"The technical support is excellent."
"Good workflow engines that bridge the gaps of processes."
"We appreciate the drag and drop functionality and the easy to access plug and play features."
"Appian has many valuable features, the first being the ease of development—rapid development. Second, the process of learning the product and tool is faster when compared to its peers in the market. It's closer to low-code, and while it's still not very easy, it's more low-code than other products in the industry. Appian has a good user interface, a seamless model user interface, which comes without additional coding. It can also integrate with multiple systems."
"It's heavy on business processing in terms of logic, process workflows, and primarily on the process design modeler. Appian is really great at that. In terms of the full stack set from a low-code platform perspective, it's definitely an eye opener since it can be deployed via mobile app and on the web as well."
"Compared to other code tools that I've seen, Appian has a more robust rules engine"
"In terms of interface, it's very good. In terms of infrastructure, it's amazing and already using multiple tools behind the scenes. It's a low-code platform, so it's very easy to implement."
"The product has a very good mobile app."
"The most valuable features are security, stability, and ease of implementation."
"It has a well-designed architecture and is a simple 3rd party application."
"Oracle APEX improved our organization by making it possible for us to implement agile project development."
"With only a browser, it is very easy to develop in a web environment."
"The most valuable feature is the ease of use."
"It has many ready modules that can be used and developed."
"I would like to see more complete university tools. For example, with UiPath, I have had a good experience related to a free course in order to provide some users some different levels of knowledge. This extra training helps users not only use the solution but to develop further within the tool."
"One room for improvement is the ease of UI UX development, like in OutSystems and Mendix."
"There could be a scope of enhancement for capturing the variety of use cases."
"Appian could include other applications that we could reuse for other customers, CRM for example."
"Appian could be improved by making it a strict, no-code platform with free-built process packs."
"Something I would like to see improved is an SQL database connection."
"The UI of Appian is more internal. Recently, there has been an addition of an external user portal for the customer-facing stuff. It's still coming out."
"We have clients that want to use Office 365, Microsoft Analytics, and Power Apps. Appian just isn't the same as using something specifically designed to cater to the Microsoft Suite."
"I don't like the URL syntax."
"Maybe there are other technologies that offer what APEX cannot."
"Some of the application interfaces of Oracle Application Express are not very attractive and could be improved."
"Connections to the application pages are not handled well and at times more than one user can be accessing an application with the same ID."
"When exporting, we can't export dynamic reports, only static reports. For example, when we want to export charts or tables it is only exported as a static report so we can't drop down on these reports; however, we can see this information when we are on the dashboard itself."
"Oracle should implement vertical and horizontal data segmentation in APEX's security framework, so Dev teams don't need to do any heavy lifting in the APEX screens. This is a common issue in enterprise apps. It would be nice to seamlessly integrate Git repositories into the development process since the current solution can result in overlapping work or an eventual overwrite. The provided example apps are great, but they could benefit from some added documentation in the "explanation screens"."
"There is not a lot of Wiki help or in Google, but there is some."
"Reporting needs to be accessed via third party tools."
