Alpha Five v11 launched - even better, quicker web-application development

Alpha Five is one of our favourite development environments when creating applications to run over the web.

Traditionally, it has been very difficult to build fully-functional web-based apps as the Internet was really only designed to display information (web pages) and not allow the sort of sophisticated interaction which database applications require.

Alpha allows us to build web-based systems (software which runs entirely within a web browser and needs no software to buy or install on your desktop or laptop) really quickly and with lots of functionality and flexibility.

Recently, for example, we've created a system for an international charity which enables them to capture data from anywhere in the world in order to assess the success of their projects.  We've also used it to build an "Extranet" (ie private system hosted on the Internet) for a national legal services business.

v11 builds on v10's power and ease of use and now enables deployment of applications to all handheld devices as well as PCs and Macs - so this means that we can now build software just as easily for iPad, iPhones, Android phones and Android tablets.

Do you want to make some of your company data available live on the web?  Have you started to build an application using more traditional development tools and are you finding it a very long and costly process?  Do contact us to discuss your requirements - we can help!
