Appian named leader in low-code development platforms for AD&D

Appian, a leading low-code and BPM platform provider, today announced that it has been named a leader by Forrester Research in the independent analyst firm’s The Forrester Wave: Low-Code Development Platforms For AD&D Pros, Q4 2017 report.

According to Forrester, Appian received the highest score as a declarative tool for low-code development — the “array of techniques for defining data, logic, flows, forms, and other application artefacts without writing code.

The report found AD&D professionals see low-code platforms as a way to “quickly” deliver applications that win, serve, and retain customers.

The report stated: “Appian’s features are broad across the board, and the company’s process and data management features are particularly deep.

“The vendor also offers AD&D pros tools to make initial forays into AI applications – and plans many more over the next year.

“Appian is one of the few of these vendors to provide a tool to enable direct business-developer involvement in application projects and has funded extensive security certifications of its cloud service.”
