It looks like two products overlap: Apex Visual force and Oracle Application Express (APEX).

The following questions both have the same tag :

Agreed. I've edited the oracle tag wiki accordingly. – Jeffrey Kemp Feb 26 '11 at 2:36
Should I change apex tags to oracle-apex when I see it, then? – JustinStolle Apr 9 '11 at 6:01
@Justing: I think this would be useful. – Yasir Arsanukaev Apr 9 '11 at 23:25

This way the products of two companies obviously don't overlap.
