The Most Popular RMAD Platform-Why Alpha Anywhere Exceeds Expectations

As more and more people become aware of the Alpha Anywhere rapid mobile application development platform - its popularity is growing! In fact, we have been told by influential IT analysts that the close rate on Alpha Anywhere after a demo is exceptional.

Why? It's pretty simple. Alpha Anywhere has garnered multiple awards including the InfoWorld Technology of the Year  2016 award and a #1 rating among actual users of the software on the Gartner Peer review site. Alpha Anywhere  is in this new a rapidly growing category of "Low Code" or sophisticated RMADs (Rapid Mobile (and web) Application Development and Deployment). As much of the work is done with genies and wizards for productivity, but you can always inject client and server code if need be so you can be confident that you complete the job and will not hit the wall. The new category is forecast by the major analysts to grow to 50% of  business mobile apps in the next 4-5 years!

Alpha Anywhere is designed to address the problem outlined below, which has become an acute and serious problem for enterprises.

Enterprises are Facing a Severe Skills Shortage in Terms of Building Enterprise Mobile Apps. Native app  and low level mobile developers are expensive and in very  short supply. And yet, businesses must build thousands of B2B and B2E mobile apps in the coming years to make their workers who work standing up (60% of the workforce) more competitive and productive

Alpha Anywhere unique strengths (which accounts for the high close rate among prospects who know the competition)  include:

  • Patent-Pending Solution for Building Apps that Work Offline - Building apps that work offline is the most challenging aspect of mobile app development. Alpha’s unique approach saves money and time and it deals with conflict resolution, voice, images and  video seamlessly
  • Genie driven approach with inject-able code in special cases, if need be - Greatly speeds time to deployment and significantly expands the base of employees who can build enterprise mobile apps (i.e. less senior developers and departmental power users (the folks who used MS Access to build windows  apps).
  • Unique Coding-Optional Technology - Meets enterprise requirements to add highly-customized features and never "hit the wall." Allows for much faster development and deployment  on Apple and Android phones and tablets
  • Mobilized forms - a new way of building forms for mobile devices that recognize that a desktop form and a mobile form are very different. Check out this video to find out why.
