Appian Recognized as an Inaugural Member of AWS SaaS Partner Program Launch

Cloud Application Platform Provider Delivers Innovative Apps on AWS Cloud

RESTON, Va.—July 9, 2015— Appian, provider of an application platform for Business Process Management (BPM) and Case Management solutions, today announced its participation as an inaugural partner in the Amazon Web Services (AWS) SaaS Partner Program. Appian and AWS have a long-standing and proven relationship in delivering innovative, secure, and robust enterprise applications that leverage Appian Cloud running on AWS. Appian Cloud supports AWS regions throughout the US (including the AWS GovCloud (US) Region), Ireland, Germany, Singapore, Australia, and Brazil.

The AWS SaaS Partner Program equips participating organizations with educational resources, access to an Innovation Sandbox, and more, to accelerate delivery of high-value SaaS solutions. Companies, like Appian, who deliver applications through the use of the AWS SaaS Partner Program create scalable cloud solutions that are compatible with an organization’s existing host environment. The extended relationship with AWS reflects the growing demand for Appian Cloud both for SaaS and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) application development. Hundreds of commercial and government organizations around the world, including Ryder System, Inc., Enterprise Holdings, Inc., Dallas Fort/Worth International Airport (DFW), the General Services Administration, and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), use Appian Cloud to rapidly deliver innovative, powerful business apps.

Appian Cloud is acknowledged by industry analysts as a leading platform for BPM PaaS. Businesses use the Appian platform as a single environment for the delivery and consumption of applications that accelerate smarter decisions and actions across the enterprise. This speed and intelligence is derived from Appian’s mobile accessibility through all major mobile devices (and via web browser), its intuitive social interface that requires little or no training, and its complete enterprise data navigation through Appian Records.

“Appian Cloud is one of the fastest and most effective ways to deliver custom applications to transform the modern enterprise,” said Myles Weber, Vice President of Cloud and Community Services at Appian. “Our participation as an inaugural member in the AWS SaaS Partner Program demonstrates our commitment to providing the most secure, flexible, and easy-to-use solution for organizations to achieve their business goals by leveraging the capabilities of the AWS Cloud.”

“Appian is a long-time member of the AWS Partner Network (APN) and we are pleased that Appian Cloud, built on AWS, recently received Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) authorization. The continued expansion of the Appian Cloud platform delivers innovative business solutions to Appian’s global customer base,” said Brian Matsubara, Head of Global Technology Alliances for AWS. “Through participation in APN programs, such as the AWS SaaS Partner Program, Appian has built out customer engagements and successfully migrated their customers to AWS. Appian’s expansion of their SaaS portfolio is bolstered through the business and technical support provided through the AWS SaaS Partner Program.”
