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

A scenario in which I suppose that the TIBCO ActiveMatrix BPM product is a suitable product is the phase of analysis and design of the business architecture of a new system. Proper analysis and structuring of your business architecture and database may help to develop business processes through other products, including TIBCO ActiveMatrix BusinessWorks.

Pros

Appian

  • 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.

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.

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

It’s relatively easy to configure custom applications out of the box. Accessibility of the cloud environments is a huge plus with customers being located in various locations.

We have Appian support here full time who are always helpful and understand both the products and our needs. They help guide the product to help it stay stable.On the odd occasion we need to call Appian themselves, they have always been responsive and genuinely want to help us solve the issue.Recently I've needed to send in quite a few support tickets for various issues, none of them were critical and 2 or 3 of them were just questions. Each time I got a response very quickly and each time the help was what was needed.

Alternatives Considered

Appian

We were attracted to Appian for the following reasons:- industry leader for business process management systems- ease of use- low development platform- ability to build once and deploy to different environments- the availability of a java API enables us to interface with our online systems- simple to use and provides a common application to make adoption easier and reduce training requirements.

TIBCO is quite user-friendly with minimal coding and hence strongly recommended.
