Alpha will present our cross platform app creation software — Alpha Anywhere — at the MIT Enterprise Forum on Monday, September 30th. MIT Enterprise Forum also invited Alpha to write a blog post which is shown here, and below:Mobile apps are here to stay, and according to recent reports from Forrester and Gartner, by the end of 2015, more than 80% of business app creation will use HTML5.
While HTML5 allows to developers to build a single app that can adjust to all device types and screen sizes, companies are learning this is not necessarily an easy task, especially for rich business applications. Building business apps that run well on mobile devices and the desktop web is difficult because:
- Applications need to automatically adapt to and need to be optimized for both the desktop web and a variety of mobile devices with a range of screen sizes and touch features.
A better way to mobile app creation through rapid end-to-end HTML5 mobile app developmentAlpha Anywhere offers developers at all skill levels a complete end to end, coding-optional app creation environment for rapidly building and deploying responsive HTML5 and hybrid applications that adapt to any mobile device, PC, Mac, laptop or touch-enabled computer.
Our standards-based environment addresses both of the challenges above, helping companies leverage the developers they already have to quickly develop and deploy scalable, business applications.
To illustrate the value and productivity of Alpha Anywhere, this five minute video below compares how a mobile app is built using Alpha Anywhere to capture images from a phone and write them to a database (coding optional), and an HTML5 development approach using another vendor's solution (coding required).
The time savings (less than 10 minutes vs hours or even days) and ease of development offered by Alpha Anywhere is compelling.

Check out the link on the desktop web, on the a smart phone and a tablet. Notice how you get a different, tailored experience on each device)
