Low-code Automation: The Conductor Your Multi-System Orchestra Needs

Blog: Appian Insight

An orchestra is made up of groups of instrumentalists—strings, woodwind, brass, percussion—all serving a specific purpose and all kept in time by a conductor.

The IT world operates the same way. But it’s hard to find a conductor that unifies multiple and disparate legacy and modern systems that all serve a specific purpose and need to interact with each other. Instead of beautiful orchestration, many IT departments end up with noise—unless they have a low-code automation platform.

Think of this platform as a conductor, bringing systems together into a cohesive and smooth process. Backed by industry-leading workflow, artificial intelligence (AI), robotic process automation (RPA), and case management, Appian’s low-code automation guarantees speed and accuracy. It unifies data, processes, and people in a single view while giving the flexibility to find the right information you need and act with your data living anywhere. You continue to own your data, and with no data migration necessary. Appian, by changing the way people, technologies, and data interact via a single, modern user interface, empowers organizations to innovate quickly and deliver business impact.

Unlock digital transformation

Businesses today are tasked to increase efficiency and create seamless, positive customer experiences. Ripping and replacing technologies for this goal can be painful.  However, technical debt, defined as implied cost by choosing the easy solution over the appropriate solution can cause unnecessary rework, bottlenecks, higher operating expenses, and developmental delays.  According to an IDG study, “Technical debt consumes 40% of IT development time.” Essentially, settling on the easy solution is like asking an orchestra to play Mary Had a Little Lamb—when you could be enjoying a flawless performance of Mozart.

Built to bring data together for complete, end-to-end automation, Appian’s low-code automation platform provides the solid support your disparate systems need to operate as one. It’s the conductor that knows when to cue the solo, when to emphasize the crescendo, and how to keep every instrument in time.

The platform’s main components include:

These four components are the meter, melody, and tempo that keep systems running together in harmony.

Say goodbye to data silos

A unified view of data across systems helps you accelerate decisions, increase productivity and collaboration across your organization, and improve outcomes—even when your data lives in disparate locations. Appian’s low-code automation platform—a triple crown leader in low-code app development, BPM, and case management—is the conductor that orchestrates your business, wherever your data may be.
