High Level Overview of Upcoming Alpha Five -- Rapidly Building Business Applications for Mobile Devices and the Web


A video overview of our upcoming web and mobile application development platform

With the next major version of our web and mobile application development platform, we are focused on solving a complex problem in an elegant and straightforward way.  The problem? How to create a highly productive platform that lets people rapidly build and deploy robust business applications for mobile devices and the web running on desktop, laptop and notebook computers.

And, we are targeting this new platform at two key groups:

  • "Results oriented developers" focused on getting the job done efficiently and cost effectively
  • "Power users" with domain expertise who want to solve the problem themselves
Why is building business applications in this new Mobile + PC Web era so difficult and time consuming? There are a number of factors.

  • There are an overwhelming number of technologies that a developer has to master - SQL, Server Side Coding, HTML5, JavaScript, CSS3, Objective C, Java, PhoneGap, and more
  • Developers have to build to meet the new user experience requirements of  touch and gesture. Here there is a need to have the applications run in an optimized way on PC’s (desktop/notebook web) and on all major mobile devices, taking advantage of mobile specific hardware.
In this 6 minute video,  you will get a good high level overview of Alpha's upcoming web and mobile application development platform, and how it goes about reducing the complexity of this new world.
