Develop Enterprise Apps with Alpha Anywhere's No Code - Dan Bricklin

What Makes Alpha Anywhere a Special Low Code Development System for Mobile and Web Apps?

Ever since Forrester Research came out with their report on the productivity of low code development platforms in which Alpha Anywhere was highlighted, there has been rapidly growing interest in the low code approach to application development. (We suspect that this interest stems from companies understanding that they need to pick up the pace at which they get mobile (and web) apps built and deployed, and the recognition that the current options that are "high code" or "no code" are not delivering the goods because they are too complex/time consuming/expensive/resource intensive or too limiting respectively.) Alpha Anywhere was also featured in SD Times coverage of low code and its benefits in accelerating application development. To help you better understand the Alpha Anywhere approach to delivering productivity AND power, we asked Dan Bricklin to explain what is special about Alpha Anywhere in this area. Alpha Anywhere is a rapid mobile application development platform built with the low code development model in mind. Additional built-in support for adding data security and login, data integration, and more enable you to build enterprise grade applications quickly and easily without sacrificing functionality. We hope you find this video that Dan created to be helpful. Comments to are always welcome.

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.
