Digital TransFormation: A Fundamental Culture Change for Business

Digital Transformation is crucial if you want to survive and prosper. However, achieving true digital transformation, requires a culture shift. Companies must get comfortable empowering employees in all areas of the business -- not just IT -- to combine technology with their business acumen to challenge the status quo and dramatically improve how the business operates.

But how can you help employees to understand the most effective methods to successfully leverage mobile devices, AI/ML, voice recognition, rich media, chatbots, blockchain and more?  Well, it's important to ensure that your team members can master the backbone of all business processes and technology initiatives -- data-driven business applications. Companies succeeding at digital transformation are speeding development of complex business apps by both IT developers and line of business users developing for the first time.

However, development of these apps is only HALF of the story.  Once an app is developed, it must be securely hosted, distributed to the appropriate end-users on their devices, perform well in changing situations, scale flawlessly, etc.  Business deployment (or DevOps) can be almost as challenging as development.  And to expect business users who are just learning to develop apps to also understand security, load-balancing, etc. is too much too fast.

Alpha Software is focused on helping entire organizations speed digital transformation by enabling IT developers and business users to leverage their skills to build relevant high-value business apps. Our coding-optional Alpha Anywhere platform helps:

At Alpha Software, we're always thinking about both sides of the coin - the front-end and back-end of apps, the IT and business needs, the development and deployment.  It's how we ensure that our customers build native-like business apps in minutes that work anytime, anywhere. And the Alpha Anywhere platform doesn't stop at development. It is a "development and deployment environment" meaning it's focused equally on how to host, distribute, update and scale business apps, with best in class offerings like:

  • Alpha Launch - which allows you to bypass the app stores and allows app developers to instantly distribute mobile apps to end-user mobile devices
  • Alpha Cloud - arguably the industry's best one-click deployment to the cloud, which takes care of the complex management of cloud deployments (monitoring, performance, scalability, etc.) for IT and business users.

At Alpha Software, we're always thinking about how to simplify our customers' lives - by providing solutions which deliver the front-end and back-end of apps, the IT and business needs, as well as development and deployment.  We're inventing ways for experienced developers to do difficult work faster and for citizen developers to build powerful business apps. It's how we ensure that our customers build native-like business apps in minutes that work anytime, anywhere.
