Proven principles and best practices for low-code success.
Low-code success all starts with establishing a vision, a commitment to solving critical business problems rapidly and efficiently. That means aiming higher, thinking beyond the constraints imposed by traditional software development, and not restricting the power of low-code to periphery applications. To do this, you’ll not only need to set an inspiring vision, but tie that vision to real business value and actionable metrics. The Appian Max Vision Pillar has the resources you need to start crafting your own unique vision, whether that’s increasing the speed and efficiency of development, or setting up a full suite of end-to-end automation tools.
Establish your Vision
Low-code works best with small agile teams of generalists rather than specialists. Team members include not only the developers themselves, but business representatives, analysts, and more. So who should be on these teams? What are their qualifications? How do they become low-code experts? Every organization is at a different place along the low-code success continuum, so there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to team-building. The Appian Max People Pillar discusses how to recruit, organize, and train your team to be successful with low-code at any point along the path. Build your Team
Delivering on the power of low-code means aligning development efforts with both business and user needs. For organizations not accustomed to thinking like software companies, it’s crucial to have a roadmap along the low-code implementation journey.The Appian Max Delivery Pillar provides this roadmap by focusing on Appian’s proven delivery methodology–a repository of best practice guidance, tools, and templates to help your low-code development efforts thrive. Deliver value
Sometimes it doesn’t matter how powerful or diverse your technology stack is if you don’t know which tools to apply to which task. Given the array of automation technologies, access to data, and increasing use of AI, even the best low-code platforms could overwhelm new users with the amount of tools available.
The Appian Max Architecture Pillar will focus on providing you with a holistic understanding of each tool and its best uses. While we work to organize this content under the Architecture Pillar, please see the Developer Playbook for tips on leveraging Appian’s range of solutions.
