Product Innovation

Enhancements to the Appian 7 platform focused on making application easy to build, maintain and use. Appian 7 is leading the evolution of modern Application Platforms that unify enterprise data, process management, native mobility, social collaboration, and flexible hosting with easy migration between cloud and on-premise. Appian also continued to enhance its unique Appian SAIL (Self-Assembling Interface Layer) technology for dynamic user interfaces that render natively on desktop and mobile devices with no additional coding. Highlights of the latest version of Appian 7 include:
