Appian World 2012 – Post-Conference Training

I wish I could say “By the way, don’t forget about our Appian World 2012 Post-Conference Training Seminars”, but apparently many of our registrations have already remembered.

So far, 60% of registrations have signed up for our Wednesday April 18th training sessions.  This was more than we had planned, but we will be sure to prep the training rooms and be prepared to handle the expected large audiences for the 4th day of Appian World 2012.

The Appian World 2012’s Post-Conference Training event is open to all conference attendees and will feature top Appian experts covering some of the hottest topics in our user community.  Each session will run for 3 hours and provide in-depth discussions and guidelines for tackling some of the advanced aspects of the Appian BPM Suite.

For a listing of available sessions and details on each course, please review the table below.

Zero Code Integration

Appian application designers have access to a wide range of integration options without a single line of custom coding. This workshop will feature demonstrations, useful tips and tricks, and open discussion around the use of web services, JMS, RDBMS, email, and more. We’ll also show you how to use these capabilities to bring backend systems into your business processes and to expose legacy data through modern social and mobile interfaces.

Appian Advanced Feature

Data lies at the core of many of today’s business processes. Appian’s advanced data features give process designers the power to store and retrieve critical business data from relational databases. This workshop will show attendees how to use Appian’s data features to define complex data types (CDTs) and then persist and retrieve data based on CDTs.

As a reminder, Appian World 2012 is a Free conference and open to any of our customers, partners, and invited guests.  Seating is limited, so be sure to register soon.  We are looking forward to a great event in April and hope to see you there.
