using Oracle RDBMS 5, Oracle Forms 2.3, RPT/RPF and Oracle*Case 4.5 - since then he used all versions of these products. Since more than 10 years he focuses mainly on Oracle Application Express. In his daily work, he has acted as a (technical) lead in numerous projects using Designer, Developer, PL/SQL and APEX. Roel has been a speaker on UKOUG, OOW, Collaborate, ODTUG's Kscope and a number of local Oracle User Groups. He is an active participant of the Oracle APEX Forum and keeps an (APEX-related) blog on
. In June 2009 Roel received an Oracle ACE award and in August 2010 he's appointed as Oracle ACE Director. In 2019 he was promoted to Groundbreaker Ambassador by Oracle.
Roel is a co-writer of the
