What do Appian teams look like? First, they’re smaller than typical software development teams. That’s because Appian doesn’t require a deep bench of labor or a breadth of specialized expertise. Smaller teams tend to be more agile as well, which lets you capitalize on Appian’s ability to turn out applications quickly. Learn more about hiring the right potential team members.
Another characteristic of Appian teams is that they’re more inclusive. The Appian platform lets you sit down with stakeholders and build an application together, dragging and dropping pre-built components as you go. It removes the traditional barrier between developers and end users, making application development a genuinely collaborative experience.

“While each team member has a primary role, our most effective teams are cross-trained. For instance, Appian team leaders also do some of the coding, and our developers also are trained in aspects of architecture and project management. Because all of the team members have a degree of fluency in each other’s area, it facilitates effective communication and collaboration.”
