Alpha Software serves developers all over of the world; approximately 50% of our customers outside the USA
Mobile is a global phenomena with rapidly growing usage of mobile devices for businesses in all countries (a fascinating slide deck prepared by Mary Meeker is shown here that is full of trends and data.) In terms of Africa, one of the most important regions is Southern Africa, with South Africa as the powerhouse. (As an aside both Selwyn Rabins and I grew up in Johannesburg before coming to Boston to study at MIT.)
For this reason, it was of great interest to us when www.intersoft.co.za, a leading distributor of IT and computer books in South Africa, contacted us about potentially being a partner to introduce Alpha Anywhere into the region.
With our announcement of Alpha Anywhere today in Boston, we are happy to announce this important international partnership which was covered in IT ONLINE, a leading IT publication in South Africa.
Ronald Woolf, one of the two directors of Intersoft had this to say about Alpha Anywhere:
“We are excited to be partnering with Alpha, to bring Alpha Anywhere to the Southern African market. It uniquely meets a critical need for developers who have to rapidly build powerful data-driven business applications that run on all modern smart phones and personal computers,” says director Ronald Woolf of Intersoft Computer books, Publishing & Distribution. “We have entered the post PC era and there are enormous opportunities for developers in our region using Alpha Anywhere to take advantage of this fundamental shift in computing.”
