Appian Foundations will give non-technical team members such as project managers, business analysts, and product owners, the knowledge they need to communicate with Appian Developers throughout the application development lifecycle, which includes application planning, translation of requirements into application components, and leveraging low-code tools for creating design documents and proofs of concept.

You’ll learn important terms that will help you to plan, coordinate, or facilitate application development. You’ll also see an application in action, which will help you to better understand the features of the user experience. From there, you’ll take a simple use case and break it down into application components like records, actions, and reports that you can hand off to Developers.

Following the handoff to Developers, this course will provide lightweight insight into how design objects are configured. We’ll even introduce you to some out-of-the-box tools designed for non-technical users to be able to assist with app design. These will allow you to draw workflow diagrams, create interface mock-ups, and build and test business logic.

After completing this course, you’ll be able to:

  • Define core Appian and application terms
  • Build basic Appian objects
  • Communicate requirements to Developers
  • Mock-up interfaces and business processes using Appian
  • Configure the user experience in a Site
