Technology is constantly evolving. A solution that was great just a few years ago can be irrelevant today, giving companies many reasons to “make the jump” to something more modern. This is even more true for software that is a few decades old — while many such solutions are often constantly improved, even after all these years, they still are as optimal as a new technology created with the needs of today in mind.
The continued support is usually enough to keep things stable, but sometimes it’s better to rip the band-aid off and migrate to something new. One such case is the good old Oracle Forms which has a natural successor in the form of Oracle’s low-code platform – Oracle Application Express (APEX).
