Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
Form building capabilities and well thought out process modelling are key points to this product.The process models provide self-documenting systems.Since implementing we have had a faster time to solution, with fewer resources needed.Process culture is making noise inside the organization because now, everybody knows that their time is being monitored.Another advantage of this tool is its reports and records. You can maintain dashboards, layouts. If you with a Java solution, it takes six months time. If you use this tool, you can finish in one or one and a half months' time.There is a version coming out every six months with performance improvements.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.

Cons
Authoring tool is slow to use resulted in limitations on how quickly solutions can be built.My only request is that they decrease the license costs.We would like to have more granular control for interface styling.The documentation needs to be improved.Even though the company has made great improvements in online documentation, featuring rich material which includes case studies of real-life use cases, the material could definitely be better in quality and coverage of use cases.A point of improvement would be the SAIL forms. The built-in tool used to generate forms does not have debugging support (to view local variables as they change on live preview, and step-by-step valuation) which is a big drawback for form development. Moreover, the script language used to build SAIL forms does not support inheritance or lambda expressions (functions as arguments of other functions), which makes the code base more verbose.

We would like to have widgets for graphs and analytics, as well as the integration of machine learning.The technology of the solution needs an update. It is deficient in terms of connectivity.Some features are only enabled for paid users. It would be much better if they enabled those features without having to pay. I would also like to see them publish information about future technologies on the Home screen under a separate tab. That would be an improvement.They need to improve their tech support's abilities. They do have a good tech support, but it still requires improvement.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost depends on the number of users, although I recommend taking an unlimited license.

This is an expensive solution, and it is the biggest challenge that we face when we present this platform to customers.​The price is too high. The annual cost for the Kony license is very high. Every year you have to renew it in order to maintain it​
