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.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM

TIBCO BPM is well suited in these domains: high-productivity app authoring, monitoring and business alignment, rule and decision management, and analytics. But it is not as user-friendly as needed. A lot of customization [is required].

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

  • Creating a good corporate management system
  • Good phase of logging and management of every business process
  • Good correlation with database drivers

Cons

  • 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 or Groovy out of the box.
  • Debugging has proved difficult.

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.

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

Our approach to selecting Appian was more of a solution based approach to an existing problem. Since then, our Enterprise Architect has been instrumental in mapping out where we will be taking Appian and how it can be applied across the organisation.

TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM improves the user experience, user task and form builder is fantastic, TIBCO scripting is better and more expressive for data management.

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.
