Appian

Appian is very well suited for complex business processes. If implementing using traditional methods is daunting, then Appian would be a good alternative. It follows that simpler business processes would be a breeze. Also, it's well suited for situations where sharing data across processes/applications is likely. There's no need to "integrate" from Appian app to Appian app, so sharing data within the platform is trivial from a technical implementation perspective. Appian may not be as well suited for dealing with very large datasets (tens of thousands of records), it seems too much data may start taxing the system.

Really well suited for processes which work with documents, seems less (but it is possible) appropriate for single/no data actions (e.g. just provide a quick update in SQL database without any process).

Cons

Appian

  • Appian is continually improving the product but having to learn new features every 3 months (upgrade schedule) can be a challenge.
  • Graphical user interface could use some additional improvements but it has come a long way already.
  • Sites could use some additional modifications. Currently, the News Feed is not available on a site.

  • The configuration of the user interface is sometimes not so flexible. However, it can be developed from the (fully flexible then).

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

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.

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.

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

The main advantage of Appian is the cost structure that is more suitable for starting a test-project to see how develop in Appian and most of all how Appian is accepted inside the company. In few weeks you can show the first results and start the journey on digitalization.

Return on Investment

Appian

  • Our objective to reduce customer effort when dealing with government by 25% was exceeded. In the process of applying for an alcohol licence renewal alone, we saw approximately 80% reduction in time and effort for the business customer - and that was just a prototype! Imagine the possibilities when this is taken into a live environment!

  • ROI seems really quick, as processes are delivered really fast (on the go in an agile way)
