No-code “Connected Systems,” simplified design, and worry-free deployment
RESTON, Va. – Appian (NASDAQ: APPN) today announced the newest version of the low-code Appian Platform, which increases the speed and business impact of low-code development. The release fulfills Appian’s “Connected Systems” vision for no-code integration across a host of popular enterprise systems and services.The release extends Appian’s commitment to simplicity through visual query design of business data sources and intuitive controls to easily display that data in a grid. The new version also furthers Appian’s promise of worry-free deployment through enhanced automation for DevOps, and the addition of new certifications to Appian’s already industry-leading list of security accreditations.
“Today’s release advances low-code development as a key IT asset for quickly building and deploying transformational and mission-critical business applications,” said Malcolm Ross, Vice President of Product at Appian. “Appian has the speed and enterprise-grade qualities to take our customers from idea to application in eight weeks. That’s the mission of the Appian Guarantee.”
With the new release, Appian expands the Appian AppMarket’s library of no-code Connected Systems and UI Component Plug-ins. These packaged integrations to specific 3rd-party functionality and systems increase the speed and business impact of solutions for the contact center, customer experience, and operational performance. They are built by Appian, its partners, and customers using Appian’s recently-announced Integration Software Development Kit (SDK) that makes creating 3rd-party integration plug-ins simple.
A small sample of the new Connected Systems and Component Plug-ins now packaged with Appian or from the Appian AppMarket includes:
Low-Code Development through Visual Query and Grid Design
The new Appian release makes application design even more simple. Appian previously announced the expansion of its patented SAIL (Self-Assembling Interface Layer) framework to allow automatic and intelligent creation of interfaces based only on a data model. The latest Appian release makes this even easier with a new no-code visual interface for creating data store queries. Query creation is used in every application, and is one of the most challenging tasks in application design. Appian’s new Visual Query Editor allows designers to create queries faster and with fewer errors, while requiring less expertise to get started. The Visual Query Editor is fully integrated with Appian’s Interface Designer and new-evolved Paging Grid.
The new release bolsters Appian’s position as the most secure, reliable and scalable cloud platform for the enterprise. New DevOps features make it easier than ever to automate deployment of new apps across systems. This includes a host of automated code review and monitoring features across application elements including process models, data, rules, and interfaces.
With this release, Appian has also extended its industry lead in security accreditations with the addition of:
