At a Glance
Appian has launched the latest version of Appian Low-Code Automation Platform, which rides on the motto of a low-code, new-code-free approach to unifying enterprise data.
In a released statement to the press, Appian discussed the features available on the latest version of Appian, which include an AI-driven Intelligent Document Processing (IDP), new design guidance, and enhanced Development, Security, and operations (DevSecOps), among others. The platform also provides a single workflow for automation, team orchestration, existing systems, data, bots, and more.
Reports state that the launch comes amid enterprises scouting for quick solutions to AI-powered applications and smooth workflow automation across departments. Appian Founder and CEO Matt Calkins seconded the opinion. In a blog post on the Appian website, he enunciated how every organization is dependent on applications, which shape their fate, and some of the critical ones are to be written in a few weeks. That is where a low-code automation platform enters the picture, which Matt stresses every business must possess.
Tying the significance of application building via low-code to the pandemic, he added,
“This is the time for low-code automation. It is all the more important in the coronavirus crisis to be able to build applications quickly. We’ve just started a new decade, but low-code is how applications will be built in the future. It’s inevitable. We have to build applications more efficiently.”
The new platform supports the enhancements of Appian Guarantee, which aims to provide a focused eight-week delivery period for application projects.

The aforementioned new features of the Appian low-code includes— a ‘Low-code data’ for easy integration of data which allows a developer to source it without migrating, an ‘IDP’ to eliminate manual processing in workflows, and for efficient processing of large volumes of unstructured data, a low-code robotics process automation to automate tasks much faster, low-code apps and low-code DevSecOps to enhance simplified movement of packages between development, test and production workflow.
