Appian vs SharePoint generated imageDeployment: Compared to SharePoint on-premise, Appian spoils us with ease of deployment and its potential scalability without burdening IT departments. In contrast, SharePoint Server On-Premise finds its roots within your back-office applications, gifting autonomy of data and infrastructure health measures.

Functionality: With Appian and its low-code capabilities, you can efficiently orchestrate process automation. Meanwhile, in the hands of a skilled administrator, SharePoint Server On-Premise can be a comprehensive document management platform with an array of collaborative tools supported by an intranet-led design ethos for any team.

Customisation: Appian’s strengths lie in its built-in nature, rapid development and customisation using a low code approach. SharePoint Server On-Premise allows you to create your virtual world of capabilities using web parts, custom-built SPFX solutions and workflows.

Integration: Appian is a well-integrated platform with an array of available APIs. SharePoint Server On-Premise leverages Microsoft’s technology stack fostering interoperability and the MS Graph API solution.

Collaboration: Appian’s collaboration capabilities are built to make any business more process-driven. SharePoint Server On-Premise harmonises document sharing and co-authoring, strengthening team synergies.

Scalability: Appian scales effortlessly. SharePoint Server On-Premise seeks its elevation through your hardware and infrastructure unless you have adopted SharePoint Online, to which Appian has no online offer at the time of writing this article.

Security: Appian supports security and compliance certifications leveraging over-the-air updates always to keep your applications safe. SharePoint Server On-Premise empowers guardianship. Its security and scalability perfectly represent the skills and diligence of any involvement from developers or dedicated administrators.

Ultimately, the choice between Appian and SharePoint Server On-Premise isn’t easy. It depends on your organisation’s aspirations and goals. Suppose you want to maximise your return on investment without needing in-house developers. In that case, Appian’s low-code nature will enable you to deliver any application your business might need quickly.
