Transform enterprise app development with Appian low-code platform

Your business needs to move quickly. You need software applications that are powerful, flexible and engaging to help you seize opportunity, respond to change and constantly re-invent.

So, how can you do more with less? By using Appian’s Low-Code development platform, enabling you to build & deploy enterprise apps in minutes, without writing code.

Whether you're an existing Appian customer or not, we’re challenging you to build a new app on the Appian platform that enables your business to do more. There’s no specific theme - just show us something that improves your team’s performance.

There are three cash prizes ($5,000, $3,000, and $2,000) along with admission to Appian World 2019 and promotional support for the Appian AppMarket.

A panel from Appian will score all eligible submissions to determine the top three finalists. The finalists will be asked to demo in-person or remotely to an all-star panel of judges, including Steve Wozniak, at Appian World 2018! These judges will determine the First, Second, and Third place winners.
