New Forrester Report Predicts Where Mobile Apps will Go in 2015

Alpha Software This week, Forrester published their mobile predictions for 2015 entitled, "Predictions 2015: Mobile Development Goes Composable, Contextual, and Cross-Touchpoint." The report, written by Michael Facemire and Jeffrey S. Hammond, as consumer and employee demands for innovative mobile experiences continue to accelerate in 2015. In the report,  Forrester  outlines 8 key changes that mobile developers will need to react to in order to innovate. Forrester's eighth prediction focuses on low-code development platforms, specifically mentioning Alpha Anywhere, Appian and, becoming a fit for the "aggregation tier." Forrester defines the aggregation tier in its May 2014 report "The Engagement Platform's Aggregation Tier," as: "the heart of modern enterprise architecture; it maps incoming requests for data to the underlying services that provide it, filters context, and provides operational awareness that enriches customer engagements." Professionals in both IT and lines of business who are responsible for mobile initiatives in their companies will have increasing pressure to mobilize more business processes and traditional business applications. Here at Alpha, we agree that 2015 will be a "show me" year for low-code platforms. Webinars, case studies and user events will be key to helping these decision-makers see practical applications of low-code platforms within enterprises and how they solve some of the complex issues around information models, changing requirements, security and personalization. And if you want to take a look at a low-code development platform yourself, we invite you to download a copy of Alpha Anywhere and use it for free for 30 days.
