“Users for these tools can come from many areas of an organization, and are not concerned with the intricate details of mobile app mechanics. Their object is to produce useful apps as rapidly and easily as they might create a presentation using a typical office productivity suite. This has the double benefit of allowing the developer, someone who may have never written a line of code, to focus on tasks that require human input, such as workflow, while ensuring that potentially complex code, such as offline synchronization, is built correctly. “Authors point to RMAD’s ease of updating, due to a single code base, as a perfect fit for long living apps that must evolved and updated frequently over a long period of time. In addition, authors highlight RMAD’s ability to rapidly produce apps at a very low cost, making it an ideal fit for disposable apps that are critical but may only live for a short time, such as seasonal work. Gartner lists the top RMAD platforms in the report, with Alpha Software leading the list.
