Likelihood to Recommend

Appian

Surely Appian is not a Site Development Tool. So we should avoid the use of a system for just UX development. We should look for process automation as much as we can mature the use cases.

Bizagi Digital Business Platform

Permits dependence reduction on external IT suppliers, maximum value extraction from large/legacy systems, and business and IT collaboration. For big Companies, while an enterprise should expect to face a lot of difficulties, thus increasing the learning curve, while dealing with the platform's rollout the timeline to deploy is extensive.

Cons

Appian

  • There is an improvement required for Reporting part.
  • UX can also improve such as in consideration of some CMS system. Sometimes business usually compares the UX with some CMS systems like SharePoint.
  • Tableau or any other visualization tool integration is Key to provide Single customer View.

Bizagi Digital Business Platform

  • It cannot handle moving several elements at once.
  • The arrows also try to predict that we trying to connect elements to them as we move them, only they never get it right.

Great platform for providing business process management. Fairly easy to learn tool (especially now that I have seen the evolution over 5 years). More difficult to master, but there is a great community that is always willing and able to help solve your problem.

Appian support is pretty good. I would say in many cases it is great. There are some items that it takes too long to resolve. Support is available on our schedule because of the different locations around the globe. Having Appian host our system and perform all of the necessary upgrades, security and system patches has been fantastic. Not being 2 or 3 releases behind is great especially since Appian provides upgrades 4 times a year.

It was really seamless. SaaS in the true definition of the word. We logged on and started using the product. Very easy.

Alternatives Considered

Appian

I have seen other products but I have not used them from a development stand point. From a user stand point we are using Service Now and I find the forms are not as rich and harder to follow. Service Now seems like an older system that does not have the ability that Appian has in many cases.

The pricing/value proposition of the product compared to its competitors is very competitive.
The cost is reasonable, especially for what you get, and especially for this software segment.

Return on Investment

Appian

  • We have only had the software since March 2017 so it's a bit premature to be able to quantify what effect on ROI. We have seen efficiency gains in processing times and throughput when compared to previous years statistics.

  • Process modeling allows you to focus on just the business requirements without getting bogged down in technical design like other platforms.
  • Their adherence to BPM standards and an open database ensures your investment.
