Modern BPM Technology Combined with Implementation Guidance, Support and Best Practices will Benefit Companies of Any Size

RESTON, Va.–March 12 2012–Appian, the global innovator in enterprise and cloud-based business process management (BPM) software, and Centrum Systems, the Australia-based business process management specialists, today announced that they have partnered to bring fast deployment of high-value BPM solutions to companies of all sizes across the Austria/New Zealand (ANZ) region.

Appian, the leader in Mobile BPM, Cloud BPM, and Social BPM, recently announced the opening of its ANZ regional headquarters in Sydney and its Melbourne regional office.

“Thanks to innovations including cloud delivery and native mobility, modern BPM software like the Appian BPM Suite has evolved to where its value is now available to any size of organization,” said Alex Bullen, CEO at Centrum Systems. “However, BPM is a management practice as much as it is a technology. Centrum’s team brings the hands on experience and best practices to help customers establish a sustainable approach to incremental continual process improvement and ensure that BPM delivers the bankable benefits it promises.”

Appian’s innovative Mobile BPM and Social BPM capabilities make the power of process and collaboration universally accessible on any device platform and easily consumable through a familiar and intuitive interface.
