Appian World 2011 – Explore Mobile, Cloud and Social BPM

Appian World 2011, Appian’s customer and BPM community conference, is fast approaching. We’re about 3 weeks to going live in Reston, Virginia on April 13, 2011. While we expect almost 500 attendees, the most exciting part of this conference is going to be the theme: Mobile BPM, Cloud BPM and Social BPM.

Appian’s latest product release effectively integrates all three of these technology inflection points. This enables customers to effectively use BPM in the Cloud, on the Road and in their Social Network. A number of presentations, panels and customer case studies will highlight how customers can expand and strengthen their BPM programs through the use of Appian 6.5/Appian Tempo.

Appian World 2011 has something for everyone.  For the novice beginner just trying to understand the power of BPM, we have a half-day training program on Wednesday (April 13), kicked off by Sandy Kemsley, a leading BPM consultant and blogger. Appian Partners have a dedicated forum and exchange session also on Wednesday. Thursday kicks off with powerful keynote presentations from Gartner and Appian, followed by a series of customer case studies from Nokia Siemens Networks, Edward Jones, UPS, Pinnacle People and the US Army. Commercial and Government breakouts provide an opportunity for more in-depth presentations and exchange on topics like Cloud BPM and Government BPM Solutions. Friday, April 15, features another packed agenda featuring keynotes from Forrester Research and an expert customer panel. Appian partners have an opportunity to educate the attendees on how they effectively extend the use of Appian’s BPM software. Friday afternoon also provides in-depth training sessions for Appian’s existing customers and partners, before the conference concludes on Friday afternoon.

If the content above was not compelling enough, Appian World 2011 attendees will also be treated to a live Mobile and Social experience using Appian’s latest software release. More to come on that as we get closer to the conference. If you haven’t signed-up yet, now is the time! See you all there in a few weeks!!
