Taking place during the first-ever BPM In Action Virtual Conference (, the panel will be moderated by BPM Architect and Blogger, Sandy Kemsley, and will provide attendees with insights into the opportunities and changes that BPM users can expect as a result of Web 2.0 technologies being adopted within the enterprise.

“At Appian, we believe Web 2.0 technologies are positively affecting the enterprise by helping deliver increased business value, enabling companies to address new markets, and optimizing business processes,” said Philip Larson, Director of Product Management for Appian. “This is why Appian continues to out innovate and out invest our competitors in Web 2.0 technologies such as AJAX and RSS.
