The Journey to Digital Transformation

 APPIAN Platform – The Fast and Easy Way to Digital Transformation and Automation

“Learn from yesterday, live for today and hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.”

--Albert Einstein
 
  Have you encountered processes in your organization that are inefficient, not properly managed or that nobody is able to know what their current status is?

   Digital transformation and automation are not just buzzwords, but rather a concept and essence that must be implemented in order to lead and excel in the business world.

The world today is experiencing accelerated change, increasing complexity, ever changing technology, digitization and automation. Organizations and institutions can no longer afford to continue operating with cumbersome or manual processes, old systems or unfriendly interfaces. They must adopt innovative technologies that will support efficient and fast work processes, enable real-time status, create transparency within the organization and transform the end client interface to digital with automated processes.

One of the most common and accepted technologies among organizations around the world to tackle this is to implement a low code platform, which enables the construction of applications and enterprise computing solutions in a quick and easy manner, with minimal use of code language and programming, and with fast setup and implementation processes.

And what does this has to do with Agile? As part of leading the agile transformation in organizations, we have discovered and understood the significant need of organizations for a platform that will support, not only the flow and efficiency of their workflows, but also enable rapid and high-quality application development and adaptation, based on rapid and lean prototyping. Thus, Bringing early value to the customer, enabling him  to quickly experience the application, and receive early feedback throughout the development process, which will ensure that the final product is tailored to the customer’s needs. All these, are of the fundamental principles of the Agile conception.

We also found, based on empirical studies conducted around the world, that implementing low code platforms in organizations has improved their sense of agility as an organization and their level of agile maturity, relative to companies that have not implemented such platforms.

Therefore, we decided to empower our customers with the world’s leading low code platform – the APPIAN platform, and to serve as an official APPIAN partner in Israel.

 

Why Appian's Low Code Platform?

 

   Appian is a long-standing American public company, one of the pioneers of low code platforms in the world. The Appian platform has been declared a leader in low code platforms for the second year in a row according to Gartner’s annual ranking for 2020 and is the only leader in both the low code and automation fields.

Appian’s automation platform empowers organizations and enables them to build modern applications and digitalize and automate processes quickly, easily and simply, by integrating all the required elements in one platform: powerful workflow management mechanisms (BPM engine) and business rules engine which allows the automation of the most complex workflows, robust management and records capabilities, simple and easy integration with internal and external systems, built-in artificial intelligence (AI) and robotic process automation (RPA) capabilities for performing repeated operations by the employee and much more.

The platform makes it possible to combine the benefits of humans, robots and software and harness them to easily carry out work processes together, while maintaining the ability to monitor and control the workflows and give an up-to-date status at all times. All this, at the speed of Low Code, which can accelerate the application’s development up to 20 times faster and reach full deployment within weeks instead of months.

Among the main advantages of the platform:

  • Combining all the capabilities and technologies required for automation and digitization of work processes, as a built-in and integral part of the platform
  • Data Anywhere - unique capabilities to integrate to internal and external systems and use their data without having to adjust, import or convert the data, which allows easy assembly of a unified screen snapshot from multiple systems
  • Easy-to-use and intuitive interface for employees, enabling quick implementation with fewer resources (can also be used as a user-friendly layer over existing core systems)
  • Fast development and design - accelerate application development time by using Drag-and-Drop functions, schematic construction of workflows (instead of code development) and reuse of components (built originally for other applications)
  • Every application built on the platform is automatically native and mobile and tablet enabled
  • Easy and simple adjustment of the application, to fit with the changing work processes, market requirements or regulation

And what about that and Agile?

 

As part of leading the agile transformation in organizations, we have discovered and understood the significant need of organizations for a platform that will support not only the flow of their workflows and efficiencies, but also enable and develop applications quickly and qualitatively, based on a prototype that can be built quickly and with few resources. Thus, it will be possible to bring early value to the customer, the ability to quickly experience the application, and receive early feedback throughout the development process, which will ensure that the final product is tailored to the customer’s needs. All these, are of the fundamental principles of the Agile conception.

We also found, based on empirical studies conducted around the world, that implementing low code platforms in organizations has improved their sense of agility as an organization and their level of agile maturity, relative to companies that have not implemented these platforms.
Therefore, we decided to make our customers the world’s leading low code platform – the APPIAN platform, and to serve as an official partner of APPIAN in Israel.
