Overall Satisfaction with Appian

Appian is being used across the IT organization in the company because of the low-code capabilities and works well in the modern agile environment with new RPA features and many more. And it addresses several aspects of the organization such as
  • Migration from legacy systems
  • Eliminating legacy approaches
  • Automating business processes
  • Customer onboarding reports
  • Drag-and-drop interface for workflow development greatly speeds our apps' time to market.
  • Using the advanced features of Appian, we are able to create working sites in a fraction of the time it would take to do so using traditional development.
  • Quick to the market, a real emergency problem solver (e.g., COVID time related apps).
  • Build once, deploy anywhere makes it easy to put an application in users' hands, regardless of form factor (desktop, mobile, etc.).
  • I would like to see more flexibility in Appian's UI components.
  • Appian's RPA capabilities are still growing. I would like to see more user-friendly management/creation of RPA processes.
  • Debugging can be difficult, as error messages are not always detailed enough.
  • Capability to deliver a superlative product in a short timeframe.
  • Migration of legacy applications in a short time.
  • Proof of concept development is much easier and quicker.
Good responsiveness, very competent, and only sometimes the resolution for the issue reported is not 100% satisfactory. The Appian community is a great help for quick answers to some of the queries. Appian could be improved when it comes to proper documentation for the plug-ins. The native Appian documentation portal should also be improved by providing more info on the objects that Appian supports.
Appian is a fast way to create throwaway proof of concepts while having the strength to actualize the POC into working code and working apps. Good abilities to present and manage data, reports, tasks, etc. Documentation on the Appian docs portal can be enhanced to give a better detail of new functionalities.

Excellent for data integration, quick time to market solutions, bringing technology and people together. Appian is beneficial in organizations that need to address workflow problems (like CRM, change management, user and role management, customer onboarding, etc.). It can be configured to automatically assign tasks to groups of users and direct work based on pre-configured logic, speeding up hand-off points in the process. Appian currently isn't best suited to cases where you need a public portal where users aren't logged into an account.
