Alpha TransForm is unique in the industry in that:

  • Alpha TransForm offers the development speed of mobile forms platforms without the risk of runout of power before the full requirements of the job can be met.
  • It is a very viable alternative to all purpose low-code platforms like Outsystems, Kony and Mendix for building mobile apps, because it delivers the key benefit of being able to get real-world enterprise mobile apps built in hours or days vs. weeks or months.

Why Alpha TransForm is such a Compelling Development Solution:

The three development methods currently available for building enterprise mobile apps all have serious drawbacks. They either:

  • Offer high certainty that the business requirements can be met, but take too long and cost too much to build, or
  • They allow apps to be built quickly and cost effectively but do not offer certainty that the app will meet the business requirements.
In response to this problem, Alpha Software has created Alpha TransForm, which was designed to overcome all the drawbacks of the existing development methods.:
