    Business Process Management Suite - Appian

    Reviewed 2 years ago
    Pros

    The most powerful feature of this platform for us was the ability to integrate seamlessly into quite a number of upstream and downstream systems using a variety of integration methods (connected systems, pub/sub methods, web services of various types and shared data among others). With thousands of users working across complex, often long-running business processes, this was a key enabler.

    Cons

    Recent releases have added capabilities only to the Appian Cloud based product, would like these also available to on-premise installations.

    Great for rapid application development

    Reviewed a year ago

    I was able to quickly standup useful business applications with Appian that has helped my department become more productive in day to day tasks.

    Pros

    Appian's rapid application development capabilities allow you to quickly standup a production ready application with a user interface and business workflows.

    Cons

    Some of the things involved in application development are not standards based. It feels like I have to learn a new programming language, although it is quite simple to learn.

    Hugely Effective BPM Tool with Ever-growing features!

    Reviewed a year ago

    I have been working as a developer on Appian for almost 2 years. This tools has been there in my organization for around 5 years now. We have replaced so many tools in BPM but this has always remained intact solely because of it's user-friendly approach, easy to learn and build and it's huge market dominance. I picked up the tool and got going with it in a week's time. It's so easy to learn it. Also, the kind of capabilities and features it provides and the overall UI has kept customer satisfaction levels in my organization at an all time high!

    Pros

    This is the best BPM tool I have ever worked on. We are using it in our organization for 5+ years now. Features I like the most are : -Easy to learn and use. -Deployment suite is super nice and easy. -UI is very user-friendly and even a beginner will not have much difficulty in understanding and hovering around the tool a little bit. It's that easy! I was able to learn it in a week's time. -They are now also adding RPA features in the tool which makes us remain on the same tool skill set yet move around other BPM related industry capabilities like RPA and AI.

    Cons

    It might be a little costly for small and medium enterprises. I can't think of anything else.
