6BURLINGTON, MA. April 29, 2014 – Today Alpha Software Corporation, which offers the most complete environment for rapidly prototyping, developing and deploying enterprise-level, cross-platform mobile and web business applications, announced that an increasing number of Software as a Service (SaaS) and Mobile Software as a Service (mSaaS) businesses have adopted the Alpha Anywhere development environment.
The SaaS market, which has revolutionized the way software is distributed, is exploding and expected to reach $22.1 billion by 2015, according to Gartner research. Despite the appeal of SaaS, the time and costs required to develop sophisticated applications that run responsively on any mobile device and the web remains a major obstacle for entrepreneurs. Alpha Anywhere, which allows for fast prototyping through to secure deployment of enterprise-level responsive business applications for mobile devices and the web, has emerged as the preferred solution to the long and expensive development cycles typically faced in the creation and updating of SaaS applications.
"Alpha Anywhere enables us to build powerful applications that run on iOS, Android and the web in a fraction of the time compared to other development environments," said Scott Moore, President of Business Support Solutions, Owner and Operator of PetSitClick, a scalable ERP platform that handles hundreds of thousands of daily transactions in the pet care industry. "Equally important, Alpha Anywhere has proven to be extremely cost-effective to operate and maintain, allowing us to price our service optimally for the market without being burdened by high per-user costs."
