In today's world where speed of development is key - Rapid App Development (RAD) has have made a huge comeback because of the pressure to deliver business apps fast. Native development is fine, but incredibly expensive because of lack of portability, the need to code everything, the need to integrate with the backend and the shortage and cost of talent. While it's great for incredibly important, flagship B2C apps, native development isn't realistic for mobilizing the hundreds of business processes - from finance to sales to inventory management to field services - that companies require in today's mobile world.
Now, low-code development or rapid mobile app development platforms are gaining popularity with developers and business analysts looking rapidly build and deploy custom apps—without the need for low-level coding.
However, it's critical to note that rapid development without the necessary power to deliver a mobile app that meets the full outlined business requirements is a failed mission.
Alpha Anywhere was designed to avoid this problem by always assuring that you can code if and when you want to. Yes, most of the work is done without coding - that's why users report such high productivity -- BUT for that last 5% of the project, when coding is often required, it's always possible - so you never end up with a project that is "almost" complete.
This in fact is one of the key reasons that customers are turning to Alpha Anywhere. Our customers repeatedly tell us - and their peers in the market - that Alpha Anywhere helps them get the job done fast and 100% complete. We like to say that with Alpha Anywhere, you'll never run out of headroom.
