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.

IBM Case Manager

It's well suited for complex applications in health, banking industries, legal departments that deal with repeatable complex business problems and it allows/provide those authority to case workers to resolve these issues. And I feel IBM Case Manager might not be suitable for organization who deal with less complex problems that can be easily resolved by other business process products.

Pros

  • Repeatable process. Once implemented in Appian, you have an automated process that will always work in the same way. No more dependencies on people remembering what needs to be done or how to do it.
  • Great integration with other applications. Appian allows you to integrate with many other applications to provide a seamless process flow.
  • Reporting capability. Appian has the ability to report on information from any connected system to provide real-time data. Very nice graphical and textual reports can be created.
  • Sites. The ability to create a place for a user to be able to perform their required job without having to see all of the other applications, reports and records. This allows a very focused approach for a user to interact with the system.

Cons

  • Appian is continually improving the product but having to learn new features every 3 months (upgrade schedule) can be a challenge.
  • Graphical user interface could use some additional improvements but it has come a long way already.
  • Sites could use some additional modifications. Currently, the News Feed is not available on a site.

If given the chance I would use Appian again. It was a good tool and they are constantly improving it. It was fairly easy to use and any developer who knows JavaScript can customize it to their hearts desire. Once I got used to how it operated my creativity increased and I began thinking of many different types of workflows I could create both for the company and for myself.

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.

As analyst I participated in a developer boot camp. At times it was hard to keep up but most of the time it made sense. Trainer took the time to explain and slowed pace down to answer questions etc.

Alternatives Considered

Our approach to selecting Appian was more of a solution based approach to an existing problem. Since then, our Enterprise Architect has been instrumental in mapping out where we will be taking Appian and how it can be applied across the organisation.
