Appian Review

Helps speed our time to solution with less demand for resources

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use for this solution is Business Process Automation.  Appian is good for enterprise process automation as well as general purpose low code development.

How has it helped my organization?

Since implementing, we have had a faster time to solution, with fewer resources needed per project compared to other tools.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features of Appian are the Low Code, robust Process Design, Run-time Management, Deployment, Interfaces, and Mobility.  The business rules capability are advanced and the integration capabilities are second to none.  We also find security to be more robust than pretty much all other application platforms we've worked with in the past.

What needs improvement?

We've used a good number of Business Process Automation tools in the past and none of them have given the value for money we are seeing with Appian.  Appian enables us spend the least time designing beautiful and robust interfaces that automatically render in Web browsers and native mobile apps securely without any additional effort.  With very little learning curve, an Appian designer will start designing very complex and dynamic interfaces that consume data from everywhere.

We would however like to have more granular control for interface styling in future releases.  Appian releases updates to the platform every quarter.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for one year.
