Highlights from the 22.4 release:
Gartner defines data fabric as “a design concept that serves as an integrated layer (fabric) of data and connecting processes.” Appian Data Fabric lets you connect your applications to data in any third-party system—no data migration or APIs required. And when you make changes to the data in the systems it lives in, those changes are immediately reflected in your apps.
In Appian 22.4, we’re streamlining codeless data modeling even more and making it easier to add reference data to your applications. We've also made it easier to examine your model by adding more information about where your data comes from and letting you expand the diagram so it’s easier to visualize.
With Appian’s intuitive design experience and versatile functionality, you can build sophisticated and engaging portals with ease. The new portal design object allows you to easily create, build, test, and deploy portals right from Appian Designer. In addition, we added a helpful branding preview, a simple way to manage your portals’ publication status and metrics.
Earlier this year, we updated the look and feel of the Appian Designer views, and continuing in that vein, in 22.4, we’ve modernized the Appian Process Modeler. As always, you’ll find the same powerful and flexible functionality to build even the most complex process models, combined with a new state-of-the-art look and experience. The new badge, node, and smart service icons are intuitive with a clean, modern design.
In Appian 22.4, all of the management pages are now consolidated into one central place to make Appian Process Mining easier to navigate. You can add, edit, share, and delete logs and process scorecards, models, dashboards, and filters. As an added bonus, we’ve also added new guidance on each of the management hub pages to help steer you in the right direction when you’re just getting started.
Appian ensures your peace of mind by keeping your applications, data, and operations secure and compliant with local and global regulations.
The Appian platform and Appian Cloud are built from the ground up for security, scalability, and reliability and meet multiple industry security standards for compliance and data privacy.
