Forrester: We are well into the mobile shift for business applications

At Alpha. we spend a lot of time talk to customers and reviewing trends in the industry so we can make sure that Alpha Anywhere has the right set of capabilities for our customers when they need them

As part of this effort we came across a recent interview that  Forrester Vice President and Principal Analyst Jeffrey Hammond gave and we wanted to share them with you..

Some of the interesting comments are highlighted below.

“I don’t think it’s hyperbole to say that [the mobile opportunity] is as big if not bigger than the opportunities that we had 25 years ago when the first desktop PC came out.”

” The revenue opportunities of mobile are huge – unprecedented – and companies who aren’t ready to jump in with both feet will be in big trouble.”

” We’re already living in a mobile-first world.”

 When asked what he has to say to IT leaders who think they can wait a few months on mobile, he responded,

“Okay, well, I’m sure I’ll be talking to your replacement at that point in time. Because the reality is we’re well into the mobile shift.”

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.
