What is Alpha Anywhere?

The Alpha platform is a unified mobile and web app development and deployment environment with distinct "no-code" and "low-code" components.

The vendor says that using the Alpha TransForm no-code environment, business users and developers can take full advantage of all the capabilities of the smartphone to turn any form into a mobile app in minutes, and power users can add advanced app functionality with Alpha TransForm's built-in programming language.

IT developers can use the Alpha Anywhere low-code environment to build complex, offline-capable web and mobile business apps with deep functionality. Alpha Anywhere can access and integrate with existing databases and web services, and can exploit built-in role-based security. Additionally, the vendor says Alpha Anywhere is designed to build applications in significantly less time than traditional coding. While most other mobile app development software addresses either the front-end OR the back-end, Alpha Anywhere combines all required client AND server development features. Enterprise level reporting, geo-location/mapping tools, charting, scheduling, media handling (including offloading options to the cloud) and responsive design are all built-in. This solution includes native-like quick start mobile templates right out of the box.

  • It allows the developer to focus on the end user needs while doing the "heavy lifting" of application development.
  • It seamlessly is able to connect to just about any back end database taking care of the nuances of the database programmed language.
  • It has a full production environment which includes a powerful cloud hosting offering that simplifies the delivery of the end product
  • It has a feature rich digital form filling application called Alpha Transform which integrates very well with the IDE
  • Constant and dynamic updates to the system are one of the biggest strengths but can also be one of its weaknesses as it can be difficult to keep up with the pace of change.

  • We import our medication files.
  • We save the patient’s History & Physical documents to S3 buckets. The documents range from 30-300 pages.
  • We export billing files to the Medicare mainframe.
  • We run over 80 audits on each chart per day.
  • WYSIWYG would be a nice feature.
  • Widgets. It can be done in Alpha, but it can be improved on.

  • 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.
  • Cross platform mobile apps created with HTML5.
  • Back-end database support for pretty much all the most popular SQL backends as well as NoSQL and Rest APIs.
  • There is no drag and drop form designer however this is not a big problem once you get used to it and through the use of genies, templates, etc.

  • Our company had been creating small business applications since the 1980's, when we used DBase IV (don't laugh... that's what was available). Then, we got more "sophisticated" with Microsoft Access. Clearly, we would always be limited with what we can do with those two programs. By accident, during an Internet search, we saw and ad for Alpha Anywhere (back then, it was called Alpha V). After working with the 30 free trial for just two weeks, we retired Access, for good. The best part was Alpha's flexibility in its use of "back end" data tables. That allowed us to use existing Access tables as we redesigned the front-end program (Alpha ships with its own DBF system, but we prefer SQL-Based tables). You can choose, SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, Access, Paradox (actually, too many to name) for your tables. You can even create links to Excel spreadsheets or QuickBooks Tables. It's outstanding!
  • Alpha allows developers to create very large and very complex programs. However, it's also a great choice for RAD (Rapid Application Development) for those who need to be up and running quickly or for less experienced programmers. Actually, the interface truly allows for "codeless" development of your application (more on that later). That means you can design a fully functional application, without typing a single line of code. They have some examples on their website.
  • My favorite part of Alpha is that it is constantly adding features and functions that allow us to do more with our applications. In fact, one of my biggest problems is that I need more time to learn and practice the added features as fast as they are introduced
  • Prior to Alpha Anywhere, we never considered creating/developing "mobile" applications (for tablets, smartphones, etc.). Alpha created a unique "panel" system that makes those application work great... and allows for the design of very sophisticated Apps.
  • 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.
