"The setup is easy."
"It's a stable product."
"Appian's most valuable feature is that we can create end-to-end process workflows with minimum turnaround."
"The initial setup is easy."
"The most valuable features of Appian are the VPN engine, it is fast, lightweight, and easy to set up business rules. Business teams can do it by themselves. That is a very good feature."
"Appian is easy to install and set up, and it does not come out with your audit. It has accessible process orchestration and process management. With Appian, the time to market is much faster."
"Rearranging things to get information from the objects and the model together to get a report out of them could be done better."
"We have to use a different solution to automate our business processes."
"When you update a page, the information on the quick links sidebar on the left side doesn't stay in the same place. It moves down, so you have to scroll to find it. That's not very user-friendly."
"There is a function to check if the model BPMN is being used correctly, but the report from the check is not always very clear."
"The solution is in English and we have added certain parts in Russian as this is easier for our students. It would be useful to have the system in Russian."
"One of the areas that Appian is working on is to improve its UI capabilities and give more flexibility to the UI."
"There are four areas I believe Appian could improve in. The first is a seamless contact center integration. Appian does not have a contact center feature. The second is advanced features in RPA. The third would be chatbot and email bot integration—while Appian comes with chatbot and email bot, it's not as mature as it should be, compared to the competition. The fourth area would be next best action, since there is not much of this sort of feature in Appian. These are all features which competitors' products have, and in a mature manner, whereas Appian lacks on these four areas. I see customers who are moving from Appian to Pega because these features are not in Appian."
"Authoring tool is slow to use resulted in limitations on how quickly solutions can be built."
"Appian could be improved by making it a strict, no-code platform with free-built process packs."
"If we could calculate the amount of data that will be realized, it would help us a lot."
"Sometimes, clients expect us to implement ERP using Appian, which is very complicated. In such cases, I don't believe that Appian is a good tool for that."
"The performance is pretty good, but the distortions need to be optimized in order for it to work well."
"Something I would like to see improved is an SQL database connection."
