Alpha Anywhere

We use Alpha Anywhere to develop large scale business applications. So far, we haven't found any real limitations. This is exemplified by my response to my customers who frequently ask, "Is it possible..." I always interrupt them before this sentence goes any further by telling them, "with our development platform, anything's possible" (then we have to discuss whether the time/cost is worth the added benefit of what they're requesting).

We needed to implement a complex hierarchy tree within a grid so our sales staff can see how accounts are related. We also needed to return many rows of data. Telerik UI components saved the day for us. We have also found that if you have many components on a screen, it tends to slow down Visual Studio and even bloats the DOM code in browsers.

Pros

Alpha Anywhere

  • Mobile application development with true offline capability.
  • Low-code, rapid app development and deployment environment for building native-quality, cross platform web and mobile business applications.

  • Telerik Grid is very useful for CRUD operations on database. We can provide grid toolbar with Add, Edit and Delete buttons. It works perfect.
  • Text box with mask, mask property is like gift we just need to mention formats for input that software wants to accept from User. We use this for Zip codes. US has different zip code formats as compared to Canada. so it make easy just by setting mask.
  • Panel bars, On many web pages we have used panel bars to group related controls together. So UI looks beautiful and user can see all related control together in same section. Panel bar collapse and expand works just fine.

Cons

Alpha Anywhere

  • Whenever I'm asked to criticize Alpha Anywhere, my first comment refers to the documentation. For sure, they've made some improvements, this year, but I still wish it were better. Because I moved from another development package, I really had to start learning from scratch... I've been at it, for years, and I still feel like I have a way to go. The good news is that Alpha has a very active Message Board and there are lots of people who generously give their time to answer questions and help solve problems. There's no "tech support" line to call for help. Alpha DOES offer a paid "mentoring" service, which I used, several times. Unfortunately, my experience with the mentors wasn't as positive as I hoped it would be.
  • Alpha needs to improve its "templates" to make them more modern for users. I've never had a complaint from users, but I'd like my applications to have a newer, flashier look.
  • Alpha advertises itself as "codeless" programming. It is! You can certainly develop an entire application without writing a single line of "code." Unfortunately, that application will be pretty basic. If you're a serious developer, you'll want to learn "javascript" and "XBasic"... it'll come in very handy, as will an understanding about how to create SQL views and queries (and, Stored Procedures), etc.

  • More control over outlines/shapes.
  • When Telerik introduced Kendo UI for Angular it was very slow to implement every component.
  • Could be better in making some of the features responsive in small screens.
  • Some examples are harder to understand because they work on their sample services.

Sometimes there is a "lost in translation" with Telerik. Their documentation sometimes feels incomplete and their forums are sometimes like finding a needle in a haystack. Logging tickets has always been fine and we do get quick response times. But you can tell sometimes the developers or answers are written in a way that English isn't their first language.

The controls work very well as long as they are used as intended. Built-in functionality should be used whenever possible,

Return on Investment

Alpha Anywhere

  • Alpha is our sole Development Platform. It has enabled us to contract for some pretty large jobs. AND, we are regularly told, by our customers, that our programs have helped them improve their organizations, workflows and profits.

Progress Telerik UI

  • Although ribbon implementation is a little choppy, once you figure it out, it works well; it gave our old apps a new, modern look
  • Themes
  • Need tools to replace .Net controls with Progress Telerik UI controls--it's a lot of grunt work
