Appian launches new version 21.3 of its Appian Low-Code Automation Platform


Low-code pioneer Appian has not only just concluded its Appian Europe Digital Experience, which you can still attend virtual replays of, but the latest version of its Low-Code Automation Platform has arrived making things faster and more efficient than ever!

Appian. The company famously helps organisations build apps and workflows rapidly, with a low-code automation platform, that combines people, technologies, and data in a single workflow, so companies maximise their resources and improve business results.

In business since 1999, Appian's technology are used by many of the world's largest organisations, and the company has just concluded its Appian Europe Digital Experience, part of its series of global conferences and events held each year, with the European event still able to be freely registered for an experienced virtually, as is the case with events these days that are recorded and made available for a limited time for those online, anywhere in the world.

So, now comes the latest version of the Appian Low-Code Automation Platform. We’re told the new release “makes it faster and more efficient to build enterprise applications through major enhancements in low-code data, complete automation functionality, user interface (UI) creation, and application deployment.”

Indeed, Appian states enterprise data can be slow and difficult to manage for any organisation, and that while building low-code apps is simple and visual, integrating data “still requires a host of database skills.”

The company reminds us its low-code data architecture “intelligently and automatically reshapes your data for optimum performance based on your application designs. Users may source data from anywhere, without needing to migrate it. Visually combine, extend, and model relationships between varied data sources, and automatically optimise data sets for performance, without coding or database programming.”

So, what does the latest version of Appian enable?

The company says it platform makes it easier to access, relate, and transform enterprise data:

  • Take advantage of data sync to build your applications faster. Data sync allows you to rapidly build applications around your enterprise data.
  • Access more of your data without sacrificing performance with double the number of rows a record type can sync from a source—from 500,000 to 1,000,000.
  • Relate more of your data with confidence with new one-to-many record type relationships that provide a holistic view of your data.
  • Auto-generate business processes straight from data records so users can take informed action while viewing unified enterprise data.

The new version of Appian also introduces new features for improved automation, UIs, connected systems, and application deployment enhancements that allow you to do the following:

  • Develop automations more efficiently by recording each step you take within your web browser each time you click or type.
  • Make robot executions faster by skipping setup and cleanup for consecutive RPA executions when processing batch items.
  • Design more attractive UIs by creating applications with finer spacing controls to get the exact look you want and reduce clutter during design.
  • Use Connected Systems to connect to data sources and use object level security for greater control over access to data.
  • Streamline deployments by adding database scripts to packages as you develop, instead of waiting to upload your database scripts during deployment.

Malcolm Ross, Deputy CTO at Appian said: “The Appian low-code data architecture is revolutionary in defining how developers work with enterprise data to rapidly build applications.

“We’re reinforcing the Appian Low-Code Promise that when you create apps with Appian, you should expect to build your apps 10x faster, reduce your maintenance costs by 50%, and gain superior functionality as compared to traditional development.”

Appian naturally invites you to experience the Appian Low-Code Automation Platform for yourself via the free Appian Community Edition environment.
