Help with battery vs alternator

I have a 2004 x3 and car wouldn't start-heard the tell tale click-click-click. AAA came out and found the battery had a low charge and jumped it. When they tested the voltage across the battery with it running, they said the alternator seems ok(no ripples). Going to get a new battery-the one I have is the original.
Should I still be worried that the alternator could be an issue?
