Overall Satisfaction with Appian

It is used by a department for client onboarding. It helps to automate the existing client onboarding process which was previously done manually. We are using it to manage onboarding questions that need to be answered by the client and send email notifications to the relevant parties within the organisation so that onboarding process times are reduced.
  • Easy to pick up on how to use the tool by going through a paid class organised by Appian.
  • Good documentation on the website to support developers.
  • Simplifies business process management so that companies do not have to reinvent the wheel.
  • Request for features to fix security findings is generally a slow process.
  • Request for features to support business objective is generally a slow process.
  • Appian cloud performance lags behind in-house solution.
  • Faster time to market.
  • Allows embedded interfaces to enhance company's branding.
  • Reduced effort in development and maintenance.
The support request often take a significant amount of time to resolve. Very often we have to fall back on an alternative solution than to have the problems resolved by the support team.
Easy for anyone to learn the tool as long as guidance is provided to explain the various concept of Appian (process model/expression rules, etc.).

Would you buy Appian again?


It's a great tool to manage business processes because it has features to allow you to manage different users and control permission of who has access to certain UI or documents. It takes very little time to develop new features for business needs. Great monitoring tool to help troubleshoot production issues.

If performance is critical, Appian will lag behind.
