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.

Skuid

Skuid is well suited when you need to bring in data from different Salesforce objects and you want to do it without custom code. It's also great for making a Salesforce page look completely different, using your branding and a completely different look and feel.

Pros

  • Ease of Use - one of our main drivers was that it had to be simple to use. Moreso when a large proportion of our userbase are external to the airport and sometimes unknown, which makes training a particularly difficult task. We also didn't want our internal users to be slowed down after the introduction so again we put a lot of effort into making the interface as simple to use and visually uncluttered.
  • Version upgrades, enhancements, minor bug fixes and all loaded without much interruption to the system availability time. We generally schedule version upgrades so that they occur at 1am local time to avoid any impact on our user base.
  • Appian & Cognizant resources assigned to our implementation were and still are absolutely amazing. Going above and beyond to maximise the benefits that we obtain from the implementation. Proactive when it comes to dealing with business units that are somewhat stuck in their ways, happy to demonstrate better ways of doing things and providing solutions to problems that would have been otherwise assigned to the too hard basket.

  • Skuid allows the Salesforce UI to be completely customized.
  • Skuid allows an administrator to change UI instead of having to use custom code.
  • Skuid allows you to make things have the exact look and feel you desire on a page.

Cons

  • Because of the low numbers employed by our organisation, our ability to make use of an enterprise licence model has been restricted. To their credit, Appian have come up with mutually beneficial solutions to help contain costs and allow us to grow our numbers.

  • Skuid is constantly developing, so if the feature you need isn't available, it's likely coming soon on the roadmap.

Usability

The interface is as difficult to use as you make it. We like to follow the KISS principle and automate the mundane so that our staff can concentrate on their day job and not have to worry about what happens next.

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)!

Skuid doesn't require a developer to adjust. It's easier to implement.

Return on Investment

  • Reduced headcount by removing manual processing and cross checking.
  • Reduced errors by automatically inputting data rather than manually keying.
  • Simplified training as processes are now standardised and far easier to use than previously.

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