Appian - perfect tool for our ongoing business transformation

Evaluation Lessons Learned

I would get a better understanding of the after project implementation support. That also forms questions in regards to BAU support and adding features that are constantly promoted by Appian.
Their 80/20 approach (80% workable / 20% fix bugs after implementation) at the time is not the best way when several processes are implemented and documentation should be done, but business SME's are tight up with the next process implementation.
Appian should provide a list of external vendors who are able to support their product at the same high standard as Appian does it - but with the fraction of the cost.

I would probably compare more vendors to have a better holistic view of what is available on the market.

If given the opportunity, I would have more thoroughly investigated the availability of experienced Appian resources across our global regions. It’s hard to find and retain Appian experience in some regions.

Appian Business Process Management Application Review

Evaluation Lessons Learned

We would not change our process. Using Gartner research we identified and narrowed our list to a top 3 vendors. We had prototype processes developed in each system and then evaluated each vendor application based on a list of criteria. We scored each vendor and then determined our final selection.

Appian - A software developer's friend

Evaluation Lessons Learned

The process got stalled because of a lack of management buy in from the start. Once we got that we were able to proceed quickly to purchasing the product. Get someone on an executive level to be a champion and that will make life easier for arriving at the solution more quickly.

About Appian

Appian provides a software development platform that combines Full-Stack Automation and enterprise low-code to rapidly deliver business applications. The vendor boasts many of the world’s largest organizations are using Appian to improve customer experience, achieve operational excellence, and simplify global risk and compliance. They further state that Appian runs some of the most important processes at the world’s best companies, like Barclays, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Aviva, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, and the US Department of the Treasury.

In Appian users don’t code an application, but draw it -- like a flowchart. The vendor cites Forrester, who says Appian is 10-20x faster than regular development. This approach is called ‘low-code’.

Appian can be used to write new apps from scratch, or to integrate and enhance legacy applications already in place. Users don’t have to migrate data to use Appian, as the vendor states Appian plays well with existing systems.
