Reusable Application Library

Deloitte’s pre-configured Reusable Application Library application empowers IT, business owners, and the Center of Excellence to inform and share Appian objects with project teams to accelerate and standardize delivery.  Appian enables reuse of objects – processes, rules, decisions, integrations, etc. – but value is realized when they are reused. When working in a federated model, using rotating staff, or within a long-term program, it may be difficult to inform teams on what tools are available to them. Security models do not also provide designers access to all objects and/or objects may become lengthy to search. Deloitte’s solution provides a clean and intuitive interface to showcase reusable components that allows designers to find objects available to them, request access, and include in delivery.

The Reusable Application Library adds value by providing:

  • Efficiency in enabling “build once, deploy again” capability across the environment
  • Consistency by centralizing (or allowing the configuration of) functionality and styling instead of creating one-offs
  • Extensibility offered by allowing further development on objects for teams who have similar, but branching, business requirements
  • Resiliency of utilizing code that is pre-tested and pre-cleared for your organization, reducing risk of new defects and adverse findings

Intended Audience:

  • Business Owners who wish to standardize look and feel of applications across departments
  • IT Managers who want to accelerate development while minimizing the risk of new adverse findings or defects
  • Project Managers who seek to minimize time spent “getting up and running” with common features across applications
  • Scrum Team Members looking to spend time on application-specific functionality rather than common building blocks

Key Features and Functionality:

  • Log / edit reusable applications with identifying information
    • Ability to secure reusable applications within a department or expose to the organization
    • Ability to provide an application acronym for uniqueness
    • Ability to provide supporting materials (screen captures, notes, etc)
  • View and search reusable components
  • Ability to request access to the designer objects
