Alpha Premiers on Low Code Forrester Wave

Forrester Research released a new mobile low code app development wave and named Alpha Software a key vendor in the segment.

David Ramel of ADTMag wrote an article this week discussing the rise of low code development and results from the new Forrester Mobile Low Code Development Platforms Wave. In this article, "Analysts Sort Out Low-Code Mobile Development Platforms," Ramel discusses the struggle enterprises are facing trying to find and hire trained mobile coders (read: shortage of app developers). He writes:

In the age of enterprise mobility and mobile-first initiatives, the factors that contributed to the rise of general low-code dev platforms -- the aforementioned supply-and-demand pressures -- are magnified in the mobile space.

Experienced and trained mobile coders are so hard to find and are thus commanding such high salaries that the position of mobile app developer was recently named the "best job in America" by mainstream publication CNNMoney.

He states that this pressure has made low-code development platforms a must-have requirement for many enterprises. He then takes a deep-dive into the new "The Forrester Wave: Mobile Low-Code Development Platforms, Q1 2017."
