Appian

Appian works great for automating manual processes and integrating multiple systems through its toolset. It gives great flexibility for establishing rules for approvals, routings, escalations, and the like. Because of the low code toolset, it's very easy to deploy and make changes as needed as processes evolve and as the organization learns to utilize the system better. Minimal maintenance is required to support the applications build on the platform. Some of the automated testing integration with tools like Jenkins is limited so that may be an issue for some.

Skuid

For anyone looking to build customized user experiences quickly on Salesforce.com and who don't have access or budget for developers then Skuid is an excellent option. Although some investment in license costs and learning is required the pay off comes with the sheer speed and volume of applications that can be built and delivered to the business in short time frames.

Pros

Appian

  • Allows at a glance workflow documentation which assists in the need we have for information readiation.
  • Drag and drop interface for workflow development greatly speeds our apps time to market.
  • Using the advanced features of Appian, we are able to create working sites in a fraction of the time it would take to do so using "traditional" development.

Skuid

  • Pulling data from external sources.
  • Providing visualizations that tell a story & summarize.
  • Integrations with other applications, i.e. Sharepoint for document library storage.
  • Amazing support! Very quick to respond and also wonderful to work with when scoping out your needs.
Jennifer Little | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Appian

  • Search issues when type ahead and database search are used in the same field.
  • Buttons implementation where user is require[d] to click on the button description - if clicks on the button outside that text - button will not work.
  • Problems with using certain off-the-shelf performance tools like WebLoad or Neoload. That is because of different dynamic variables being used internally in Appian - which these tools are unable to correlate. We are still investigating using other tools like Jmeter to overcome dynamic correlation problem for performance testing.

Skuid

  • Release management. Whenever a new version of Skuid is released, upgrading can be a dubious task.
  • Support. Skuid does not offer standard support. Instead, you will be required to use the Skuid community or purchase engineering hours.

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

Appian is a low code environment, because of this, a very good visual interface is required. Appian is providing a feature-rich dashboard [that] we can use for building the dashboards and other interfaces. Appian also provides patches and releases to enhance these features. A developer can start off development just by going through a basic course from the Appian learning community.

Appian is one of the leading low code business automation platforms that support RPA, decision rules, case management, workflow automation, and machine learning all in a single bundle. But it is also harder to implement and replace the traditional business process.

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

Appian

Appian has enormously transformed and keeps on updating the product every quarter to meet the latest needs of the world with new innovations & technologies being integrated within the platform. What gives more pleasure than a product that keeps on continuous[ly] improv[ing]?

Skuid

Salesforce Flows was another way of accomplishing some goals we had but Skuid was much simpler to set up, more intuitive for users, and faster to run. We didn't experience any Apex exceptions or query limits. The only downside to using Skuid vs. Flows was that Skuid required developers whereas Flows can be done by an administrator.

Return on Investment

Appian

  • I believe it has negatively impacted our release dates. There may have been a misunderstanding as to the learning curve, even though it is "low code."
  • The look and feel of the applications created using Appian have uniformity and it's easier to have "reuse" between applications.
  • There is less developer control when it comes to features. I think this mainly has to do with the amount of plugins available. I would think there should be many more available plugins. But again, our use case is probably different than most others.

  • Our customers have been very happy with Skuid and it has allowed them to do things that otherwise would have been impossible.
