It's being able to manage the workflow, to assign tasks, to have notification that a task has been completed. It's basically what any BPM solution is going to provide. What stands out are the * speed of the product * quick, easy development * visual diagramming. Those are the features that really stand out. View full review »

Project Manager and Technical Leader
* Process Designer - If properly used, the executable flow itself helps you understand the business flow. * Call Web Service Smart Service - Web service integrations with other systems are super simple and fast to create, supported by low code menus. * Write to Data Store Entity - Saving data in SQL databases is done easily using entities. 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 forms are mobile-ready and components can be reused in forms and reports. View full review »
Randy Dillon
Business Process and Software Development Consultant at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
The most valuable features of Appian are: * Rapid development with low-code makes it easier to quickly get apps implemented and the time to break-even and ROI is much faster. * Easy to build case management, with Records and Related Actions facilitates case or document-based applications instead of, or along with, process-based applications, opening up whole new types of applications for Appian development. * Built from the ground up with a cohesive architecture to be the leading social, collaborative, most usable BPM platform. This makes the product feel integrated and intuitive to use, rather than having to seemingly (or actually, in the case of some competitors) go to a separate product to do certain things. In the end, it shortens implementation time and opens up the product to less technical designers because it's easy to use. View full review »
