Likelihood to Recommend

Appian

I believe that Appian is very well-suited to provide an approval work-flow. For making requests where there is a specific hierarchy of approvals that must occur, it is great. For example, if an employee needs to make a capital request for a long term project, the number of approvals can be set based on the amount of the items/work that is to be capitalized. If the amount is < 10000, maybe only manager approval is required. If the amount is over 10,000, Department Budgetary approval is also required. Over 25,000, Finance approval is required. Over 100,000, executive approval is required. Appian makes it very easy to set these conditions and send out tasks based on them. Appian also Excels at reporting. Appian provides the tools to report on any of the data that is captured in the request. This data can be exported to Excel to be used for audits or data management. Data can be reported in a variety of ways grid format, generate a pdf, or with charts and graphs. I don't believe that Appian should be used to replace any cost accounting type of functions. There are enterprise systems, such as Oracle that do a better job with that. Appian's strength is providing workflows.

Nuxeo
can be an ideal product for an enterprise that needs a highly-customizable
solution built on a well-supported underlying platform. It is not intended to be an out-of-the-box
solution; rather, it is a foundation for enterprises that want to be able to
adapt it to their specific use cases while still having the benefits of regular
updates and fast support.

Pros

Appian

  • 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

Nuxeo

  • The platform has Lots of option to protect assets, review and share with the required people.
  • It provides a seamless transition from SharePoint which is extremely useful for our business as we have tons of data stored on SharePoint.
  • It is a powerful tool, especially for searching - since the indexing is super fast unlike other platforms.

Cons

Appian

  • Advanced functionality requires use of the Appian expression language. The more advanced the logic, the harder it is to build with the expression language. This means development expertise is more relevant if you need advanced functionality, which I imagine applies almost all the time. I would much prefer if they allowed some common language such as JavaScript out of the box.
  • Debugging has proved difficult. It’s easy for developers to get the app to or feature to a “working” state but it needs robust alpha testing.
  • Deployment can be tricky. When a solution gets big and there are many teams and dependencies, it needs a careful process to ensure things don’t break.
  • Reasuability of Appian objects is both a pro and con. Reusing objects across apps may be more trouble than its worth because of creating heavy dependencies. Experience is helpful to strike the right balance.

  • Documentation is often unclear or lacking robust examples (though continues to improve over time).
  • Integration with modern enterprise identity management providers could be improved.
  • The ability to isolate data and indexes at the back end, to allow greater flexibility in very large enterprises, would be helpful.

We recently renewed our license with Appian. We are convinced that its flexibility, relative ease of use, the support they provide, there mobile advancements and their general willingness and desire to see us succeed all contributed to our reason to renew our agreement with Appian

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.

I don't know how usable Nuxeo is out of the box -- If you are wanting something out of the box, Nuxeo may not be your answer. However, one of the chief strengths of Nuxeo is how customizable it is and how much you can tweak it to capture your needs properly. Out of the box, the usability may not be great, especially if you are looking for specific things, but overall, after some development work, we have it doing many of the things we had initially planned for in a digital asset management system

We have a mixture of onsite and offshore support by Appian and their partner Cognizant. Our stated support hours for the business are 9-5pm Mon-Fri. Cognizant being located in India provides us with coverage up to 9pm should anything happen that needs urgent attention. Appian Cloud Support are also there should we have any issues connecting to the application.

Overall Nuxeo support has been solid. Response times are within agreed SLA, and their knowledge of their product enables quick resolution of issues when we have them. In a hosted model, like we have with Nuxeo, we have the benefit that Nuxeo doesn't have to figure out the underlying setup and configuration. So that helps.I have found Nuxeo to be a strong partner with regards to architecting and designing solutions which leverage their product as a component.However, for all the benefits, Nuxeo limits the number of technical contacts capable of opening tickets and escalating issues. Keep this in mind. While they have been flexible with our account, your mileage may vary.

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.

I attended instructor-led trainings at a couple of points when I was first beginning to serve as project manager on Nuxeo projects. The first one that I attended was meant for business users and decision-makers. The second one was meant for system administrators. The first one provided a great introduction, through demos, of how Nuxeo could be adapted to very different business use cases. The second one, like many instructor-led trainings, was meant for users of a variety of skill levels, and so it could be a bit slow at times for students with a stronger technical background, but the instructor was able to include more advanced components as well.

Nuxeo University provides an ideal starting point for developers and system administrators who are new to the Nuxeo platform. So, in terms of online training for developers and administrators, the learning paths are definitely available.In terms of training for end users: keep in mind that Nuxeo is a foundation with building blocks - what you do with those building blocks is up to you and depends on your business's specific use cases. For this reason, end-user training is largely up to you because it will need to depend on how you've built and configured the system. That said, I've seen the companies that I've worked with configure the system based largely on end-user input, and so it has fit very closely with what those users wanted to do and how they wanted to do it. In cases where elements of the UI weren't fitting quite right with what users naturally wanted to do, based on their process flows, we've often found it easy enough to adapt the UI to the users, rather than using training to adapt the users to the UI.

Alternatives Considered

Appian

The main advantage of Appian is the cost structure that is more suitable for starting a test-project to see how develop in Appian and most of all how Appian is accepted inside the company. In few weeks you can show the first results and start the journey on digitalization.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Nuxeo

Nuxeo stacks up very well against its alternatives. It has a very good UI, migration strategy from SharePoint and documentation skills. Content management real time helps a lot. It is an ECM with DAM. Only disadvantage is that it requires a lot of support from Nuxeo to use certain features. It uses modern frameworks and technologies so that developers find their way around quickly.

Return on Investment

Appian

  • Our objective to reduce customer effort when dealing with government by 25% was exceeded. In the process of applying for an alcohol licence renewal alone, we saw approximately 80% reduction in time and effort for the business customer - and that was just a prototype! Imagine the possibilities when this is taken into a live environment!
Lynley Johnston | TrustRadius Reviewer

Nuxeo

  • It is an open source tool hence proves to be an excellent ROI. Content and document management are managed very well in the tool.
  • Security and role based features play a major role. Migration is a breeze. Hence it is a very positive impact.
  • Nuxeo has very rich feature set but its complex enough and so developers needs considerable time to ramp up on development on this platform .
