We are your Appian experts.
Our Appian knowledge and experience are second to none, and our best practices and design patterns are unmatched in the Appian partner community. We have an expert team of problem-solvers that are specifically selected for both a robust understanding of technology and a high business acumen. In our mission of delivering high value to your business, we swiftly incorporate business changes to our applications by using an agile-based SDLC customized for Appian projects and maintain a collection of accelerators and custom plugins that help turbo-charge development and accelerate delivery times.
Regardless of where you are in your digital transformation journey, our experts can lead you to success with the Appian platform. This can begin even before project selection, with strategic discovery sessions to help identify the highest-value effort to focus on, process engineering and reengineering workshops, and platform installation/architecture recommendations. Once the project itself starts, we offer full-lifecycle system development including architecture, analysis, design, implementation, integrations, testing, deployment - as well as change management to ensure business acceptance and adoption of the new application. Finally, because the business doesn’t stop changing just because a project is finished, we offer support and sustainability to provide incremental changes to extend the long-term value of the application for the business.
Success with your Appian program is driven by understanding the right place to start. During Discovery, our experts lead your team through a series of workshops weighing strategic and tactical goals, complexity, and program readiness. The outcome of this is a comprehensive plan, identifying the highest-value efforts to focus on and a logical go-live schedule that will provide the highest adoption rates.
These workshops can be revisited periodically as the pipeline of possible projects grows, to reassess and realign the program plan with the most critical upcoming business needs.
Often clients have complex, inefficient legacy processes that hamstring the business. Through a series of workshops and interviews, our experts refine and optimize existing processes, leveraging their deep knowledge of the Appian platform capabilities to provide real-time visualization of how the streamlined processes can create significant improvement. Leverage our Process Engineering experts to improve everything from antiquated manual processes with paper, emails, and spreadsheets, to harmonizing processes previously fractured between multiple technologies, to coordinating across global teams who each have their own regulatory requirements to accomplish similar outcomes.
Engage our experts to help grow your Appian practice from one or two projects to a true enterprise-wide asset. We mentor your team on Appian design and implementation patterns, standards, best practices, technology fit, and governance, along with program management, portfolio management, and sustainability.
Have an existing application with performance, quality, or general stability issues? We can quickly diagnose the problems then plan and execute corrective actions.
We are experts delivering Appian-centric solutions through the full software development life cycle, including analysis, design, development, testing, and deployment. We have experts not only in development, but gathering and analysis of requirements, process engineering, and project management.
Looking to retire a legacy system? We understand the balance of re-engineering processes and improving capabilities while retiring the legacy system in a timely manner.
Looking to add new features to an existing application? Being experts on the Appian platform, we are able to quickly come up to speed on an existing application and deliver new features.
We have an expansive collection of pre-built and hardened applications, utilities, and accelerators. Leveraging these assets dramatically decreases standard development and testing time, allowing our team to focus on truly unique, high-value features.
Rapid development cycles allow applications to keep pace with the dynamic needs of the business. How do you maintain efficiency while ensuring code quality, standardized processes, and management of multiple development streams? Macedon has proven ability to utilize a suite of CI/CD tools to create development pipelines that include automated testing of code deployments, patching to address urgent functionality changes within larger development iterations, and enable scalability of development teams when you have increased need on tight timelines.
Hosting or planning to host Appian on-site? We offer a complete set of services to build and maintain a successful on-site Appian deployment, including initial Appian installation, an upgrade to the latest Appian version, scaling your environment, and planning for disaster recovery. We have developed best practices that reduce maintenance time and simplify configuration. We have experience working with many common web servers, application servers, and database software packages.
With our RPA-certified Architects guiding the way, Macedon can help your organization utilize bots to integrate with legacy systems, increase the accuracy of data entry, and scale manual processes with your business. With built-in connectors linking Appian with common RPA platforms, Macedon can imbed RPA processes within your workflows while capturing metrics about the data for downstream applications.
