enterprise


We are living in a new era of mobile devices, data proliferation and cloud computing.

Business applications and data now have to be accessible anywhere and anytime while  expectations are that the applications will run in an optimized and responsive way on the web AND all mobile mobile devices
In this new era, developers and line of business domain experts charged with building business applications, are under great pressure to respond quickly to their company's needs for building and deploying powerful, secure and responsive business apps that can run well on the web and mobile devices.

Our goal at Alpha is to empower these developers and line of business domain experts to meet the demanding challenges that they face.

In order to do this we have engineered enterprise/business  ready capabilities and characteristics tightly  into Alpha Anywhere.

Before we get into the key Alpha Anywhere capabilities (which are listed at the end of this posting,) lets explore some of concerns and requirements that 590 corporate developers, CIO's and CTO expressed in a recent VDC Research study regarding mobile app development.
