Taking its complexity into consideration, developing enterprise software is very difficult. It needs extreme planning and expertise. Lack of knowledge in the development phase can put a big hole in company’s pocket.
Enterprise softwares are the instruments of administration, management, and planning for an enterprise. They should function smoothly, cater to each need of a company, and give back a considerable return on investment. With this said, partnering with an expert becomes the need of the hour. Here we introduce you Appian.
Appian is a low-code automation platform for building enterprise software applications, faster. We help you automate and transform your business by creating new apps from scratch, or by connecting and enhancing legacy applications – all up to 20X faster than traditional development. With Appian, you get the speed of low-code development with the power of intelligent automation in one trusted and unified cloud platform.
How it all started
Before Appian was a company, it was an idea. Not about a product or a market, but about the culture needed to sustain innovation and value. Appian was founded on the belief that talented and passionate people, given the power to be heard and the autonomy to excel, will deliver amazing results.
Today, Appian is a recognized global leader in multiple enterprise technology markets. Markets called intelligent business process management systems (iBPMS), dynamic case management (DCM), digital process automation (DPA), and low-code development.
A fully unified platform delivering the right technology for the right job. Only Appian natively unites all the capabilities required to deliver impactful, end-to-end processes across your organization. Now you can build more powerful apps and dramatically increase productivity.
Staying focused on its core principles
Simplicity: Every aspect of Appian is architected for simplicity – from its intuitive end user experience, to its productive low-code design environment, to its fully managed cloud.
Appian can be learned in days and mastered in weeks. Appian requires far less full-time employee (FTE) support than other vendors, with Appian Cloud eliminating maintenance and upgrade support entirely.
Extreme Speed: Appian pioneered enterprise low-code development so you can deliver transformational business applications in a fraction of the time it used to take. Up to 20x faster — because in Appian you don’t code your application. You draw it, like a flow chart.
That makes building new applications intuitive to business people, so aligning business and IT has never been easier. Which makes delivering a winning application in Appian faster than other approaches.
Unified Data: Centralized data architectures are not only obsolete; they make meaningful business transformation and sustainable IT agility impossible.
You and your employees need the full picture. Whatever the topic, wherever the data lives, you should have a 360-degree view, in real-time, that’s one click away from action.
That’s Appian Records — a single, actionable view of all data relevant to a topic. You don’t have to move any of your data, and you don’t have to choose between real-time information and performance. Its patent-pending parallel processing technology makes it possible by speeding up query performance and throughput.
Smarter Automation: Appian orchestrates the modern workforce of people, systems, and robots. It provides native AI services and no-code integration to the best available AI services from platforms such as Google, Amazon and Microsoft. It empowers your workers with industry-leading RPA. It connects and unifies your enterprise systems and data.
Appian calls it intelligent automation. It’s good for your business because AI and machine learning (ML) drive better business decisions, and robotic process automation (RPA) reduces cost and error in repetitive tasks. It’s good for your customers because they get better, faster, more seamless service across channels. It’s good for your employees because they can focus their time on customer interaction and creative problem-solving.
Multi-experience for Free: Appian believes in the power of multi-experience communication. It just doesn’t believe you should pay a higher price for it.
The needless complexities and costs of building separately across the spectrum of platforms is a hold-over from a fading era. With Appian, you build an application once, and it simply runs everywhere — perfectly — with no extra work or cost.
Built for the future: The reality is most IT departments are overwhelmed maintaining hundreds of siloed applications, many of them legacy, across the enterprise. Simply “keeping the lights on” is a burden that drains resources and prevents innovation.
With a common data scheme and UX patterns, and simultaneous upgrades, Appian is unique in providing built-in safeguards to bust app silos and eliminate the burden of application maintenance.
