Appian Named a Leader in BPM Suites by Independent Research Firm

“Appian Shines with Strong Vision for Social and Mobile Engagement”

RESTON, Va.–March 11, 2013– Appian, the market leader in modern business process management (BPM) software, has been named a Leader by Forrester Research, Inc. in the independent analyst firm’s “Forrester Wave™: BPM Suites, Q1 2013” report. The report evaluates BPM Suite vendors across 59 key criteria to help enterprise architects select the right solution to support launching and scaling enterprise-wide BPM programs.

Appian’s worksocial BPM platform drives new levels of enterprise efficiency and customer engagement through the deep integration of process, data, social collaboration and native mobility. Appian believes that delivery on this innovative vision was key to the company’s report positioning. According to the report, “Appian shines with strong vision for social and mobile engagement.” The report further states:

“Since our 2010 BPM suite Wave evaluation, Appian has extended its leadership position for mobile and social engagement… One of the unique features of Appian’s social work stream is that users can take process-related actions directly from work stream events, such as completing or reassigning tasks. Additionally, in the latest version of the product Appian provides a “records” view that allows users to view different business objects (i.e., records) and processes associated with these objects. Users can also execute process-related actions from a given record or business object.”

“Worksocial is the next-generation convergence of process management and social business,” said Matt Calkins, president and CEO of Appian. “Appian drives better business decisions and faster business action by making the full power of BPM available to everyone in the enterprise and easily consumable on any device.”
