Flinders Pro Vice Chancellor Information Systems Professor Richard Constantine Appian Congratulates Flinders University Professor Richard Constantine on Winning CIO of the Year

More great happenings out of Appian’s APAC region!

Flinders University CIO professor Richard Constantine recently won the CIO of the Year award for his excellent contributions in leading an 18 month information and communication (ICT) transformation project at the university in Adelaide, Australia.

The innovative project – called ‘Connecting Flinders’ – aims to roll out high-performance wireless connections, video conferencing, an advanced online teaching and research capability, and strong social media collaboration. This is the first time a university CIO has won the award as past recipients have mainly come from large public companies and government sectors.

The university recently added the Appian BPM Suite to Connecting Flinders as a way to further improve how work gets done across the university. Appian will provide a dynamic work platform to manage business processes, automate work, and implement technologies such as social collaboration and mobility for university-wide initiatives.

John Lewis   109208 317863c John Lewis Taps Appian to Transform the Employee and Customer Experience

I’m always overwhelmed whenever I walk into a Home Depot. Not because I’m not a handyman. I’m not too shabby with power tools, and I know my light bulbs given my experience in the clean energy industry.

No, it’s the kitchen and bath section. That place is scary! I can remember being a kid and spending hours at one of those stores watching my parents and a sales rep try to make sense of the mess that is custom home furnishing.

Makes me glad I still rent.

However, one leading retailer is doing some pretty impressive things with modern technology to help transform the customer experience.

John Lewis, the largest department store retailer in the UK, recently took the first steps towards modernizing these efforts by deploying their “Customer Project Management” (CPM) application. Using the Appian Cloud solution, CPM allows John Lewis employees (called Partners in the co-owned business) to accelerate how customer orders are managed and fulfilled for Fitted Kitchens, Floor Coverings and Made to Measure Curtains and Blinds. This new solution is part of the John Lewis ambition to further improve and optimize the customer journey through digitization, automation, data and analytics.

From the moment I made my foray into the corporate world, I’ve been recognized as that recruiter: the recruiter who offers unsolicited professional advice to many students with whom she meets.

I can’t help myself.

It’s no secret that I am the loudest person in the room.

I can’t help myself:  I love my job. I repeat, I LOVE my job. But what’s more? I love Appian (and I love laughing).
