Appian Positioned in the Leaders Quadrant in New Gartner, Inc. Magic Quadrant for Intelligent Business Process Management Suites 2015 Report

RESTON, Va.—March 23, 2015—Appian, provider of the leading application platform for business process management (BPM) and Case Management solutions, today announced that it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the “Leaders” quadrant in the new “Magic Quadrant for Intelligent Business Process Management Suites 2015″ (Gartner, Inc. “Magic Quadrant for Intelligent Business Process Management Suites 2015″ by R. Dunie, et al, 3/18/15).

According to the report, “intelligent business process management suites compress the observation-to-action-to-outcome cycle, and help business transformation leaders, business process directors and solution architects establish a fluid capability to handle big change. The iBPMS market is the natural evolution of the earlier BPMS market, adding more emphasis on support for greater system and human intelligence within business processes.” The report positions 15 vendors that are focused on the market space.

iBPMS platforms extend the transformational enterprise value of BPM through tight integration of modern technologies including data management and analytics, mobility, social collaboration, and cloud computing. These capabilities accelerate the decision-making cycle of Awareness, Knowledge, and Action to drive better decisions and faster organizational response to customer needs and changing marketplace challenges and opportunities. As the report states, “An iBPMS orchestrates work to produce business outcomes that go far beyond typical process efficiency and performance measures.”

Matthew Calkins, president and CEO at Appian, said, “Appian is focused on helping our customers broaden their awareness of what is happening right now within their organization, markets and customers, and accelerate the translation of that awareness into action and business outcomes. We are pleased to be recognized as a Leader.”
