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.

WizeHive Zengine

Due to the experience I've had, I'm a strong advocate that it's the perfect system for a small or mid-sized organization to utilize because of it's ease of use for both the customer and the staff. I don't have first hand experience for where it may be less appropriate, so it's hard for me to offer an opinion on that.

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

  • It has made the application, which is almost identical to the application questions previously displayed by our old service, seem less daunting and more user friendly to grant applicants.
  • The grant review team has exclaimed that the side-by-side review option is the best feature ever invented and has saved them loads of paper.
  • Internally, I appreciate the ease of use of the back end system. Being able to easily assign grants to reviews both in and outside the organization, easily create queries for the stats I need, and the ability to move application through the steps of the system seamlessly make this my top choice since I'm the only staff member dedicated to the Foundation which leaves me with lots on my plate to balance.

Cons

  • There is an improvement required for Reporting part.
  • UX can also improve such as in consideration of some CMS system. Sometimes business usually compares the UX with some CMS systems like SharePoint.
  • Tableau or any other visualization tool integration is Key to provide Single customer View.

  • I haven't found any yet. At this point, I'm thrilled with each of the features and the ease of use of the system.

Usability

Appian8.8
Based on 28 answers
On usability space, We found Appian is a very simple and nice to use interface. The browser independent support is another key aspect to implement a solution at an Enterprise level.Develop once and use anywhere like Mobile & IPAD devices is another key aspect to see the usability. There are few improvements required in the Mobile version. However, overall it's a good to use system.

The fact that just 1 staff member can manage to run the entire system on top of their other responsibilities has been a dream.

Support

Based on 52 answers
We have observed the Appian support response is very quick to help you to resolve your queries. Sometimes we have also received very positive support during very high priority production incidents. A 24*7 clock support is another very good factor to work with Appian support. As a Global presence organization that was a key ask for any vendor.

We have only ever had one major issue arrive the night before our second grant cycle of the year opened and the team at WizeHive came to the rescue within hours ensuring that we were back up and running with no issues.

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.

Their design team gave us the option to save some money by creating the forms ourselves for both the submission and review portals. This also allowed us to get to a point where we felt very comfortable in any future changes that would need to be made to forms since we were so immersed in creating them.

Alternatives Considered

We have evaluated three products, Like K2, XTRAC. Some of the key highlights are: Whilst XTRAC participated in the POC, it was mutually agreed that XTRAC does not support the extended BPM requirements which form the must-have core platform process requirements. XTRAC, therefore, did not continue with the POC.
Whilst K2 had a strong user-interface, and could meet our functional requirements, they scored poorly in areas such as cloud readiness and support for Automated Regression Testing, Continuous Deployment, Continuous Integration, Data Integration Tools and Data Lineage Tools
Appian has shown to be ahead of other BPM tools in extending beyond traditional BPM capabilities and seeking to fully maximise efficiency through the linking of the process to the data, and by providing the out-of-the-box data-centric architecture. Appian web pages are fully configurable to show the complete data record in an intuitive, unified user interface.

I wasn't working with the USTA Florida team when they were using GIFTS, so I'm unable to compare. When I came into the organization they were already on their search to find a system to replace Blackbaud and had closed their grant applications for over a year since they didn't have someone dedicated to focusing on the search.

Return on Investment

  • Some of places like Fund & Share Class Launch processes we have achieved the ROI. Some of the places we are still working on this.
Ravi Joshi, PMI-ACP® profile photo
  • The ability to only pay for the features we needed for a system that is easy to use by all is considered a perfect ROI for selected WizeHive Zengine.
