Alpha Anywhere recently received an Honorable Mention by Gartner in the "Magic Quadrant for Enterprise High-Productivity Application Platform as a Service." According to Gartner, Honorable Mentions are "credible alternatives to the vendors included in this Magic Quadrant."
The Magic Quadrant for enterprise high-productivity PaaS platforms High-productivity application platform as a service (hpaPaaS) solutions support application development, deployment and execution in the cloud, and provide services for declarative, model-driven application design and development, and simplified one-button deployments. According to Gartner, this market is growing quickly as “businesses juggle the demand for applications, digital business requirements and skill set challenges.” Alpha Software’s inclusion occurs at a time when Gartner expanded the criteria to include next-gen apps that incorporate Artificial Intelligence (IT), IoT sensors, and robotic process automation. Only vendors providing true "enterprise" hpaPaaS — as a public cloud service — are considered for inclusion.
While Alpha Software is viewed by customers as having a powerful platform for developers, its value as an easy-to-use citizen development tool is also being recognized in the market. A related Gartner report issued 30 April, “Assessing Microsoft PowerApps as a Citizen Developer Platform,” called out Alpha Anywhere as an alternative to Microsoft PowerApps.
