Alpha Anywhere - Using OData Data Sources

OData is a standard method of access data using a REST API.

Alpha Anywhere allows you to easily consume data from OData services. In this video, we show how a connection string is defined to connect to an OData service and then how a Grid component is built to go against the OData service. We also show how a UX component with a List can be built using the OData data source.

The Alpha platform is the only unified mobile and web app development and deployment environment with distinct “no-code” and “low-code” components. Using the Alpha TransForm no-code product, business users and developers can take full advantage of all the capabilities of the smartphone to turn any form into a mobile app in minutes, and power users can add advanced app functionality with Alpha TransForm's built-in programming language. IT developers can use the Alpha Anywhere low-code environment to develop complex web or mobile business apps from scratch, integrate data with existing systems of record and workflows (including data collected via Alpha TransForm), and add additional security or authentication requirements to protect corporate data.
