Appian Announces “Collaborative BPM: Connecting People to People” Webinar Featuring Industry Luminary Bruce Silver

Vienna, VA – April 10, 2006 Appian, the leading provider of human-centric business process management (BPM) suites, today announced a free, 60-minute webinar entitled, “Collaborative BPM: Connecting People to People” on Thursday, April 13 from 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Featuring speaker Bruce Silver, Principal of Bruce Silver Associates, the webinar will focus on how today’s high-performance organizations are recognizing the benefits of integrating BPM with dynamic collaboration tools.

As organizational processes and workflows become more automated and interconnected, companies are relying more on inter- and intra-organizational knowledge and expertise to make critical operational decisions. BPM involves both a business methodology of analyzing and measuring activities and events across the enterprise, as well as technology tools for managing, monitoring and improving these processes. By leveraging BPM in conjunction with collaboration technology, organizations can experience greater efficiency and agility, broader visibility and actionable business insight. Appian is realizing this synergy today, delivering a comprehensive BPM suite that directly embeds collaborative technology such as shared workspaces, discussion threads, weblogs and document management.

In this free webinar, BPM expert Dr. Bruce Silver will walk attendees through the basics of BPM, identify the compelling reasons to invest in this powerful technology, and describe how collaboration tools will benefit their organizations. Silver is an independent industry analyst and consultant focused on business process management and content management technologies. He is the author of the 2006 BPMS Report, a free review of leading BPMS offerings available through BPMInstitute.org, as well as numerous free reports and white papers available at www.brsilver.com. He writes the Change Agent column in Intelligent Enterprise magazine, the BPMS Watch column on BPMInstitute.org, feature stories on BPM and ECM in Intelligent Enterprise and InfoWorld, and recently has been blogging on “BPM 2.0” at IT | Redux. He also serves as BPMS Track chair at the Brainstorm BPM Conferences and provides training on BPMS Technology, Architecture, and Product Selection through those conferences.

Appian’s Director of Product Strategy, Phil Larson, will speak on how a comprehensive BPM suite platform can enable collaboration and improve the performance of distributed virtual teams by centralizing processes, tasks and vital content.
