Appian BPM Suite
Launch Date2004

Appian is the leading innovator in the Business Process Management industry – extending the power of BPM to mobile devices, cloud computing and social business. By making BPM universally accessible and personalized to individual users, we allow everyone to reap the benefits of process.

The nature of work (how and where it gets done), the expectations of a new generation of workers (accustomed to an “always-on/always connected” lifestyle), and emerging business models challenge traditional concepts of IT cost and time-to-value. In response, mobile computing, cloud and social business collaboration technologies are rapidly gaining momentum in corporate IT.
