Appian and TeamCatapult Partner to Empower U.S. Federal Government to Maximize BPM Investments

VIENNA, VA.– October 25, 2007 Appian, an innovative global provider of business process management (BPM) technology, and TeamCatapult, a management and technology services company, today announced a strategic partnership designed to deliver BPM solutions to the U.S. federal government. Appian’s deep technical expertise and leading BPM suite together with TeamCatapult’s business consulting services will enable U.S. government agencies to maximize their technology investment and strategize ongoing business improvement.

Leading government agencies are increasingly looking to BPM solutions to help streamline the business of government. Daily challenges, such as budgetary constraints, policy changes, and public demands for greater accountability continually push organizations to drive improvements in productivity and work quality by automating complex business processes and providing real-time access to critical information and applications.

Since its founding in 1999, Appian has been working with government agencies and key systems integrators to enable agency-wide process improvements. The automation of complex processes and the provision of real-time access to critical information and applications drive significant, measurable improvements in productivity and work quality.

“TeamCatapult’s deep consulting expertise is a natural complement to Appian’s BPM technology,” said Joe Barry, Appian vice president, channels and alliances. “TeamCatapult’s consulting methodology, project management, and continuous process improvement skills will benefit our common U.S. government customers and empower them to maximize their BPM investment agency-wide.”

“Successful BPM projects demand an enterprise-wide approach, clearly defined business processes, sufficient attention to personnel and cultural impacts, and an on-going plan for continuous process improvement,” stated Sara Kindsfater-Yerkes, vice president, TeamCatapult. “By marrying Appian’s BPM technology with TeamCatapult’s team of consultants, we will empower U.S. government agencies to achieve continuous process improvement through the alignment of IT systems and business processes.”
