Oracle Forms applications often provide an out-of-date client/server user experience, may have poor usability and accessibility issues, have difficulties working with various browsers, and are not mobile friendly. Finally, it is often difficult and cost prohibitive to hire skilled Oracle Forms developers.
For net new requirements or major functional upgrades, it may be best to consider your alternatives. As Oracle APEX and Oracle Forms are both SQL and PL/SQL based, and provide declarative development environments, it is easy for developers to transition from Oracle Forms to Oracle APEX.
Almost every organization utilizes spreadsheets to disseminate and report on data. Why? Because spreadsheets are so easy to create - anyone can put together a spreadsheet once they have the data. Once created they often send it out to colleagues to help update, and so forth. This inevitably leads to numerous copies with different data and very flawed business processes. A far better solution is to have a single source of truth stored in a fully secured database with a browser-based app that everyone can use to maintain the data.
