Solutions Review recently launched a new branch of its popular website dedicated to building mobile apps, and asked Alpha Software CEO Richard Rabins to offer his perspective on the market as a feature article to launch the site. Richard chose to discuss a particularly new and hot topic in the industry and a trend that our customers are taking advantage of more and more: Rapid Mobile Application Development. Rapid mobile app development tools enable you to quickly build and deploy mobile apps. Instead of building multiple apps for each platform, with an RMAD tool such as Alpha Anywhere, you can build your custom business mobile app once and deploy it to multiple platforms.
In his article, RMAD: The Key to Mobilizing Your Business Fast, Richard talks about the massive need for enterprises to increase their capacity for building apps. In fact, Gartner predicts that 20 million enterprise apps will be built in the next five years. There is growing pressure to build these apps faster and increase efficiencies in the overall process. While traditional mobile app software platforms promise to help, Richard argues that only highly skilled developers can truly take advantage of these tools to speed up the process.
But what if you don’t have staff members that are top of the line developers? A “low code” RMAD platform with coding-optional capabilities allows developers and line of business analysts to build complex web and mobile apps that work across all mobile devices and the desktop, yet also deal with complex business scenarios and policies. In fact, Gartner believes that by 2018, more than 50 percent of companies that will be developing mobile apps will do so by leveraging RMAD – which is a huge rise from just 5 percent in 2014.
