DevOps and Testing

Improve your DevOps at every stage of development and delivery.

Go from dysfunctional separation to efficient collaboration.
Eliminate coding and testing bottlenecks.
Streamline continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipelines.

The low-code + DevOps advantage.

DevOps and low-code have a common goal: to deliver better software to users, fast. 

They do this by breaking down silos between IT leaders, development, operations, and business experts. 

That’s what the Appian Low-Code Platform delivers—a clear, competitive business advantage by eliminating coding and testing bottlenecks and fostering complete collaboration.  

DevOps support is woven into our low-code fabric.
