UniSA goes low-code with Appian for admin apps

By

The University of South Australia has adopted Appian Cloud as a low-code platform for a variety of applications.

The University of South Australia has used Appian Cloud to deploy a range of apps for recruiting, contracting, human resources and procurement processes, eliminating paper forms, accelerating operations and modernised the staff and student experience.

Many more Appian applications are planned as part of the university's strategy to make its administrative systems paperless by 2018.

The university's first Appian application covered processes relating to casual academic employees, including recruitment, contracting, and time-sheet submission and approval. The app replaces about 600 paper documents a month with Web and mobile equivalents, eliminates the need to re-enter the data into the underlying systems, and reduces process completion times from days or weeks to minutes.

Nearing completion is a redesigned travel request and approval process for academics travelling on university business and students booking travel for semesters abroad. It combines data from various sources including Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade travel warnings and alerts, and the university's booking portal.

"We view Appian Cloud as the delivery platform for change," said deputy director of information strategy Tony Dalwood.

"We are exceptionally pleased with the results we have seen to-date. The performance of the cloud solution, and its interaction with this university's data sources has exceed expectations, and we are excited about expanding that value deeper across the university in the future."
