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.

It is suitable for any business data currently managed with Excel sheets. It can convert to business software with a few clicks. It is not suitable for complicated business systems such as accounting or manufacturing processes.

Pros

  • I have observed after version 17.1 we have a lot of good features in Appian that improve usability (UX). This adds real value in this competitive Digital space.
  • You can understand business use case and convert it to a logical process automation.
  • Process Modeller has improved a lot and providing smart services use adds more value.
  • Service integration helps us to seamlessly integrate with third-party systems

  • Integration with other SaaS services such as Zoho, Salesforce, etc., via API and JavaScript.
  • No-code, low-code business applications. Just drag & drop.
  • Rapid/agile software development.

Cons

  • We had such a short timeframe for implementing the prototype that we did not get an opportunity to explore the drag and drop business process modelling functionality - this is available in the Appian product, and would enable low code development, but I can't really comment on how good it is.

  • Reporting/Printing should be improved.
  • Support for partial queries.
  • Data update automation such as ages, dates to due date, etc.

It’s relatively easy to configure custom applications out of the box. Accessibility of the cloud environments is a huge plus with customers being located in various locations.

Appian updates happen automatically and regularly (about every two months or so). We are informed when updates are coming to understand the timing, and in our short timeframe (about 6 months) we have had no issues with functionality breaking

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

We went through a light-touch Request for Proposal process, explaining the problem we were trying to fix and giving lots of examples of the current process and pain points. Appian was one of 10 respondents but stood out as having all of the components that would make putting the customer first, sharing information across multiple government agencies, workflow, low code and speed to build a working prototype that would work on multiple devices (pc, mobile, table) out of the box.Appian understood the problem we were trying to fix, and their response answered the majority of our concerns about how to solve the problems for the business customer by using and re-using information. Other providers could do some parts of the functionality needed, or offered to build the prototype from scratch, or couldn't meet our timeframes (due to length of delivery or lack of resources). Some of the respondents missed the point entirely and simply did not meet the requirements we set.Another factor was the cost estimate presented by the respondents - Appian was not the cheapest, but they were definitely not wildly expensive (unlike a couple of other respondents)!

It has a better user interface and is less complicated. Easily integrated with other services with API.
