KMWorld Selects Appian as a “Trend-Setting Product of 2014”

Leading Business Process Management Suite Recognized for Integrated Cloud, On-Premise and Mobile Solutions

RESTON, Va.—September 22, 2014—Appian, the market leader in modern business process management (BPM) and Case Management software, today announced that the Appian BPM Suite has been named a 2014 “Trend-Setting Product” by KMWorld Magazine. This is Appian’s eighth time being acknowledged for the award, which is publicized in the September issue of the publication.

KMWorld’s Trend-Setting Products award, now in its 12th year, is an annual listing of enterprise technology products that clearly demonstrate identifiable technology breakthroughs and deliver exceptional value. More than 650 offerings from vendors were assessed by a judging panel, which consists of editorial colleagues, analysts, system integrators, vendors themselves, line-of-business managers and users. All products selected demonstrate technology breakthroughs that serve the vendors’ full spectrum of constituencies, especially their customers.

“Appian was selected by the panel because it demonstrates thoughtful, well-reasoned innovation and execution for the most important constituency of them all: the customer,” said Hugh McKellar, Editor in Chief of KMWorld Magazine.
