Entities (CDTs in Appian terminology) define relationships and target schema tables via XSD files. * SAIL interfaces - Writing code that creates forms requires coding skills in Appian SAIL, a proprietary language.

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. View full review »

SAIL (Self-Assembling Interface Layer), a scripting language provided by Appian. It is the equivalent of JS and CSS. It allows creation of complex UIs which are also responsive. With SAIL, we have a single language for both the UI logic and its appearance. UI components can be built as reusable components and used in multiple UI interfaces. Process Modeling enables creation of business process workflows. You can create complex business workflows in a visual manner, and it is also easy to debug/monitor. View full review »
