InfoWorld Names Alpha Anywhere a Top Mobile App Development Leader

Organizations continue to struggle to find faster ways to build and deploy the hundreds of mobile apps they'll need to mobilize their business processes. Complex requirements, including support for multiple mobile platforms, can slow the app development process. At the March IDC Directions: Boston conference, Research Vice President of Mobile & Connected Platforms John Jackson, shared recent IDC survey data indicating that approximately 40% of respondents said their companies had mobilized fewer than 3 apps, citing security, data integration and productivity issues as the top 3 factors holding their enterprises back. With app developers in short supply, businesses need to consider other solutions to help them build the mobile applications they need.

This week, Martin Heller of InfoWorld reviews 7 mobile app builders that stand to break this mobile app logjam within enterprises. The article draws from research Heller has done over the past six months to examine and test a variety of mobile app builders and mobile back ends. He concludes that Alpha Anywhere, AnyPresence and Salesforce1 lead this rich field of low-code mobile development tools.

Alpha Anywhere: A Mobile App Leader

Heller explains the benefits Alpha Anywhere provides customers through its built-in offline support and low-code approach to app development, including the ability to easily and quickly develop offline-capable mobile apps. Heller explains:

"The folks at Alpha Software have thought through most of the cases a mobile device might encounter in the field -- trying to consume, modify, and generate server data with unreliable network connectivity -- and have reduced the choices you need to make as a developer to a matter of checking a few boxes…

…Companies that want to create mobile apps that use SQL and REST data sources will benefit from Alpha Anywhere, especially if ease of development and short time to market are important factors. Alpha’s strong support for offline mobile operation, offline-online data synchronization, and intelligent data conflict resolution helps it to stand out in a world where those important issues are too often ignored."

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.
