Did you know it takes an average of six months to build and deploy a basic enterprise app?
It’s time to get our hours back. Low-code platforms like Appian cut that dev time in half or more.
Design your apps securely and quickly using visual workflows so you can spend your time coding creative custom features instead of working on non-value adding, monotonous development tasks.

Appian 21.4 release highlights.
Appian engineers are perpetually iterating on the platform with four major product releases every year. Here are the top five features in Appian 21.4 that really put time back in developer hands.
1. Dynamic offline mobile.
Go offline—enable users to use your application no matter where they are. Version 21.4 introduces dynamic offline mobile, allowing users to work even without reliable connectivity. Consider how workers and app users in field operations, such as installation, inspection, sales, auditing, and engineering will benefit from this. With offline mobile, now you can do the following:
We created a new, offline evaluator that can reevaluate forms without being connected to the server. This enables SAIL functions and components for offline use as well as common design patterns.
Create powerful offline interfaces.
2. Powerful one-click reporting.
Database programming and data manipulation can be complicated and time intensive. Managing database views, expression code, or custom API applications can take hours for coding and deployment.
Appian saves time by moving application logic into the Appian application design platform to deliver a one-click experience using no code.
Here are the latest enhancements in Appian 21.4:
3. Fast Robotic process automation (RPA) design.
An RPA system is around 70% faster than a human and able to be productive 100% of the time. It is no wonder building an RPA system is at the top of many developers’ task lists. We’ve enhanced our RPA features to enable both novice and expert low-code developers.
4. Data sync failure resolution, without interrupting users.
Data sync is essential to providing timely and actionable insights to your users. So when a data sync fails, you need to know.
The latest release makes it easier for you to track sync status, receive notifications, troubleshoot any failures, and resolve issues—without interrupting your users. We give you all the info so you can choose what’s best for your system.
5. Intuitive Appian ramp-up.
Onboarding to a new system can involve a learning curve, but we want the ramp-up for Appian to be as smooth as possible for your team. In 21.4 we continue to improve our Appian Designer tool and onboarding materials so that knowledge transfer when developer teams change can be quick and systematic.
Build it to believe it.

The best way to learn is to get hands on. The Appian Community Edition is the place to start for new Appian developers. Dig into the platform, learn the best practices, and get coached toward certifications that will speed up your projects. Rather than giving you pre-fab models, we empower you with the skills and automations you need to get started quickly while tailoring a project to your specific application needs.
