Fundamental Requirements in Mobile App Development - See how Alpha Anywhere Stacks Up


I recently attended the Gartner conference on Application Architecture and Development in Las Vegas and this one slide from the event in many ways "nails" Gartner's view of what is needed in an Application Development Platform in the mobile world.

Gartner's Top 4 Mobile Requirements

Gartner listed the following as the fundamental requirements for building a mobile app:

    • User Interface - Performance and native support for device functions are a critical factor in mobile app success
    • Data Integration - To mobilize the enterprise workforce, integration with back-end databases and services are needed
    • Security - Mobile data needs to be transmitted securely

The Alpha Anywhere Mobile Development Platform

It is very interesting to see how well Alpha Anywhere 3.0 stacks up on these key dimensions as well as on the security dimension.

And in fact, this is all consistent with Alpha Anywhere's mission of empowering developers to rapidly build industrial strength and secure business applications with polished user experiences that can work offline.

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.
