Appian announces the latest version of the Appian Platform, fusing Generative AI and process automation.

With the new generative AI prompt builder AI Skill, users can harness the power of Appian's private generative AI to apply within their process automations. Using Appian's AI Skill Designer, users leverage generative AI by providing business context to an embedded large language model (LLM) that automates business work, such as content summarization, content generation, customer and employee communications, and more. Using Appian's low-code design approach, building these new generative AI skills is fast and intuitive. Users are able to walk through a simple design experience and are able to immediately test the AI Skill in-line for instant validation.

Case Management Studio is designed to empower users to rapidly build custom case management solutions on Appian. With its intuitive no-code tools, drag-and-drop form modification, and simplified data modeling, this case management as a service (CMaaS) approach allows users to swiftly launch apps for complex casework. Advanced AI and automation capabilities assist at every stage of the case, helping business users streamline their workflows by managing routine case management tasks, such as case  summarization, case linking, and AI-powered search and duplication resolution. Case Management Studio also solves operational problems by connecting departments, identifying existing inefficiencies, and providing business leaders with automated insights for continuous process improvement.

Additional new capabilities in the latest release of the Appian Platform include:

  • Data Fabric Analytics. Data Fabric Analytics offers enhanced business intelligence reporting for every Appian user. This dedicated reporting space is now generally available (GA), marking the end of a successful preview release. Users can now utilize Data Fabric Analytics to dig into data using AI generated insights to identify patterns, and summarize findings.
  • Streamlined RPA for faster end-to-end automation. Robotic tasks can now be directly executed from an Appian process model, eliminating the need for additional integrations. The enhanced operations console ensures operations personas can effortlessly monitor robotic task executions and vitals.
  • Ability to leverage popular plug-ins directly inside Appian Portals. Features like rich text editors, Google Maps, and ESRI ArcGIS Maps can now be seamlessly integrated into portals, providing customers with enhanced user experiences.
  • FedRAMP certification for Appian Portals. FedRAMP certification is the gold standard of security and risk assessment for cloud technologies and federal agencies. Achieving FedRAMP certification makes Appian Portals a trusted choice for federal agencies for building public and citizen facing web applications.
