Why Dan Bricklin is Alpha's new CTO...

The short answer: Alpha Anywhere

Chief Technology Officer “To me, what has always set Alpha's products apart from most of the other development environments and made it so appropriate for a very wide range of users has been the combination of power along with speed and ease of use. Mobile is making the developer's job much harder as end users expect a myriad of task-specific applications on short notice while still requiring full-powered applications on the desktop. Alpha is addressing this problem in a unique and valuable way. I am excited to be joining the team as we continue to innovate in the use of computing in business.

Dan has to say on his personal blog

Adviser, Investor and Board Member “The key issues for a prospective customer are assessing a potential partner's people and products. At Progress Software, the company I co-founded, great people produced great products and had a positive impact on the way business applications are developed and deployed. I have experienced the same at Alpha Software, where the focus is delivering a complete environment for building and deploying business applications - for mobile and more. That's why I joined the team.
Adviser and Investor “Cullinane Corporation was the first successful software products company in the world. The secret to our great success was that we really cared about our customers and produced great technology. Alpha Software really cares about its customers and produces great technology like we did. That's why I got involved.

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.
