Know Your Cloud Solution

Know your cloud solutionWe've written a lot lately about how the unique features of Alpha Cloud that will speed and ease deploying Alpha Anywhere applicationsRecently, one developer we work with compared Alpha Cloud to another leading low-code vendor's cloud solution. Here's what he discovered:

  • There is no automatic scale up/down with OutSystems
  • No SCHEDULED deployments w/OutSystems (you can pre-prepare a deployment to make sure it deploys quickly, but you can’t schedule)
  • OutSystems Cloud does not let you easily spin up new environments – and they will all be on the same version
  • OutSystems Cloud does not let you choose data centers 

When looking at low-code solutions, deployment is just as important as development, so don't forget to make sure the Cloud solution you go with us up to the task.

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.
