Appian Tips and Tricks Webinar, Sept 16th – The Critical Role of Data in Your Process Applications

In case you missed the recent press release and notifications on Appian Forum, Appian just released a number of major architectural improvement to the Appian BPM platform.  This is an exciting release for customers who want to integrate and persist their data in the enterprise data repository of their choice and build process solutions that scale to massive size.

The latest Appian Tips & Tricks webinar will again feature myself and Brett Shomaker, our Group Technology Program Manager, walking through all the new features and giving a demonstration of the new data management capabilities.  Please register here or on Appian Forum if you would like to attend.

Appian Tips & Tricks webinar will be held on Thursday, September 16th, 12 PM to 1 PM EST.  Live questions will be handled during the call.

Specifically, feature capabilities include:

  • Data Store Integration
    Data Administrators can now register their enterprise Data Stores with Appian and create simple object-oriented views for users to query and update data from their process application. Appian also adds an additional security layer to ensure tight controls over querying enterprise data.
  • Business Designer Empowerment
    Without knowledge of SQL or other complex coding languages, non-technical process designers and end-users can now create process applications that query and update enterprise data sources from the simple drag-and-drop Appian Process Modeler and Forms Designer.
  • Master Data Management
    Appian now makes it simple for designers to create processes that merge and consolidate multiple enterprise data sources to ensure data governance and quality or create process applications with expansive views of data across the enterprise.
  • Data Definition Portability
    Appian now makes enterprise data definitions a re-usable SOA component and part of the Appian Application Package profile, easing re-use and portability of process applications between disparate RDBMS platforms, on-premise and in cloud environments, or in the Appian Forum community.

We look forward to seeing you on the 16th at 12 PM EST.  For those of you who cannot make it, a full recording of all Tips & Tricks webinars are made available on Appian Forum under the Resources Tab.
