BURLINGTON, MA. June 17, 2014 – Alpha Software Corporation, which offers the most complete environment for rapidly prototyping, developing and deploying enterprise-level, cross-platform mobile and web business applications, today announced that it was included as a low-code development platform in the Forrester Research, Inc. June 2014 report, "New Development Platforms Emerge For Customer-Facing Applications." This report analyzes the requirements, products, and potential benefits driving the adoption of low-code application development offerings, which are gaining traction in enterprises building mobile and web business applications.
As companies move to produce more operational mobile apps that service different lines of business, they're realizing that traditional hand-coding is too slow to allow enterprises to develop and deliver the apps needed to win, serve, and retain customers. As a result, Forrester reports that companies are increasingly adopting "low-code" application development platforms, including Alpha Software products, to dramatically reduce the time required to build sophisticated business apps.
According to the report, "Faster delivery is the primary benefit of these [low-code] application platforms; they also help firms respond more quickly to customer feedback after initial software releases and provision mobile and multichannel apps. Usage of low-code platforms is gaining momentum for customer-facing applications."
In the report, Forrester included Alpha Software as one of six general purpose app platforms that addresses a wide range of web and mobile application scenarios with a broad toolset and application services for transactions, integration and workflow. The report also included Alpha Software as one of three vendors that are strong for database applications. Several Alpha Software customers were interviewed for this report.
"Enterprises are under great strain to quickly build more business applications faster, and key requirements include running on multiple devices and running offline," said Richard Rabins, CEO of Alpha Software Corporation. "By using Alpha Software's low-code development environment, our customers have succeeded at accelerating the speed at which they create business applications with the developers they already have on staff."
