Visual Studio.net, Ruby Alpha Five v11 is a game changer because of the combination of power, usability, productivity and richness of the built in capabilities (such as Calendar Component for scheduling apps, GIS/data mapping, HTLM reporting, Image Component and video component.) What blew me away as well is the Dialog component in V11 – the power and productivity are tremendous. Filemaker Pro, Adobe Flex, Joomla/PHP/mySQL Filemaker was limited in the web area. Joomla/PHP/mySQL was not but it was hard to really do what I needed it to do. Adobe Flex was looking fairly good but the world has moved against Flash big time. Alpha Five v11 gives me what I need and then some
Access, PHP Speed of development and the richness of Alpha Five v11. Access As we came into the web environment, Access very quickly fell short and that's when we started shopping for a great alternative - which is what we found in Alpha Five v11. It combines ease of use, and speed of development

Access, Cold Fusion, Visual Studio Alpha Five v11 made the most sense by far because of its flexibility with database connectivity and because so many of the routine tasks are already built in or can be easily created through the use of Alpha Five's "action" JavaScript. The grid is an insanely powerful tool with a lot more options than the other options offer. Visual Studio, WinDev AlphaFive v11 is the most complete package I have found for building and deploying apps in a reasonable amount of time.,Alpha Five offers speed of development, reporting, flexibility and has sheer depth in the tool including: GIS/mapping, image gallery, scheduling, HTML5/flash video component. The list goes on. I really was stunned by the capabilities of the style builder in Alpha Five v11. Also the server side and client side events are extremely cool.
Access, Visual Studio I chose Alpha Five v11 for the following reasons:
  1. Value for money was by far, the best.
  2. Ease of use: one soon becomes familiar with and "at ease" with the development environment.
  3. Extremely efficient in terms of time required to get solutions that are very satisfying.
  4. Excellent help options and video demonstrations; After a short period, I felt part of a new developer family. And, something more important, with family members who were prepared to share their knowledge freely. I was new to web development and looked for software that would allow me to "go web" without trudging through months of study and experimentation in order to convert my desktop apps to the web. I quickly discovered that I was comfortable with web development right from the start: only Alpha Five v11 was able to provide this capability
Filemaker Pro, Revelation. Access, PHP I followed Alpha Five for several years before making the decision to switch to V11. V11 has reached that magical tipping point where virtually unlimited power is packaged up in an extremely productive and usable package. Bravo to the development team.

I could not be happier with my decision. Alpha Five makes me look good in front of my clients – it is my "secret weapon"

Access Alpha Five lets me build powerful web apps without coding but also lets me code when or if I want to PHP, Javascript, Appcelerator Speed of Development and the built in tools like Gis/mapping, scheduling, charting, reporting and multimedia support which save a huge amount of time
PHP The depth and speed of development was astounding compared to PHP. I have already landed two new clients because of Alpha Five v11! Access, PHP, Ruby on Rails Because of Codeless AJAX, Alpha Five v11 apps run really quickly and they take me 10 times less time to build vs using PHP or Ruby. I also really like the reporting features in V11. I was a power Access developer but they have lost their way completely. Their web approach with Sharepoint is very limiting and that you get to the cost. I am delighted with my decision to go with Alpha Five V11

Other comments from Alpha Five v11 users that we have received

  • First, just let me say that this new version is absolutely fantastic! You all deserve a big round of applause from every A5 developer out there. It just keeps getting better and better!
  • v11 is amazing - a powerhouse - great work!
  • Alpha Five v11 exceeds expectations – simply awesome!
  • I studied the competition long and hard before jumping aboard the Alpha Five ship and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Not only is Alpha Five v11 extraordinary right now, but I know that the team who built it are listening closely to us and doing their darndest to support us in our future endeavors. I strongly feel that money is not the principal driving factor with this company; rather, it is a striving for excellence. Great work indeed.
  • I spend a lot of time keeping on top of the options out there. Alpha Five Version11 simply gives you the best for a very affordable price. The delta between v10.5 and v11 is enormous. You should not think twice about getting this version!
  • The new v11 is just blowing me away and the more I work with it the more I smile. The new dialog component is out of this world!
  • I am a developer with over 25 years of experience. Trust me, there is no product like Alpha Five especially v11. I am coming from a Java. Delphi. MSAccess. VB background and I have yet to see a product that comes even close fo A5 v11. I have saved so much time using this product. I would like to congratulate the team for a job well done!
  • Alpha saved our business. Even outsourcing the upgrading of our Paradox application into a web application turned out to cost almost $1 million - it was just unaffordable. After about six of months programming [with Alpha Five v11] we were already selling a read-only web portal connected to our existing database product.
  • I've done a lot of database development for many years. Every other product had limitations in functionality or cost that always kept me looking for something else. Alpha V11 is it. Nearly unlimited functionality and a good price. Its what I've been looking for for over 20 years.
  • I've been developing custom applications for over 30 years starting with Basic and progressing through Pascal. dBase. Clipper. Delphi. and xBase++. I've just started with Alpha Five. I'm constantly amazed at the things Alpha has thought of.
  • DO NOT GET ALPHA FIVE! If you are a competitor of mine, don't get Alpha Five. I don't want you producing solutions faster, better and less expensively for your customers than me.
  • Simply the best! I have yet to find a more complete development system where you don't have to be an Al programmer and have deep pockets.
  • I have been using Alpha Five since v9. [Alpha Five v11] is by far the most amazing and an extremely powerful choice available for web development. I consider myself a system architect…I can dive right into building my system over my DB back-end without having to stress much about the HTML/CSS/GUI. If 'time saved is money earned' is the philosophy of your clients, then this is a technology that you should be using.
  • Alpha Software is SERIOUS about their commitment to provide the right tools to get the results you want in the shortest time possible. They DO listen carefully to their customers. Alpha Five is an affordable development environment with more power and time-saving capabilities than any other platform on the market. Try it, you won't regret it.
