Gartner to Feature BPM at ITxpo Orlando

Here’s another sign that the BPM train continues to gain steam: next week’s Gartner Symposium ITxpo 2010 in Orlando will feature an entire track of content dedicated to BPM and business process improvement. Gartner has an established focus on process issues and BPM Suite technology, of course, but this is the first time the topic has risen to Symposium-level mainstream awareness.

Appian is a sponsor of the event, which runs October 18-21. We will be on-site giving demonstrations of our Appian 6 platform in Booth #320 throughout the conference. Please stop by to see one, or to schedule a private one-one demo.

In addition to BPMS-focused presentations, Gartner analysts will also be talking about a range of issues related to BPMS success. These include moving from operational excellence to adaptive processes, advancing process management maturity, measuring BPM, a look at the skills and roles needed for BPM success, and more. If you are currently using, or thinking of moving to, cloud-based BPM, I encourage you to check out Michele Cantara’s session on “How Cloudy is Your Business Process Management Suite and Why Does it Matter?”

It’s exciting to see Gartner move the topic of BPM beyond the realm of a Technology Summit and into something as big as ITxpo. We hope to see you there!
