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.

Oracle APEX

If a company is has a need to extend an existing Oracle rep, cis, CRM or other large platform. Also if a company has Oracle-familiar resources and would like to build their own applications or modules to interact with another application.

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

Oracle APEX

  • It is an easy tool to adopt, which allowed us to replace developments in Oracle Forms in many cases.
  • It is very simple to develop different kinds of analysis, in a faster and more friendly way than running Oracle Reports.
  • It helped us to extend our approval workflow, in order to cope with difficult branches that were hard to solve with the standard workflow.
  • It was possible to develop web applications, to share information and transactions with our commercial partners.

Cons

Appian

  • Even if Appian is working a lot on it, it should improve the low-coding features.
  • Improvement of the form design not using sail.
  • Foster the connection for different customers, all of them using Appian. Having a process across companies and not only offices could be great.

Oracle APEX

  • Perhaps is our problem, since we haven’t explored it deeply, but I think that a better portability to mobile devices would help the adoption of APEX.
  • Applications weren’t as light as we thought, and we had to move the APEX server to the same data center where our data base was running, due to performance issues. When we started, we supposed that that situation would not be an issue.
  • At least in Argentina and Brazil, you can not find as many programmers with experience in APEX as you can find with other technologies.

The amount of time and effort that we have spent on our applications with Appian almost guarantees that we will be renewing our licenses. The ROI of Appian has been very benfical

You don't have to renew it. If you have an Oracle database (even the free XE version) you have Apex. Its so easy to use it would be daft not to.

Usability

Appian

Appian 8.4
Based on 32 answers
The usability is quite high thanks to the modern appeal of the platform. In general, the possibility to build the form in a flexible way, lets the designers thinking about UX design principles and mostly co-design the front-end with users that will use it. By the last release, Appian added a lot of new items for form design that are improving a lot the possibilities designers have. The only doubt I have is in the evolution of the Record, Report and News section that sometimes can solve the same problem and you should choose only one of them.

its easy to use as a developer and applications designed using apex are easy and intuitive to use as an end user. Even non-coders can build good applications, the more code you can write the more you can enhance the application but you can get up and running quickly with almost no technical know how.

The ticketing system works quite well and they improved a lot adding some help-desk centers in Europe (more comfortable with the timezone you are working in). For incidents, the answers from support are satisfying too.

Very active and knowledgeable community support includes quick and helpful responses from the Oracle employees on the product development team. I've never had to raise an official support request - everything is dealt with via forums and user groups - or via direct emails. The supposrt commuinty is one of the great things about Apex.

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

As a matter of fact, I was not part of the selection process when Appian was selected for SADIE project. Appian was selected because of its quick application development capability. I heard - someone from the 3rd party development company mentioned - that anything can be built between 4-6 months (of course, enough time and adequate resource availability are factors to consider).

Oracle APEX

I have advanced oracle skills and so for me its the obvious choice. Its free of charge and does everything I need. No need to lok at alternatives in this situation. Everything else would be costly or require third party integration. I have also used oracle apex against other databases (sqlserver) to good effect
