The entire award-winning Appian BPM Suite is now available through the Internet browser – there are no downloads required for modeling or running automated processes. This subscription service provides all the functionality of the Appian Enterprise BPM Suite plus additional features to provide organizations and departments with effortless site branding, administration and application deployment.”Appian Anywhere provides entirely new, creative and cost-effective ways for organizations of any size to deploy leading-edge Business Process Management software,” said George Barlow, VP and General Manager for the Appian Anywhere Business Unit of Appian. “There are many significant benefits immediately available to Appian Anywhere subscribers.

The Appian Anywhere service will also deliver a wide variety of partner developed enterprise applications that provide significant strategic advantages to our subscribers.”

Appian Anywhere sets the bar for on-demand BPM offerings by providing a comprehensive platform for the design, execution and optimization of business processes entirely over the web. Full portal, collaboration and content management capabilities augment process and rules capabilities to enable subscribers to build and run useful processes faster than ever before. Moreover, subscribers will have access to many free ready-to-run processes as soon as they sign up. Business users can easily change these processes to reflect the specific way their businesses are run.

“The time for BPM software to be provided as a service has arrived. Combining many key web innovations with a standards-based infrastructure and mission-critical reliability and security, Appian Anywhere appeals to a number of different user communities,” said Matt Calkins, CEO at Appian. “Small and medium sized organizations that want to make use of the power of Business Process Management can begin realizing ROI immediately because there are no significant up-front investments and minimum startup costs.”
