FYI, this story is more than a year old

Appian announced that it has been designated a November 2019 Gartner Peer Insights Customers' Choice for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms.

According to Gartner, enterprise low-code application platforms (LCAP) “support rapid application development, one-step deployment, execution, and management using declarative, high-level abstractions, such as model-driven and metadata-based programming languages.

Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Low-Code Application Platforms report names Appian a market Leader, and predicts that “by 2024, low-code application development will be responsible for more than 65% of application development activity.

Gartner Peer Insights complements Gartner's Magic Quadrant and Critical Capabilities reports by offering feedback and ratings from end-user professionals who have experience purchasing, implementing, and/or using low-code application platforms.

To qualify for Customers' Choice distinction, vendors must achieve an overall rating (out of 5 stars) equal to or higher than the mean rating for that market.

They must also have a number of reviews (50+) and meet additional requirements for diversity of reviews.

As of 25 November 2019, Appian has a total of 217 ratings for the LCAP market with an average rating of 4.5 out of 5.

Below are selected reviews of Appian submitted in the last 12 months:
