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.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.The Application Designer is very user friendly. There are also lot of plug-ins that you can use and, for the most part, they are free.What stands out are the speed of the product, the quick, easy development, and visual diagramming.The tech support is quite good.

The most valuable feature for us is the Omnicon. That made sense for us because our company is now able to capture information from documents.The most valuable feature is the flexibility in using it.

Cons
Authoring tool is slow to use resulted in limitations on how quickly solutions can be built.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.The reporting is not as good as in similar products. They could also improve the dashboards.It needs better integration with our existing application ecosystem.We would like to see more reduced latency. We would like to make sure that the scale-out factor will be much more as workloads come in.It would be nice if you could create your own customized apps when the business needed them.​​Appian is easy to set up, but JBoss is complex. JBoss is the application server for running Appian.

We had consistent issues of Newgen OmniFlow crashing. It's not compatible with bounce browsers like Chrome.The development teams should be more agile and they need to have more team members.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It's good value for the price.I think that if somebody is really serious at looking at business value, then by all means, the product is well worth the value. You get representative business value for the price that you pay for the product, and for the implementation of the product.Product pricing compared to some of the earlier vendors, like IBM, CA, and Oracle, is quite well-priced. Although, we do feel that as we increase the number of users and the workload increases, we will have to spend more.We will have to have a dialogue or negotiate a price for future use. To start with, it is a reasonable price. As we go ahead, we will have to make sure the costs are inline with our expectations as we grow our user base and workloads.It is expensive, but powerful. I would recommend comparing against cheaper licensing products and open source.BPM done right is a huge value proposition for almost any company, and with Appian's low code rapid development model, the ROI can be huge, while the break-even point should be accelerated tremendously.
